The UA Ranch Horse Team brought home the ASHA DII National Championship from Sweetwater, Texas, last on April 22. 

The team posted a strong victory against schools from Texas, Wyoming and Tennessee and led the second place team 230 points to 202 points. In addition, the team obtained eight individual Top 10 class finishes and two individual Top 10 high point finishes (individual awards included Division I and Division II competitors).

This was the ultimate goal for the team for the 2016-17 season, and they achieved it. For a young team only in its third semester as a student organization, this is an incredible achievement. We are proud Razorbacks!
