The season opener for the NCTA Ranch Horse Team was in Colorado over the weekend.

The open and collegiate show was sponsored by the Colorado-Wyoming-Nebraska Stock Horse Association.

"The Brighton show was perfect as a warm-up show for both our students and their horses," said Coach Joanna Hergenreder.

"All team members excelled and took away critical experience needed to approach the upcoming season with strength," added Hergenreder, animal science professor who heads the NCTA equine programs.

Weekend results were:

- Cauy Bennett of Elwood and Katy Sugar Lena competed in the Non Pro division and won the Pleasure classes. They also placed 3rd in Cow Work and Trail classes, and 5th in Reining.
