K-State equestrian to host TCU on Saturday

By The Mercury

The sixth-ranked Kansas State equestrian team will look to finish the regular season undefeated at home on Saturday when the Wildcats host No. 9 TCU at Timbercreek Stables.

Free and open to the public, the Wildcats will honor 21 seniors. The meet is set to begin at 9 a.m.

K-State will feature the same Hunter Seat lineup that defeated No. 7 Baylor, 6-4. Rachel Webster and Cat Avolese enter the meet after going a combined 4-0 against the Bears and will compete in both events.

Henley Adkins and Madison Wayda will join the senior duo in both Equitation Over Fences and Equitation on the Flat.

Jacquelyn Bogstad will be the fifth member of the Flat team, while Shana Barnett competes in Fences.

The Western team will also feature the same lineup that helped takedown the Bears last weekend. Of the 10 riders competing for the Wildcats, seven will make their last home appearance.

Four of those seniors will be competing in Horsemanship. Kelly Bovaird, Amelia Crites, Chayna DeNicolo, and Rachel Wetherell will hope to finish on a positive note.

Sophomore Danielle Kemper is will be the lone underclassman in the group.

In Reining, Jordan Cox, Jesse Johnson, and Emily Stockford will lead a strong group into the arena. The trio can make an impact in their home finale.

Savannah Smith and Kara Guy round out the starting lineup for the Wildcats.

Following the meet, K-State will have ceremony honoring their seniors.

K-State will have about three weeks following this weekend’s meet to prepare for the Big 12 Championship in Waco, Texas, March 28-29.
