This Halloween weekend was the first Western Show of the ’17-18 season. The show was a doubleheader on Saturday 10/18, held at Cal Poly Pomona. The show was hosted by Cal Poly Pomona and Mt Sac, and was appropriately Halloween themed. Bearing the heat, the show was a great success. UCSD competed against Cal Poly Pomona, Mt Sac, U of A, and UCLA’s new Western Team. Samantha Watts, competing in the Novice division, came away with a third in the morning and a first in the afternoon. Overall, it was a great first show: good to be back in the saddle in the show ring with enough time to gear up for the upcoming show in November.
