2 Clark County School Equestrian Teams Headed to State

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 -- 5:59 AM


(Press Release) — The Wisconsin Interscholastic Horsemanship Association (WIHA) District 6 regional competition was held at the Wood County Fairgrounds October 2nd and 3rd where school equestrian teams from all across northeast Wisconsin came to compete in a series of standardized classes consisting of showmanship (showing in a pattern in hand), equitation (showing in a riding pattern), reinsmanship (showing in a pattern
driving a cart), and speed events (barrels, poles, etc).

Due to last year’s WIHA competition being cancelled, Brooke Magnus (second from left in photo) from Neillsville, was able to compete as a “super senior”. Brooke, now a freshman at UW Stevens Point was proud to represent Neillsville by winning the division D (1-2 riders) competition riding both of her horses Zippos Classic Lad (“Jojo”), and Only Cowboys Invited (“Mac”).  Brooke competed against teams from Marinnette and Suring. This is Brooke’s 4th year
winning the division D competition and representing Neillsville at the state WIHA competition.

Granton Area School’s equestrian team competed in division C (3-5 riders) and was represented by Abby Schoessow (far left in photo) (10th grade) riding RU Ready for This (“Bubba”), Charlotte Hanna (far right in photo) (8th grade) riding My Sweet Impulse (“Buddy”), and Grace Verhalen (second from right in photo) (8th grade) riding SSS You Wish You Would Have (“Emma”). Granton competed against teams from DC Everest, Peshtigo and Coleman. The Granton Equestrian Team & Club was established in 2018 to promote horsemanship education for all students in grades 6 through 12. This is Granton’s third year to compete in the WIHA regional competition,
winning reserve champion in 2018, and winning grand champion in both 2019 and 2021.

Both Neillsville and Granton will represent their schools at the state WIHA competition in Madison from October 29-31st.
