The Cornell equestrian team finished its season strong last week at Nationals by clinching several Top-10 places and establishing itself among the best in the country.

This season, the Cornell women secured victories on multiple levels throughout its duration and edged closer than ever before to qualifying to nationals as a team. Albeit narrowly missing the win — and the team qualification to nationals — by just three points at Zones, the Red still took a historic step forward. Additionally, despite the fact that the Red was not able to take its complete fleet to Nationals, the squad still had reason to celebrate in qualifying four riders. Backed by the entire squad, the selected women came up big with a solid performance to polish off a successful season.
