WWU Western Riders Compete in Ozark Arabian Horse Show

Riders from the William
Woods University Western Club competed in the Ozark Heartland Arabian Classic
Show I in October in Mt. Vernon, Mo. Four riders and four
horses competed at the show, with outstanding results.

Horses of all ages and
training levels attended the show, including WV Majorific (Oliver). Oliver, a
four-year-old half Arabian, is a training project of Erin Springer, a senior at
WWU.
 
Springer has been
working with Oliver since the beginning of the semester and has seen great
strides in his training.
 
“I was really happy
with how Oliver performed over the weekend. He has come so far in his training
and I was very impressed with how well he handled showing in a new
environment.”

with both our students and how our horses performed.”
