LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- The New Mexico State Equestrian team will open up the 2012 spring season with a trip to Martin, Tennessee. The Aggies will take on Tennessee-Martin and Kansas State on Friday, Jan. 27.
The match ups will take place at the Ned McWherter Agricultural Pavilion beginning at 9 a.m. (ET). The Aggies are currently 5-3 on the season and have won its last three competitions.
"I think we are really going to have to step up this weekend because we haven't had much time to prepare," head coach Audrey Buck said. "With no being able to practice still school started again and to learn all of the material for the weekend. We need to make sure we start this semester the same way we finished the fall semester."
Competing on the Western side will be Chelsea Campbell, Clarissa Edgerton, Jessica Woolsey, Lauren DeVoe, Megan Gould and Stefanie Story in Horsemanship, while the Reining team will consist of Andrea Allen, Campbell, Marissa Bartmann, Story and Tara Wilson.
