Taylor Miller got the ride on Blake Vidunas's horse, Times Square, (middle left) however decided to retire on XC when it was made apparent it was not their day . Alumni Christine Ayala and MAC in Vegas (middle right) had a strong start in the Open Training division, but decided to retire on cross country due to the less than ideal footing. We are so proud of the horsemanship our riders displayed and we would like to thank the countless volunteers that were able to make this event happen. Go Hokies!
