EHS equestrians still finding success

Enumclaw is cementing its best “large school” equestrian team title in the state.

Enumclaw High equestrians kicked off the 2018 season with two successful meets, will be looking for more during competition at the end of this month and have their eyes set on the state meet in May.

The squad has become familiar with success, having brought home the high-point trophy from last year’s state gathering, meaning EHS was the best “large school” equestrian team in Washington.

During the season’s second meet, staged March 22-25 in Spanaway, Enumclaw riders won five events, took second in five more and placed third eight times.

The team began the season in mid-February with a meet at the Grays Harbor Fairgrounds in Elma. The third meet of the regular season will bring a return trip to Elma April 26-29. The state meet will again be at the Grant County Fairgrounds in Moses Lake.

The sport is governed by Washington High School Equestrian Teams and the state is divided into seven districts. EHS competes in District 3 against Battle Ground, Camas, Castlerock, Kelso, North Thurston and Woodland.

Equestrian is a club sport at Enumclaw High.
