Texas A &M Equestrian (Waco, TX) 2017 NCEA Champions
The Texas A&M Aggies had a stellar 2017 season, winning the coveted National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) National Championships. The win was the 12th in the program’s history and the first since 2012. NCEA’s Coach of the Year, Tana Mckay, praises her team’s clutch performance. “It was a team effort in and out of the arena.” Three of the Texas A&M riders were named NCEA Most Outstanding Players of the Year. Avery Ellis was named the Horsemanship Most Outstanding Player, while Rebekah Chenelle was awarded the Equitation Most Outstanding Player with a 4-0 record at the Championships. Western rider Sarah McEntire won the Most Outstanding Player for Reining. Seeded fifth entering the National Championship competition, the Texas A&M Team had all of the stars align to win four meets in three days. We congratulate all of these outstanding collegiate equestrians.
