With a new core group competing for the first time and three experienced returners back at the helm, The Dalles Wahtonka equestrian team racked up seven top-11 finishes for their best outcome in the past five years in a three-day Oregon High School Equestrian Team event ending Sunday at the Deschutes County Fair Grounds located in Redmond.

For having so many participants hitting the varsity circuit for the first time in their careers, TDW lead advisor, Marie Cordell, could not be more proud of what she saw transpire in three days of action.

“All the kids did so amazing,” Cordell said. “The best thing was seeing how excited everyone was to compete and the huge smiles on their faces. A lot of hard work and training really paid off.”

Cordell said there were more than a handful of personal bests, but the squad performed its best team events.

In the freestyle fours drill, the quartet of Jacob Richman, Mackenzie Urness, Carsen Cordell and Hannah Simmons locked up third place.

Coach Cordell said there were a few events that TDW had not previously performed, but with having such a deep roster, the drill event was somewhere they excelled.

“It was so exciting to watch those four kids get out there and do their pattern to music in front of all those people,” coach Cordell stated. “The other teams were so excited we had a drill team again.”

Richman, Urness and Carsen Cordell also matched wits for third place in team penning with three pens and six cows for 227.04 points.

Thomas Richman, Morgan Ramirez and Hannah Simmons had one pen and one cow for 76.03.

Richman, one of the more experienced equestrian riders, was tabbed along with newcomers, Ramirez and Simmons, to tally a pen on their third attempt.

“Team Penning was awesome,” coach Cordell said. “We had two teams go in and, out of 24 teams, we got third, if we do that again, we qualify for state. Carsen and Jacob penned last year and, with the addition of Mackenzie, they were great, finishing the night with three pens.”

The Richman boys, Urness and Carsen Cordell racked up a marker of 54.12 for seventh place in Canadian flags.

Urness and Carsen Cordell did not stop there, as they combined for a tally of 29.53 in bi-rangle to slug out 13th place.

Both Richman’s Sara Treichel and Rachel Chamberlin tacked on sixth place for their efforts at in-hand obstacle relay.

“We haven’t had an IHOR team in three years,” coach Cordell said. “It was so nice to compete this year. All the kids did great their first meet. It is really challenging.”

Urness and Carsen Cordell placed 16th in working pairs and Thomas Richman and Treichel added 20th in the same event.

Through it all, TDW scored 63 points.

On the individual side, Jacob Richman secured sixth place in keyhole with a 9.21, and Makenzie Urness added an 11.7 for 16th place.

Carsen Cordell tacked on an 11.36 for fifth place in figure 8, while Urness dropped a 13.68 to finish 26th.

Jacob Richman had 11th place for his try at individual flags with a 17.43, and Treichel motored home in 18.56 for 13th place.

“There are so many kids in these events that getting in the top-10 is really up there,” said the Tribe coach.

In the mini classification, Dufur came away with first place at 43 points, and Sherman reeled off 30 points for second place.

In working rancher, Sherman’s Shayne Holmes scored fourth place, Dufur’s Harley Burgener tabbed eighth and Zach Christiansen tallied ninth place.

Burgener checked in with 15th for her efforts in trail equitation, Christiansen was good for 19th, and Sherman’s Mikkaela Ruise maxed out in 22nd place.

At in-hand trail, Ruise placed 15th and Holmes added seventh in reining.

Christiansen placed second in individual flags with a time of 13.14, and Burgener carded 14th at western horsemanship.

Burgener and Christiansen did well in a team event, working pairs, with 15th place, while Holmes and Ruise added 18th in the same event.

Rounding out the small school category, Burgener and Christiansen added their names to Canadian flags with a time of 41.10 for 30th place.

The next OHSET meet will be in Redmond at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, from March 28-30, with action starting at 9 a.m.
