Email Sent out to the Student Body

Dear College Community,

Delaware Valley College has been invited to represent the United States at an Intercollegiate International World Equestrian Cup (IWEC). Four students compete on each team and earn points for their team based on their performance in show jumping, dressage, and a written horse knowledge examination. This year the competition will take place in Holland, Europe from May 28th through June 1st.

The Equine Studies Program hosted tryouts to select the team of four riders best suited to represent the United States in the IWEC. Riders where evaluated by a panel of Equine Studies faculty members on their dressage, show jumping, and equine knowledge. The Equine Studies Program is fortune to have numerous athletic and talented horses to provide a means for testing riders in preparation for competing in Europe. The judging panel was impressed by the caliber of riders and their ability to make the horses perform, which made it difficult to choose just four students to represent Delaware Valley College. We encourage those students who did not make the team this year to tryout again next year.

Please congratulate the following students on their appointment to the DVC International Horse Show Team:

Sara Gumbiner (That's ME!!!!!) :D

Kaitlyn McLaughlin

Devan McNamera

Chantal Plank
