No. 8 Gamecocks Travel to No. 1 Auburn on Saturday

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The No. 8 University of South Carolina equestrian team wraps up its regular season with a trip to No. 1 Auburn on Saturday. The meet is set to get underway at Noon ET at the Auburn University Equestrian Center. 

Boo’s Bits

“We’re excited to be finally headed to Auburn this weekend. I wish we hadn’t had to postpone this meet but a false positive on our end caused the postponement. I’m just happy it was a false positive and we were able to reschedule for this weekend. Auburn being the number one team in the country and undefeated is a tall order for our team, but they have been practicing very hard and are prepared to ride their best. It should be a great meet and we are looking forward to the challenge.”
