Western riders win back-to-back horse shows

East Campus equine program bannerThe Black Hawk College Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA) Western Equestrian Team was the high point team Oct. 27 and Oct. 28 at the IHSA Western Horse Show at the college’s East Campus.

Over the two days, 37 BHC students competed against riders from Augustana College, Illinois State University, Iowa State University, Northern Illinois University, Truman State University, the University of Wisconsin – Platteville and Western Illinois University.

Black Hawk College currently leads the region with 126 points. Iowa State is second with 98 points.

The BHC riders not only competed but also hosted the shows. Students prepared the facility, announced the show, prepared and cared for the horses in the show, and assisted the judge as ring stewards.
