The University of Wyoming horse judging team won the collegiate division of the U.S. National Arabian Horse Show in Tulsa, OK, in its first competition of the season Friday, October 25.

“This was the first time UW had ever been to that particular contest,” said team coach Lacey Lindsay. “We made our debut, and the team was awesome.”

Six teams of five members each and 40 individuals competed in the collegiate division.

Results were:

Team

First overall, first in performance, second in halter and third in reasons

Individual

Tanner Sperle, Parker, CO, first in performance, second overall

Mikaela Moore, Ranchester, second in reasons, fourth in performance, ninth in halter, fourth overall

Hannah Jankovsky, Cheyenne, seventh in halter, seventh in reasons, eighth in performance, seventh overall.

Josey Bailey, Moorcroft, fifth in performance

Kaylee Davis, Johnstown, CO, fourth in halter, eighth in reasons, 13th in performance, eighth overall.

Lindsay appreciated Kendra McConnell, Denver and Katie Ogden, Laramie, for their extra help and expertise and also team sponsor Kimes Ranchwear.

The team competes November 16 at the American Quarter Horse Association World Championship in Oklahoma City.

“That’s a bigger contest and generally harder, but I think the burst of energy the team got from this contest will carry over in their confidence level to help us have a pretty good show,” said Lindsay.
