Riders Face Big Weekend With ODAC Show And Zones Final

The Bridgewater College riding team is preparing for a big weekend with the ODAC Show on Friday at Hollins and the IHSA Zones show Sunday at the Bridgewater College Equestrian Center.

The ODAC Championship Show will be hosted Friday at Hollins University. A year ago, the Eagles finished second at the ODAC show.

Sunday, for the first time in Bridgewater College history, the BC riders will host the IHSA Zones at the Bridgewater College Equestrian Center.

The Eagles enter the zones competition as a team after placing first in the year-long region standings.

Representing the Eagles in the individual class competitions will be Chelsea Hames in Open Over Fences, Lauren Casey, Jamie Robinson and Lindsay Ferguson in Novice on the Flat, Savannah English in Walk-Trot-Canter and Corrie Fitz in Walk-Trot.

There will be 12 riders in each class for individual riders. The first and second place finishers will move on to the IHSA National Championships which will be held at the Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky next month.

Sunday's show begins at 9:30 a.m. at the BCEC.
