The DVCET hunt seat team took a team of eight riders and two individuals to compete at the Invitational Holiday Tournament of Champions.  Invitations to this show are quite prestigious and go out to the current top schools in the IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association).  The show was held at Centenary College in Hackettstown, NJ on December 5th.   DVC ended up 9th in the placings out of the 28 elite teams at the show.  We also earned two "call backs" for the Medal round where seniors and captains Sara Gumbiner and Terence Pruty made the cut from 36 to 18 to be able to compete for DVC over fences.

Sara Gumbiner- Medal finalist
