AUBURN--The Auburn equestrian team opens the spring season against Delaware State Saturday at 1 pm Central at the Auburn Equestrian Center. Admission is free.
The Tigers are 4-1 on the season with their last win coming against Kansas State Nov. 17. Delaware State is 2-1 on the season with its only loss coming against Georgia.
"Delaware State has a strong Hunt Seat team, but their Western team is relatively new," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "Our plan is to shift several of our Western riders around to give us an advantage, but our strength is our Hunt Seat team. Delaware State should be a good challenge before we face a tough opponent in Texas A&M."
Auburn has performed well in all of its meets picking up MVP awards in at least one event in every meet this season.
