The No. 3 Auburn equestrian team had five riders receive All-American honors for the 2011-12 season.

Honorable Mentions were given to sophomore Jennifer Waxman in Equitation over Fences, freshman Jennifer Delman in Equitation on the Flat, Roper in Horsemanship and sophomore Cheyenne Cracraft in Reining.
“I am so proud of these girls’ accomplishments,” Auburn head coach Greg Williams said. “It’s so hard to earn an honor like that, and so few people ever can claim one. I know they will cherish the title for years.”
