[su_spacer size=”20″] After a four-week hiatus, Georgia Equestrian returns to action on Friday as they travel to Auburn to take on the No. 4 Tigers.  The Bulldogs enter competition with a 4-0 record, including a 1-0 mark in the Southeastern Conference.  Auburn is currently 4-1 and 1-1 in SEC play.


“We are very excited and prepared to be heading on the road to Auburn,” head coach Meghan Boenig said. “We expect a great competition.  We have been seeing phenomenal things out of our athletes these past few weeks as they have been preparing, particularly riding a variety of horses.  We are exciting to compete against this great rival.”


Georgia owns a 17-6 overall record against Auburn in regular season competition.  During the 2014-15 season Georgia defeated Auburn in all four meetings, including two during the regular season and two in the post season.  The Bulldogs first defeated the Tigers at home in Bishop 13-6 before traveling to Auburn and upsetting the Tigers 10-9.  Georgia then knocked off Auburn in the first round of the SEC Championship before going on to beat Texas A&M for the title.  The Bulldogs and Tigers met again in the semifinal round of the 2015 National Championship where Georgia defeated Auburn 10-6.


In their last competition on Oct. 16, Georgia defeated then-ranked No. 5 Oklahoma State 14-6 at the UGA Equestrian Complex in Bishop.  Liza Finsness (Equitation on the Flat), Rachel Kolb (Horsemanship), Meg O’Mara (Equitation Over Fences), and Graysen Stroud (Reining) earned MVP honors against Oklahoma State.
