LEXINGTON, Ky. – Brown University equestrian sophomore Yinan Liu and junior Anna Seto represented the Bears at the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association National Championships at The Kentucky Horse Park from Thursday to Friday.
Liu, a native of Shanghai, China, led the Bears with a fourth-place finish in Individual Walk-Trot Equitation on Friday.
A native of Barrington, R.I., Seto competed in Individual Novice Equitation Over Fences on Thursday and did not place.
Each rider finished in the top two of her class at zones to advance to nationals after each came in the top two of her class at regionals to proceed to zones. To qualify for regionals, riders needed to total enough points to "point out" of their respective divisions during the regular season.
Seto and Liu become Brown's first IHSA National qualifiers since Kabisa Baughen '17 (Sarasota, Fla.) competed at nationals in 2014.
