UW Ranch Horse Team Members Lasso Awards


February 22, 2013 — University of Wyoming ranch horse team member Lacey Teigen of Laramie received multiple honors at the Colorado-Wyoming-Nebraska Stock Horse Association’s (CoWN-SH) recent annual awards banquet in Eaton, Colo.

Teigen, a student in the Department of Animal Science in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, was honored as the 2012 collegiate limited non-pro champion, reserve champion in trial and reining, and champion in ranch pleasure. She placed in the top five for cow-working, and also won reserve limited non-pro overall at the Region 5 Championship in Denver.

The Region 5 win qualified Teigen for the American Stock Horse Association (ASHA) National Collegiate Championship April 19 in Amarillo, Texas; CoWN-SH is an affiliate of ASHA.

Team member Brian Moore of Littleton, Colo., in the Department of Computer Science, won the overall non-pro division at the Region 5 contest and also is eligible for the ASHA National Collegiate Championship.

Students compete in areas that mimic work done with a horse on a working ranch: ranch pleasure, ranch trail, reining and cow work. There are three divisions -- non-pro, limited non-pro and novice -- based upon the student’s level of experience showing.
