QUOTING HEAD COACH Boo Major
“Today I learned that our riders do well in the heat. It was pretty hot and humid today and our horses did really well and our girls do really well. We did pretty well today. Overall I thought our girls concentrated on the riding. I thought we had good warmups, there for our girls had a good opportunity to get in there and get the job done. We’ve got a few things that we’ve got to work on, you always do, but it was a great start.”
