Equestrian Team member competes in nationals

A member of Morehead State’s Equestrian Team recently competed in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association’s (IHSA) national competition, held May 2-5 in Syracuse, New York. 

Freshman Rudy Pohlabeln, a veterinary science major from Edgewood, competed in the individual intermediate western horsemanship class, finishing seventh. He rode Trigger, a horse provided by State University of New York Morrisville. 

“It feels good to be representing the school at such a high level especially being my first year on the team,” he said. “As a freshman, I wasn’t expecting to make it this far, but it also makes it feel like a bigger deal being a freshman.” 

The IHSA has more than 10,000 riders nationwide. Of that number, only 380 qualified for nationals. Pohlabeln has had a successful first year on the team, winning reserve champion at a competition Held in February in Midway and qualifying for nationals after winning reserve champion at the semifinal competition held in Utah in March.
