[su_spacer size=”20″] Sara Parr (Horsemanship) and Kylee Arbuckle (Equitation on the Flat) have been named the SEC Riders of the Month. This is the first SEC Rider of the Month award for Parr and the third for Arbuckle.
[su_spacer size=”40″] Parr finished the month of February with an unblemished 4-0 record in Horsemanship, with three of her four wins coming against top-five teams. She scored a 77 or better in three of her four competitions.
[su_spacer size=”40″] Her first win was against No. 3 South Carolina with an event high score of 79.5. That score was good enough for the third highest score of SEC competition this year, and the MVP honor. She kept her momentum going, as the next day she picked up the win against Delaware State with an event high score of 82.5. That score was also good enough for the MVP honor, as well as the highest score of SEC competition this year.
[su_spacer size=”40″] The next weekend, she picked up the 71-67 win against No. 4 Auburn before concluding the month with a 77-74.5 win over No. 5 Texas A&M and another MVP honor.


Arbuckle rode to a perfect 4-0 record in Equitation on the Flat, with three of four wins coming against top-5 teams. In each of her wins, she defeated her opponent by at least three points.


She used a 74-67 decision against No. 3 South Carolina. Next she defeated her Delaware State opponent, before riding to an 84-81 victory against No. 4 Auburn on the road. She concluded February against No. 5 Texas A&M with an event-high 82 to outscore her opponent’s score of 79.


Parr, Arbuckle and the Georgia equestrian team will next travel to Fresno, Calif. to take on TCU March 6, followed by Fresno State on March 7. For scoring updates, follow @UGAEquestrian on Twitter.​
