DSU horse earns major award: The National Collegiate Equestrian Association (NCEA) has announced this year’s top horses in collegiate equestrian and Delaware State’s “Calvin” has made the list for the second year in a row.

“Calvin,” a 13-year-old gelding, is a Western quarter horse and a Top-10 in the nation in the Horsemanship category. He was donated to the university by a friend of the Hornet equestrian program.

The selection of Calvin as a Top 10 horse is the latest accomplishment for the Delaware State equestrian team. The Hornets will compete in next week’s National Collegiate Equestrian Association championship tournament in Waco, Tex., after capturing the 2017 United Equestrian Conference title for the first time in team history last month.

Delaware State head coach Jen Ridgley was named 2017 United Equestrian Conference Co-Coach of the Year. She won the award for the first time in 2016.
