We want to congratulate Abby Johnston for being a total rock star and placing 18th overall out of 897 contestants in the Horse Judging Evaluation Contest at Tarleton State University, as well as the Horse Judging Evaluation Team for placing 10th overall.

Also at Tarleton University Contest the Veterinary Science Team placed sixth out of 266 Teams.
