The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) Horse Judging Team finished their season by being named Champion and Third High Teams at the 2019 American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) World Show Intercollegiate Horse Judging Contest. The contest was held on November 16, in conjunction with the AQHA World Show in Oklahoma City. NEO competed against other two-year colleges and along with claiming two of the top three team spots, also had nearly two dozen top-ten individual finishes, with Hannah Tweed and Taylor Scheulen finishing Champion and Reserve Champion Individual overall. Tweed, a sophomore Business Administration major from Chouteau, Okla., earned high individual after finishing in the top two of Halter, Performance, and Reasons classes. She was joined on the podium by Scheulen, a sophomore Agriculture/Equine major from Linn, Mo, who finished first in Performance and Reasons and fifth overall in Halter.
“I couldn’t be any more proud of this team and all that they accomplished,” said Head Coach Kevin Pool. “I’ve only been with them for the past ninety days, but they’ve welcomed me in since day one and never strayed from their goals that they had set for themselves before I arrived. Much of the credit goes to Amanda Jones and Josi Reed for their success as they spent all of last spring preparing them for this fall.”
