On Sunday, the equestrian team once again proved that it is a competitive force at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association at Mount Ida College. MIT competed against 10 other local schools and fielded riders in four divisions ranging from beginner walk-trot equitation to novice equitation over fences.

MIT took home two second place awards in novice equitation. Christina Saltzman '99 earned second place over fences and Miki Hertz '99 placed second in equitation on the flat. Saltzman also earned sixth place in novice equitation on the flat.

Nina Kutsuzawa '00 received third place in walk-trot equitation and Heather Drake '99 earned fifth place in beginner walk-trot-canter equitation. Kathy Navarrete '98 also competed in advanced walk-trot-canter.

Next weekend the team will head up to Dartmouth College to compete. The fall season will come to a close the following weekend at the Boston University home show.
