COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina head coach Boo Duncan has announced the signing of Sarah Tredennick of Littleton, Colo., to the Gamecock equestrian program for the 2008-09 season.

Tredennick represented the United States in the 2004 and 2006 World Equestrian Friendship Games in Hereford, Germany. She has qualified for and competed in the USEF, USET, Prix de States and Maclay Finals from 2005 to 2007, and she placed in the Maclay Finals from 2004 to 2007. Tredennick has won and placed in the Colorado Medal Finals from 2004 to 2007 and finished fifth individually at the North American Young Rider Jumper Championships in 2007.

“Sarah has a well rounded background in equitation, hunters and jumpers,” Duncan said. “She is a well-seasoned competitor and really caught my eye a couple of years ago at Medal finals when she rode a really green horse. She kept a smile on her face the whole time the worried horse was going around. She knew she was out of the running to win the finals but kept persevering so the horse would gain valuable experience. After watching that round, I have kept my eye on her and know that she is the type rider I want to have on my team.”

Tredennick finished nationally for Large Green Pony Hunters and won the 2002 and 2003 MASCUP Pony Jumper Championships. Tredennick was also named the 2002 Reserve Champion for Large Green Pony Hunters at the Pony Finals.

Tredennick attends the Kent School, and hopes to major in psychology and criminology. She is trained by Mindy Darst and is the daughter of Page and John Tredennick.
