Equestrian Scholarship Offered

William Woods University will sponsor a $1,000 renewable scholarship to be awarded at the Midwest Regional Academy Championship Horse Show, Oct. 26 at the Midway Exposition Center in Columbia, Mo. The scholarship will go to the winner of the 14-17 Walk/Trot/Canter Saddle Seat Equitation Championship to assist with expenses to attend William Woods.

The school’s on-campus stable complex includes 106 large box stalls in four barns; each barn containing its own wash racks and tack rooms.
