Local Equestrian Earns Top Honors At National Event

Aiden Wyse

Aiden Wyse, an Archbold fourth grade student, recently competed at the 2019 Youth Equestrian Development Association National Championship competition in Sunbury.

Wyse, a member of the Hancock Horseman Equestrian Team, was the top point earner for his state and was invited to the YEDA National Championship Invitational, where he won a national championship in Elementary Pearl Rail Horsemanship.

He also bested riders from 27 other teams from around the country and earned eighth place in Individual Elementary Pearl Rail Horsemanship.

The events are particularly challenging considering riders do not ride their own horse; they simply draw a random name of a horse from a large pool.
