After a long day of competition on Saturday, the Albion stock seat riders returned on Sunday, November 22, to the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center to co-host a double header show with Adrian College, Hillsdale College, and Central Michigan University.
Members of the Albion hunt seat and dressage teams came out to lend lots of help with the show. Senior Camille Sawicki (Jenison / Jenison) brought home the win in both of her Intermediate II classes. Brooke Viele (Midland / Herbert Henry Dow) won second place in Reining and first place in Open. Sophomore Danielle Townsend (Springport / Springport) won first and second places in her Novice classes.
Second place finishers of the day also included team co-captain Allison Voorhess (Mount Clemons / Lutheran North) in Advanced, Molly Brueggeman (Vero Beach, Fla. / Indian River) in Open, Jourdan Tonti (Livonia / Livonia Churchill) in Intermediate II, and Phillip Voglewede (Oxford, Ind. / Benton Central) in Walk-Trot.
The Albion team rode away as reserve champions during the morning show, and they won fourth place for the afternoon show. Many Albion riders also qualified for Regionals, including Townsend, Sawicki, Kate Sears (Ann Arbor / Ann Arbor-Huron), and Ashley Shepard (Eaton Rapids / Olivet).
The next stock seat competition will be at the end of winter break on January 17 hosted by Michigan State University.
