Hunter Seat Riders Head to SMU

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- The Texas A&M equestrian team¹s hunter seat group will head to Dallas on Friday for a 1 p.m. match-up with Southern Methodist.

The Aggie hunter seat unit has started the year off on fire, winning all
four of their competitions, including a huge 6-4 win over national runner-up Georgia on Oct. 20. Both the fences and the flat groups have both started the year with 4-0 records as well in helping lead A&M to a perfect 4-0 overall team mark.

SMU, who currently only competes in hunter seat competitions, had a rough
start to the season, dropping 12-0 and 10-2 decisions at Georgia and at
Fresno State, respectively, earlier this month. The Mustangs are in their
first year under new head coach Ashley Schaeffer, who was hired on Sept. 5.

The Aggies hold a 2-0 record all-time against SMU since going to the varsity
format last season. The Aggies won a tiebreaker after a 6-6 deadlock in
College Station last Oct. 15, while also defeating the Mustangs, 6-2, during
the first round of the Varsity Equestrian National Championships in Waco on
April 18.

The location of Friday¹s show is 8787 Park Lane, Dallas, TX 75231.
