Christina Giacomini ‘12, Jessica Middleberg ‘14 and Allie Veach ‘14 represented Wilson, accumulating enough points over the past year in order to qualify for this show.
Giacomini showed in both Intermediate Equitation Over Fences and On the Flat. Veach showed in Walk-Trot-Canter. Middleberg showed in Walk-Trot.
"Coming into Intercollegiate Horse Show Association, I was really nervous, and did not expect to get as far as I did with it being my first year on the team," says Middleberg.
After the initial round of riding, judges call back in the best riders of each category to determine placing.
Giacomini was called back into her class and received both fifth and sixth place in her classes.
Middleberg places first
Veach was not called back in for her class. Middleberg was called back in during her class and placed first, qualifying for the Zone Competition.
"To be able to share this moment with the people who have supported me throughout this entire year, was one of the most special moments in my life," Middleberg said afterwards.
Middleberg shows against the other regions who qualified to the Zone. Some other schools include Kutztown University, Arcadia University and Lafayette College. The Zone Competition is held on Sun, April 1, at Delaware Valley College in Doylestown, Pa.
