Eagles Equestrian Opens Season with Several First Place Ribbons
The Indian Creek Equestrian Team competed in its first show of the year on Sunday, September 24, at Oatland Stables in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Four Varsity and two Junior Varsity riders competed in three classes each. A class may have between 12 and 17 riders, and the judge awards first through sixth place.
