Becker's Equestrian Team traveled to Mount Holyoke College for the Zone One Equitation Finals on April 4. To get to Zones, a rider must accumulate a certain number of points in their division to ride at the regionals competition and then place in the top two in their class. Junior Kirby Kojabashian won her class at Regionals and qualified for 2015 Zone One Finals.
Kojabashian competed in novice fences with whole Becker College equestrian team there to support her. After a stunning course and no further testing, Kojabashian received a first place ribbon and became Becker College's first rider to ever qualify for National Finals.
Congratulations to Kirby Kojabashian on being the Zone One Novice Equitation Over Fences Champion and for qualifying for the 2015 IHSA National Equitation Finals hosted at the Eastern States Exposition on April 30.
