Three Equestrian Team Members Qualify for National Meet

—By Laura Nelson on 09/14/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—Katy Doke, Jena Braun, and Misty Lethcho and their equine partners will travel to Colorado Springs later this month to compete in the National Versatility Ranch Horse Association (NVRHA) Finals.

The women will be competing against other riders from across the U.S. Sept. 21-23 to earn national titles in their respective divisions-Doke in Intermediate and Braun and Lethcho in Novice. The judges will be looking for how well the horse responds to its rider's directions, the willingness of the animal to perform various tasks and the horse's conformation. Doke is also enjoying celebrity status as a photo of her was featured on the cover of the latest issue of The Rundown, the national magazine of the NVRHA!

Coach Channing Hawks is looking forward to a great year with the equestrian and ranch horse teams, OPSU programs that continue to grow. At their organizational meeting, 17 students expressed an interest in representing OPSU. Good luck and we hope to hear great news later this month!
