AU hunt seat team ends season at Zones

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY - Four members of the Alfred University hunt seat equestrian team competed Saturday, April 7, at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Zone II championship show hosted by Skidmore College.

The team’s season ended at the Zone championship show, as none of the AU riders finished in the top two of their respective events, required to advance to the IHSA national championships next month in Raleigh, NC.

Following are the results for the four AU riders who competed in Saturday’s Zone II championships:

Senior Katie LeSuer (Edinboro, PA/Cambridge Springs), seventh in novice equitation over fences, and junior Tesla Parker (Waitsfield, VT/Harwood Union), sixth in intermediate equitation on the flat; junior Amelia Keyes (Webster, NY), 10th in novice equitation on the flat; and sophomore Christina Watts (Barryville, NY/Eldred), fifth in walk-trot.
