AUBURN--The Auburn equestrian team plays host to Baylor on Saturday at 1 p.m., CT, and to Oklahoma State on Sunday at 9 a.m., CT, at the Auburn Equestrian Center. Admission is free.

The Tigers are 6-2 on the season with a tough loss against South Carolina last Saturday while Baylor is 4-7 with its last loss coming against Texas A&M. The Tigers defeated the Aggies 11-9 on Feb. 2, 2008.

"Baylor is a newer program that is developing fast," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "They are well-coached and can ride with anybody."

Oklahoma State comes in as one of the hottest teams in the country. The Cowgirls are 8-0 on the season, defeating Baylor twice.

"Oklahoma State is the team to beat," said Williams. "They are undefeated and continue to get better especially in Western."

Riding for the Tigers in Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat are Chelsea Anheuser, Ali Loprete, Coburn Park, Jenny Reinhart and Rebecca Rifkin with Courtney Schafer on exhibition. Riding in Hunt Seat Equitation over Fences are Jessica Braswell, Katie Breedlove, Elise Fraza, Dottie Grubb and Anna Schierholz with Rebecca Rifkin on exhibition.



Riding for the Tigers in Western Horsemanship are Amy Bohan, Bailey Dymond, Jessica Jones, Kylie Miller and Avery Sams with Mary Casey on exhibition. Riding in Reining are Ashton Fairey, Julie Gibbes, Lyndsey Jordan, Paige Monfore and Kimberly Tidwell.

"Our Hunt Seat and Reiners need to keep doing what they have been doing, and we need to get better rides in Horsemanship," said Williams. "We can win if we do those things, and we are also glad to have these two meets at home."
