AUBURN--The Auburn equestrian team travels to Fresno, Calif., to face Fresno State Saturday and New Mexico State Sunday.

"We don't know much about Fresno State's horses and riders," said Auburn head coach Greg Williams. "We are looking forward to traveling, but our expecting stiff competition from both teams."

The Tigers are 8-2 on the season with their last wins coming against Baylor and Oklahoma State. The Bulldogs are 2-3 on the season with their last loss coming against Baylor, whom Auburn defeated 10-7 on Feb. 16.

"Fresno State is a good team," said Williams. "They have the advantage of being at home and knowing the horses."

New Mexico State is 4-2 on the season with its last lost coming against South Carolina. South Carolina is the only team that has defeated Auburn this spring.

"New Mexico State is a good team as well," said Williams. "Both teams are well-balanced."

Riding for the Tigers against Fresno State in Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat are Chelsea Anheuser, Katie Breedlove, Coburn Park and Rebecca Rifkin. Riding in Hunt Seat Equitation over Fences are Jessica Braswell, Dottie Grubb, Ali Loprete and Anna Schierholz.
