Day 1 at the 2015 National Collegiate Equestrian Association Championship in Waco, Texas, was a busy one. Horses were unloaded, washed, stalled and fed. The day also gave exhibitors a good chance to reconnect with their competitors on other teams.
The nation’s top-12 teams will vie for the 2015 NCEA National Championship, set to take place April 15-18 at the Extraco Events Center in Waco, Texas.
Beginning with the 2014 championship, the top-12 overall teams (western and hunt seat combined) are invited to compete.
