Scenes from Equestrian Team’s Standout Season

The Lafayette College Equestrian Team finished the 2010 season with a good deal of success. The team placed first in its regional competition and 10th in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association’s national tournament. Erin Duggan ’13 (Oradell, N.J.), Danielle Miranda ’12 (Mendham, N.J.), and Michela Torchio ’12 (Redding, Conn.) all placed in the top 10 in individual events at nationals.

Members of the equestrian team also are active in the local community. Many students volunteer through the Equi-librium program, which provides horse-assisted therapy for handicapped children. During the College’s Lafapalooza day of service, team members gave miniature horse rides to children with cancer. Team captain Kristen Greaney ’10 (Upper Black Eddy, Pa.) took the photos below.
