NEO Sweeps Awards at Home Equestrian Show

Miami, Okla. – Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018 ¬- The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) Equestrian Team took High-Point Team on both Saturday and Sunday at the NEO A&M Intercollegiate Western Horse Show, held on Feb 17 and 18. The team is ranked number one in the region, with the final show of the season to take place on March 3 and the regional competition will be on March 4 at Missouri State University.


The weekend proved successful for Open Division riders, as Edson Varela claimed High Point Rider and Ashley Aden claimed Reserve High Point Rider on both days. Varela earned his finish through strong Open Division riding and placing first each day, while Aden had strong finishes in the Open Division, but excelled in Reining.
