The Oklahoma State equestrian team dropped its first conference meet of the season Saturday, falling to top-ranked Baylor 15-4 in Waco, Texas.
In their first meet after taking over the No. 1 spot in the National Collegiate Equestrian Association polls, the Bears promptly handed No. 4 OSU its most lopsided loss in program history.
The meet opened with equitation over fences and reining. Baylor (9-2 overall, 3-1 Big 12) struck first, scoring four points in fences and never relinquished the lead.
The Cowgirls (4-2, 2-1) trailed 7-3 at the halftime break and never recovered. OSU managed only a point and a tie between equitation on the flat and horsemanship.
All American Jorden Davis netted an event-high 86 on the flat, but tied in her head-to-head with Baylor’s Savannah Jenkins and two other Baylor riders.
Freshman Hannah Mitchell extended her head-to-head win streak to five with a 68-65 victory against Charlotte Green in reining. Mitchell was awarded Most Outstanding Performer honors for her efforts.
The Cowgirls will have a week to regroup before they head off to Brookings, South Dakota, for a meet with South Dakota State at 10 a.m. Saturday.
