Gillian is a member of the class of 2020 in the College of Arts and Sciences. She has been riding since she was 8 years old in her hometown of Miami, FL. Up until 3 years ago she had been riding and competing at schooling shows in the equitation and hunter rings. When she started leasing her current horse, Big Boy, she switched to jumpers. Now that she has joined BUET she is excited to get back into the show ring and represent her team.
After the first four shows of the season, Boston University Equestrian Team is leading the Region in points. At their first show, the team came in third.
At the Wheaton/Curry/Tufts show, the team earned high point team despite very poor weather conditions! New rider Leal Morehouse was high point rider, earning two blue ribbons in Intermediate flat and fences. Congratulations Leal!
At the Boston University show, the team was tied with Northeastern for high point team. The judge had respective captains from each team answer a few horse related questions to decide a winner. In the end Carly Corbacho, the representative for the Boston University Equestrian Team, provided the most accurate answers and Boston University earned high point team once again!
