COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina equestrian team will join Gamecock fans at Colonial Life Arena on Saturday prior to the men's basketball game against Arkansas in the seventh annual Spurs & Saddles event.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m., Gamecock fans will get the chance to meet and take photos with the riders and horses by the fountain outside of Colonial Life Arena. The event will end at 1:30 p.m., the scheduled start time for the basketball game. Spurs & Saddles is ideal for families with children as well as anyone wishing to stop by to support the top-ranked equestrian team.

There is no charge to participate in the event, and fans will be able to have their picture taken with the riders and horses. The athletics department will have a photographer outside at the event with the team that will be taking photos, and fans will be able to pose for photos with the team and horses, and then download the photos from GamecocksOnline.com beginning on Thursday. There will be team posters available for free, and fans will be able to get the posters autographed.

The Gamecock equestrian team is ranked No. 1 in the country. The Gamecocks return to One Wood Farm in Blythewood on Feb. 2 when they host Georgia at 1 p.m. Admission to all Gamecock equestrian meets are free.
