The Bulldogs’ Ali Tritschler scored the final point in Fences to take the event, 3-2, before winning Flat, 3-2, where Tritschler was named the MOP. The Bulldogs controlled the Western arena, sweeping Horsemanship, 5-0, while also winning Reining, 4-1. Bailey Anderson led the way for the Horsemanship squad with a 75.5 to earn MOP honors.
