William Woods University’s equestrian studies division recently took home 42 awards from the Missouri Horse Shows Association (MHSA) awards presentation.
Awards won by WWU went to William Woods-owned horses and were based on the number of wins by horses during the 2005 show season at member shows throughout Missouri.
These included such shows at the Missouri State Fair, the St. Louis National Charity Show and the American Royal, as well as shows in many neighboring states. Various equestrian students rode the horses, and awards were won in every concentration offered at the school (dressage, hunter/jumper, western and saddleseat).
