IDA Nationals Caps Successful Season for Albion Dressage

IDA Nationals Caps Successful Season for Albion Dressage (April 27-28, 2013)
Riders and teams from all over the country that compete within the Intercollegiate Dressage Association converged at Mount Holyoke University in South Hadley, Mass., on April 27-28 for the IDA National Championships. This year Albion College qualified to send a team of four riders, with three of those riders also competing as individuals.
At the end of the first day of competition, the team standings put Albion College into the top ten with a respectable ninth place finish.
Individual competition commenced on the second day, and Albion riders again proved their ability to perform under pressure. Team captain and sophomore Paige Gustafson (Dexter/Dexter) came out with a ninth place finish in First Level. Senior Ruthie Doering (Cadillac/Cadillac) secured seventh place in Lower Training Level, and first year rider Maggie-Mae White (South Lyon) pulled off a fourth place in Introductory Level.
The Albion College dressage team had dedicated their season to former teammate and classmate Samantha Christine Green, who passed away suddenly in June 2012. Her memory certainly gave the team a strong reason to show their Briton strength.
