K-State equestrian takes on Oklahoma State


The No. 4 K-State equestrian team will head to Stillwater, Okla. to take on Big 12 rival No. 7 Oklahoma State this weekend. The Wildcats are coming off a spring season opening victory over South Dakota State, 10-9.

The Wildcats will send four riders to participate in both Equitation Over Fences and Equitation on the Flat, including senior captain Rachel Webster. Competing for the Western team will be the same riders that did two weeks ago against South Dakota State. Those riders will be fellow senior Cat Avolese, junior Madison Wayda and freshman Henley Adkins.

During the fall season, the Wildcats defeated the Cowboys 11-9.

“This is a huge weekend for us and the last regular season road meet we have this year,” said head coach Casie Maxwell, according to K-State Sports. “We have been focusing on taking things one day at a time and one competition at a time and our team is really responding well. OSU has a great team with a lot of depth, so to beat them at their place we are really going to need to bring our A-game.”

The Wildcats will make their spring season home debut on Feb. 28, when they face off against the No. 2 Baylor Bears.
