Four divisions of Warhorse and Arabian track participants competed this past Saturday at the Poteet Invitational and each of the four squads came home with championship hardware as first place teams.
“Again we won several divisions despite being short- handed,” stated Head Track Coordinator Lynn Cozby. “We were able to look at new faces in different events as more opportunities were created. And wow, our athletes seized the opportunities. We had a great turn out by parents and they did get to see a show.”
