After some rough riding on the road, K-State equestrian returns home to Timbercreek Stables for the first time since early November to face No. 2-nationally ranked TCU today.

“We have been away from here (Manhattan) for awhile, so it will be a nice change to have the entire team involved and be back in home territory,” head coach Casie Maxwell said to K-State Sports.

The Wildcats are looking to hand TCU a loss after losing 13-5 in Fort Worth, Texas earlier this season. In addition, the K-State riders are hoping to break a losing streak that’s lasted seven matches. However, the Wildcats are undefeated at home this season with a 5-0 record.

The match is scheduled for 10 a.m. today at Timbercreek Stables.
