Sequim equestrian relay team takes first at Tacoma meet

Each Sequim competitor had at least one top-10 placing in individual events. Sequim’s In-Hand Obstacle Relay team took first place and Drill Working Fours team took second, just missing first place by a single point.

In individual events, Anne Meek and Christina Overby each earned four top-five finishes.

Other Sequim equestrian team members include Kat Afton, Matisen Anders, Kyla Gabriel, Justine Roads, Eilena Sharpe and Devyn Vining.
