You may have noticed the change in the blog name and my bio. I recently graduated from USC Aiken and had the choice to end the blog, pass it on to another USC Aiken Eventing member or to continue the blog

School is back in session for the spring semester and the eventing team has begun its winter season! Over winter break some members of the team went on a ride in Hitchcock woods. It was a very cold morning of 35 degrees but we all had a great time! The team then kicked off the show season at the January Full Gallop Recognized HT! And thank you to team member Manon for volunteering as a jump judge! Marissa Collins and Carino-PT-Division-4th place I had a great weekend at my last PT.
A lot has been happening with the USC Aiken eventing team as we wrap up the 2014 year! First we had three members compete at the Full Gallop Schooling HT. Kristen Miller rode her gelding Game On in the Novice A division. The pair finished 7th with only a little xc time to add to their dressage score.
The USC Aiken Eventing Team is continuing to compete. Recently we had members competing at the Jumping Branch Farm Schooling Horse trials in Aiken and the Pine Top Farm Recognized Horse Trials in Thomson Georgia!
