Webster to compete in equestrian challenge

By The Mercury

Kansas State equestrian captain Rachel Webster was one of 16 riders selected to compete in Friday’s WEF Collegiate Equitation Challenge.

This is her second straight selection to this event. Last year, Webster finished second in the consolation bracket.

“We are excited to take Rachel back to the WEF Collegiate Equestrian Challenge for the second year in a row,” K-State head coach Casie Maxwell said. “She has been a leader on this team, both in and out of the arena, and definitely deserves to go back and represent K-State again.”

The senior from Mechanicsville, Va., has been a standout leader for the Wildcats.

This season, Webster has a 5-4 record in Equitation Over Fences, with two of those wins garnering Most Outstanding Player (MOP) honors.

“I am humbled and honored to represent Kansas State Equestrian at such a prestigious event,” Webster said. “The Collegiate Equitation Challenge at WEF is an excellent way to showcase the format of Collegiate Equestrian, and helps to further this growing sport.”

The preliminary round is set to begin at 2 p.m. with the eight winners moving on to the final round.

The fourth-ranked Wildcats return to action on Feb. 15 when K-State travels to Stillwater, Okla., to face seventh-ranked Oklahoma State.

K-State’s next home competition is Feb. 28 against No. 2 Baylor.
