It’s hard to beat a good team twice.

The No. 6 Oklahoma State equestrian team beat No. 4 Kansas State 13-6

The Cowgirls opened its 2013 season to KSU, but fell short of a win.

The Wildcats defeated OSU 11-9 in Manhattan, Kan., losing in equitation, equitation over fences and reining.

But this time the Wildcats were stepping into the Cowgirls home turf.

Senior Samantha Harrison won her third straight Most Outstanding Performer award in an 87-83 victory in equitation over fences. The cowgirls went on to win the event 4-1 against the Wildcats.

Freshman Jorden Davis helped OSU to win not only in equitation over fences, but also helped to tie the Cowgirls with KSU in equitation. Davis continued to go undefeated with an 83-78 win. Senior Ali Rose also helped to tie with Kansas State with her 87-81 win. Harrison tied with a KSU rider to keep the score even, while seniors Samantha Elser and Andrea Robbins both fell to Wildcat riders.

Junior Katy Krshka took home two MOP awards and won in both reining and horsemanship. Sophomore Erin Willoughby, senior Jenna Blumer, sophomore Justin Peters and Krshka all helped reining to a 4-1 victory over Kansas State.

Horsemanship also won with the help of Krshka, junior Lindsey McMullen and sophomore Ty Paris.

OSU will take on Texas Christian University next in Fort Worth, Texas on Feb. 22 at 11 a.m.
