Auburn, Ala. -
The top-ranked Auburn equestrian team picked up its third loss of the season after falling, 12-6, to No. 5 South Carolina on Saturday in Blythewood, S.C. The Tigers fell to 7-3, while the Gamecocks improved to 5-5 on the season.
“We just made too many mistakes,” Auburn head coach Greg Williams said. “We’ll just have to pick it up and get back to some drills in practice as we get closer toward SECs and nationals.”
