The equestrian team at Hood recently had an event at Goucher on Oct. 6, called UMBC IHSA. IHSA stands for Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association. The association promotes riders at all skill levels in competitions. Hannah Pause loves the equestrian team because they are all super close with each other, so that makes them perform better as a team and individually. Pause said one of the main reasons she loves equestrian so much is the friendships she has formed from it. Also, she says equestrian is a great stress reliever from school and loves to ride different horses. The next equestrian meet is Oct. 20 at Goucher College. Then, Nov. 4 the George Mason/George Washington meet will be at River Chase Farm.
