    BaylorFans.com Hunter Seat Takes Down Aggies For National Title

    WACO - Baylor equestrian's Hunter Seat team took home its first national championship, with a thrilling victory over Texas A&M that came down to a 1192-1070 win on points after a 4-4 tie at the National Collegiate Equestrian Association Championship at Extraco Events Center in Waco. The victory also ensured a third place finish overall, the highest finish in program history.

    "I can't describe this feeling we have right now," head coach Ellen White said. "All I asked was that we go 3-0, and this team stepped up as a whole and accomplished it. This is a special group of young women that just wanted so badly to be successful that they wouldn't be denied."

    The Bears battled the Aggies to a 2-2 tie in Flat, as BU scored the first and final points during the discipline. Taylor Brown totaled a 138 and Kim Woodsum added a 136 for Baylor.

    Texas A&M took a brief 3-2 lead in Fences before Taylor Brown evened it up with a high score of 174. The Aggies took the lead back before Samantha Schaefer took to her horse for the final ride. After TAMU had scored a zero in Flat, Schaefer needed to beat a 165 for the tie and title. The freshman rode beautifully en route to a 173 and a BU national title.

    "I am so proud of the team," Schaefer said. "I knew I had a good score to beat, but I was confident in my ability to do it."

    Schaefer earned Most Valuable Rider over Fences after going 3-0 and averaging the highest score throughout the championship.

    Holy Moses!!! The year of the BEAR. I have to wonder if this year we won't wrestle even the Meat Judging National Championship away from Texas A & M.

    I will award rep points when I can.

    Hopefully I will not mistakenly deduct points as I did to ValpoCory earlier today.

    Glad we took home the honors! Sic 'em Bears!

    That's honestly all I understood in that article. I have no idea what the scores or event titles mean.

    "Hunter Seat" is an odd name for a girl, but I don't care what her name is as long as she won the National Championship.
