Carey Spurs on to IHSA Stock Seat Nationals (May 3-4, 2014)
The reigning (and “reining”) high point rider of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Assocation’s Region 4 represents their school as an individual at the IHSA National Championships, and this year it was junior Morgan Carey (Hemlock/Saint Charles Community) who earned this honor.
Carey traveled with stock seat team coach Denise Webber to Harrisburg, PA in order to compete on May 3 and 4 in the AQHA High Point Rider Rail and Reining divisions. Although she finished out of reach of the ribbons, her respectable 13th placing was nothing short of impressive when pitted against the best reining riders at the college level in the country. Carey left Harrisburg after her second trip to Nationals with her head held high and more experience under her belt.
After qualifying to compete at Nationals, Carey was named Albion’s stock seat team MVP, winning the Margaret Sindt Western Horsemanship Award, a perpetual trophy that was presented at the annual equestrian awards banquet.
