Students Selected for UW-Rf Horsemanship Team

Twenty-nine students have been selected to represent UW-River Falls in its horsemanship team.

According to animal science Associate Professor Larry Kasten, who heads the program, each fall about 70 students try out for two teams, Western and English, and only 29 are selected for the honor.

"To be eligible to try out, a student must be enrolled full time, be a student in good standing, and be a member of the Intercollegiate Horse Association," said Kasten. "Selection by team coaches is based on the students╣ equitation skills and the correct riding and handling of different horses." UW-RF
