UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA AT CROOKSTON HOSTS MORE THAN A HORSE SHOW
Crookston, MN - The University of Minnesota at Crookston tried something
new to unite the region at the final Zone 9, Region 3 hunter seat show of
the 2009 fall season.
On November 8, during the second day of competing, all teams were asked
to join in on a dance party held in the arena, this after the jumping course
was taken down for the day.
The dance party was to help relieve any stress or tension from
competition, as well as bring the teams together for some fun off of the
horse while still in the area.
Leslie Sauter, a junior from South Dakota State University said, “We get
so used to the routine of sitting and cheering with our teams that we
sometimes forget we are more than just individual teams. We make up a
region that should have fun together as well as compete with each other."
'Party in the USA' by Miley Cyrus started over the sound system and
within moments the arena was flooded with a variety of members from
Zone 9, Region 3 teams to join in on the dance.
