HARRISBURG, PA -- Alfred University junior Derek Partridge (Groveland, NY/Geneseo) placed seventh in the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) High Point Rider competition, held Saturday and Sunday in Harrisburg.

 

Partridge competed in three phases of the AQHA High Point Rider competition, held Saturday and Sunday as part of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) national championships. He ended the first phase in 16th place, and moved to fourth after the second phase before ending the show with a seventh-place overall finish.

 

Partridge qualified for the competition by virtue of being the high point Western rider in IHSA Zone 2 Region 1 this season.

 

It was a solid showing for Partridge, who on Friday took seventh in Western open reining.
