FRESNO, Calif. - Junior Western rider Lauren Crivelli had a strong showing at the inaugural Collegiate Horsemanship Challenge at the American Quarter Horse Association World Show in Oklahoma, Okla.
Sixteen of the nation's top collegiate horsemanship riders were invited to compete at the AQHA World Show. Crivelli was selected for her outstanding sophomore year as she was named a 2012 NCEA Honorable Mention All-American.
In the first round of 16 on Wednesday, Crivelli finished tied for first with the highest score of 186. This performance advanced her to the second round of eight riders. In the second round Crivelli finished third with a score of 198, which was good to advance her again to the semifinals.
In the semifinals Crivelli put up a strong performance yet again, scoring a 144. She was just a little bit short from advancing to the final round, but finished in the top four with both her and her coach pleased with how well she did.
"Lauren rode so well these past two days," said western coach Stephanie Reeves. "She really had some beautiful rides and received so many compliments from many people in the horse industry here. I'm so proud of how well she did and the experience she gained from competing here."
