Lexington, Ky. – Transylvania eventing team sophomores Emma Masur and Lauren Nunn finished the 2017-2018 show season ranked third and fifth respectively as riders within the USEA Intercollegiate division.
The rankings are determined by a point system applied to intercollegiate competitions across the country. Competitions are host to riders representing schools of all kinds and sizes, including Division I schools such as University of Georgia and Auburn University and small liberal arts schools like Transylvania. Transylvania's competition schedule has included Chattahoochee Hills (GA), Poplar Place Farms (GA), Virginia Equestrian Center, and River Glen (TN) Horse Trials.
Masur, a sophomore from Cincinnati, Ohio (Walnut Hills HS) spent the show season doing incredibly well in the BN division throughout the year with a new lease horse, Brody, an Irish Sport Horse. "I loved the experience of riding on the Transy team," said Masur. "It was awesome getting to compete at different venues that I had never been to before, especially the ones that were farther away. Brodie was always really dependable and super focused on his job, which was definitely one of the greatest contributing factors to our success last season. I'm excited to start riding and competing again soon with the team."
These rankings reflect a first show season spent with a new horse for Nunn, a sophomore from Evansville, Indiana (North HS), at the BN and Novice levels. She began eventing with her horse, Flynn, just in the summer of 2016, and previous to that was a Western rider. "Last year's season was super fun, especially toward the end of the year," stated Nunn. "I feel so much closer to my teammates and am excited to show with them again in 2018. Flynn and I improved a lot towards the end of last year and I was really proud to make it into the year-end rankings."
Transylvania eventing will resume their schedule on March 22 at the Poplar Place Horse Farm Trials. That competition will be held in Hamilton, Georgia.
