FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

There's a new national champion on Fort Hood, but something about the winner is different. For the first time ever the winner of the National Cavalry Competition is a woman.

"I was the overall champion, I took home the championship for Fort Hood," Sgt. Dominique Greeley said.

Sgt. Greeley competed in the level three which is the most competitive and for only the most advanced riders. Sgt. Greeley competed in five different events before winning the title.

"I competed in Military Horsemanship, Mounted Pistols, Mounted Sabers, Combat Horsemanship and Jumping," Greeley said.

The Oklahoma-based competition took place on Sept. 29th and 30th and while it was the third competition Sgt. Greeley was a part of, she said it was by far the most memorable.

"It's representative of what we do here at the Horse Detachment. We represent the history of, you know, the old cavalry and it's very meaningful and impactful that I got to be a part of that history and making new history as being one of the first females to ever win that," Sgt. Greeley added.

While a female winning the championship was impressive to most, Sgt. Greeley said it wasn't even on her mind.

"The fact that I was a female was only a second thought to me. I was just trying to help out my team and do everything I could for them," Sgt. Greeley said.

And while Sgt. Greeley said she will not be able to defend her title at next years event, she will be watching.

"I'll actually be in Korea so I'll be watching closely on the Facebook page and wishing my team luck." Greeley said.
