The No. 3 Texas A&M equestrian team hits the road for the first time this season as it heads to No. 6 TCU for a 10 a.m. meet Friday at Turning Point Ranch in Springtown, Texas.

“The first road trip is always fun as it gives the girls a chance to be together and bond,” head coach Tana McKay said. “We are coming off a very good season-opening win, and now we have another tough test ahead of us this weekend. It is always tough to compete on the road, but the girls have prepared very well this week in practice.”

The Aggies (1-0) are coming off a 12-5 victory against then-No. 4 Oklahoma State last Friday. Texas A&M swept the Most Outstanding Player (MOP) honors as Caroline Dance was named the Equitation over Fences and Equitation on the Flat MOP.

Alex Albright earned Horsemanship MOP honors and Darby Gardner was named the Reining MOP for the first time in her career.

Longtime Big 12 foes, Texas A&M and TCU squared off twice last season with the Aggies winning in College Station, 16-3, and TCU winning in Springtown, 11-8. Friday’s matchup is the 13th meet in series history as Texas A&M holds a 9-3 record.
