The Oklahoma State equestrian team fell to No. 1 Auburn and No. 10 Georgia in back-to-back meets on the road Friday and Saturday.

The Cowgirls dropped a 12-7 meet to the Tigers before falling to the Bulldogs 13-6.

In the first meet, the Cowgirls (1-2) faced a top-three team for the third consecutive time this season. The Tigers (4-0) swept OSU on the flat along with a 3-2 victory in horsemanship to start the meet. The Cowgirls fought back, trailing only 9-6 after handing Auburn its first loss of the season in reining.

The Cowgirls were unable to complete the comeback after the Tigers took fences 3-2 to finish off OSU.

The next day, the Cowgirls traveled nearly three hours east to face No. 10 Georgia. The Bulldogs (1-2) earned their first victory of the season against the Cowgirls. Georgia swept OSU in fences and never trailed afterward. The Bulldogs finished with a victory against the Cowgirls after taking horsemanship, reining and on the flat 3-2.

The Cowgirls will have two weeks to rejuvenate before their next meet against TCU on the road.
