Like the Horsemanship competition, the Reining competition was also a tight match, as the Aggies pulled it out by a score of 292.5 and 3 to the Bulldogs’ 287 and 1. Senior Keesa Luers scored the most for the Maroon and White with 76.
The Aggies won the Western event over the Bulldogs by a final of 662-7 to 649-2. With this, the total raw score for the meet was 1458-1424 in favor of the Maroon and White. A&M also had a clean sweep, as it won all four of the day’s events.
In both meets this season, A&M has scored double-digit points and outscored both opponents by a combined score of 29-9.
