COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

The Texas A&M equestrian team defends its national title as the fourth seed at the NCEA Championships scheduled for April 18-21 at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas, the NCEA Selection Committee announced Wednesday.

The Aggies (11-6) take on fifth-seeded SMU as the new championship format features the top eight teams for the overall champion.

Additionally, the newly expanded NCEA National Championship format includes a team seeded bracket in an NCEA format competition for the four event titles.

Texas A&M earned the No. 1 seed in Equitation over Fences after finishing the regular season with a 14-3 ledger. The Aggies receive a bye in the first round and face the winner of the eight-nine matchup between eight-seeded UT Martin and ninth-seeded Fresno State.
