In their previous encounter earlier in the fall season, TCU secured a 14-6 victory over Baylor, winning all events outside of Fences and achieving a 5-0 sweep in Horsemanship.

The Frogs faced a challenging start, tying In Fences 2-2. Ella Bostwick and Ashleigh Scully both earned points for the Frogs. Fences are judged on the rider’s ability to maintain position, consistency from jump to jump and the number of strides taken. Ella Bostwick earned Most Outstanding Performer, scoring 89 on Donny.

Ella Bostwick and Sydney Berube both earned points for TCU in Flat, scoring 87 and 84, respectively. However this was not enough as Baylor emerged victorious in the other three matchups. Flat is an event where the riders must travel in a pattern in a 40 x 20 meter arena and is judged on how well the riders maintains smoothness, posture and the accuracy of each movement.

Where TCU consistently excels each week is Horsemanship. Shae Graham, Mattie Dukes, Giorgia Medows and Jessica McAllister all earned points for the Frogs, securing a 4-1 victory. Giorgia Medows was recognized as the Most Outstanding Performer, scoring 74.5 riding Zeke.

TCU also demonstrated strength in Reining. Kaylene Cunningham, Giorgia Medows, Jessica McAllister and Mattie Dukes all earned points for the Frogs, achieving a 4-1 victory. In Reining, riders are evaluated on a predetermined set of maneuvers, including flying lead changes, spins and stops. All riders begin with a base score 70. Giorgia Medows outperformed Bella Hehr 71.5 to 70 riding Raymond, earning the title of Most Outstanding Performer.

The Frogs hold an all-time record of 13-12 against the Mustangs. In their most recent encounter, which was the first match of the fall season, TCU emerged victorious with a 12-6 win.
