The Auburn University Horse Center

The Auburn Horse Center, home of the Auburn

Equestrian Team, is part of the Department of

Animal Sciences in the College of Agriculture.

This spacious 60-acre facility is conveniently located

on the edge of campus, making it easily

accessible for student-athletes, faculty and staff.

This ideal location is a fi ve minute drive for most

student-athletes, and a transit stop is located across

the street. The Horse Center offers two side-byside

arenas for equestrian practices and meets.

This allows for both the western and hunt seat

teams to ride simultaneously without interference.

The Horse Center has played host to equestrian home meets since 2002 and hosted the 2010 Southern

Equestrian Championships. As Auburn Equestrian looks to the future, the team hopes to begin

construction on a new facility in the same location as the current center. The new facility would

boast indoor, outdoor and covered arenas, as well as classrooms, research laboratories and barns. It

would combine teaching, research and athletics in the study and performance of human and equine

athletes. The facility would be the only in the country to offer these three components together.

JUDGING

WHAT THE JUDGES ARE LOOKING FOR

Varsity Equestrian tests fi ve riders from each team in one-on-one competitions. Five horses are selected for each event and fi ve riders represent their respective

teams. Each team selects one of the fi ve horses in a draw before the competition. They are able to watch the horse warm up and then they receive four minutes to

practice on their selected mount before competing.

Riders from opposing teams compete on the same horse. Each rider recieves a score. The competitor with the highest score recieves one point for their team.

In NCAA competition, the level of diffi culty is demonstrated by the accuracy of the pattern and how the competitor uses the horse that she draw to the best of her

ability.

Hunt Seat Equitation over Fences - The judges evaluate the rider’s position, consistency on course, smoothness, fl ow from jump to jump, the number of strides

(steps taken by the horse) in a line and the rider’s plan to complete the course. Scoring for the event is out of 100 with 100 being a perfect score.

Hunt Seat Equitation on the Flat - The riders have to perform a fl at test on their horses in a 40 x 20 meter arena. The test consists of nine movements to be judged

on accuracy, smoothness and overall position of the rider. Each movement receives a score from 1-10. A tenth score judges the position and seat of the rider and the

correctness and effectiveness of her aids. The score is out of a 100 with 100 being a perfect score.

Western Horsemanship - This event is designed to evaluate the rider’s ability to execute, a prescribed set of maneuvers with precision and smoothness while

maintaining a balanced, functional and fundamentally correct body position. The ideal horsemanship pattern consists of seven to nine maneuvers and is extremely precise

with the rider and horse working in complete unison, executing each maneuver with subtle aids and cues. Exhibitors are scored for each sequence of maneuvers with a

-1.5 to +1.5 score for each maneuver with a base score beginning at 70.

Western Reining - This is a class based on set patterns and precise scoring system. Within these patterns the horses and riders athletic abilities are tested in a

series of maneuvers including spins, stops, fl ying lead changes and circles with changes in size and speed. In collegiate competition, the rider must perform one of the

set National Reining Horse Association (NHRA) patterns. There are a total of eight parts to a reining test with each individual maneuver judged from -1.5 to +1.5 with

base score beginning at 70.

Auburn Equestrian is lucky to have talented horses donated to the program from around the country.

Many of Auburn’s equine athletes come to the program with extensive backgrounds showing on the

NRHA, AQHA, and USEF circuits. Prior to coming to Auburn many have successful competitive careers

including appearances and wins at the NRHA Derby and Futurity, AQHA World Shows and Congress,

USEF Indoors, USEF Medal Finals, Medal Maclay Finals, Junior Hunter Finals, Grand Prix appearances, and a

former Olympian.

Auburn’s program realizes the signifi cance of the equine athlete and is extremely grateful for the

generous donations of its supporters. The equestrian program understands the importance of keeping our

equine athletes in top condition and appreciates the sponsorship of Nutrena Feed and Alligare Herbicide.

Through its relationship with the vet school, Auburn Equestrian is able to maintain a competitive edge for

all its equine athletes.

Head Coach

16th Season at Auburn

2011-12 AUBURN EQUESTRIAN MEDIA GUIDE


Head Coach Greg Williams has changed the face of Auburn women’s athletics and has put its

equestrian team on the map. Since his return to his alma mater, Williams has continued to add

wealth to this program and is building it to new heights.

Williams is in his 16th season as head coach of the Auburn equestrian team, the program’s 10th

year as a varsity sport.

The Paragould, Ark., native led Auburn to its fi rst overall Varsity Equestrian National Championship

in 2006 and to its fi rst discipline title, Hunt Seat, in 2008. He also helped the Tigers to their

Southern Equestrian Championship in 2010 and recently, led his team to another overall National

Championship in 2011.

Auburn Tigers

2011-12 Equestrian

Since the 1996 debut of the equestrian program, Williams has orchestrated the building of the

Equine Center and helped to change the club program to Auburn’s 21st varsity sport. He is currently working on a plan for a new

center for the equestrian team. The facility will include new covered arenas, stables and barns and will be a completed in a few short

years.

During the 2003-04 season, Williams’ Tigers upset the competition to become the 2004 Southern Equestrian Champions, the fi rst

championship in Auburn equestrian history.

That same year, Williams led the Tigers to an incredible runner-up fi nish at the Varsity Equestrian National Championships, guiding

Auburn to the IHSA National Finals in both Hunt Seat and Western in the program’s inaugural 2002-03 varsity season.

In 2006, he led the Tigers to their fi rst Varsity Equestrian National Championship, the third National Championship Auburn University

received in one month. He coached Whitney Kimble and Ashley Griffi th to the NRHA Collegiate Derby where they competed for an

individual national title.

In 2008, Williams led the Tigers to a Hunt Seat title and a sixth place fi nish in Western at the Varsity Equestrian National Championship.

The 2008-09 season saw three Auburn riders, Paige Monfore, Maggie McAlary and Anna Schierholz, selected to compete individually

at the Varsity Nationals. McAlary was also named 2009 USHJA Rider of the Year, while Lyndsey Jordan won the 2009 NRHA Collegiate

Derby.

In 2009-10, Williams helped fi ve Auburn riders to individual selections at Nationals. Once again, McAlary and Schierholz represented

Auburn in the Over Fences Championship. Senior Katie Breedlove closed out her career at Auburn with a bang, riding for Auburn in

the Equitation on Flat Championship, and freshman Indy Roper made her Nationals debut as a horsemanship selection. Senior Lyndsey

Jordan was selected to ride in the Reining Championship, as well as representing Auburn in the 2010 NRHA Collegiate Derby.

During the 2010-11 season, Williams and his team beat Georgia for the SEC Championship and would later go on to win their second

Overall National Championship, their fi rst since 2006. The Tigers took home three of four MVP awards in equitation over fences,

UNIVERSITY

Auburn’s beautiful main campus--graced by greenery

and open spaces and highlighted by historic Samford

Park--is made up of 375 buildings spread across 1,875

acres. Buildings in the main campus area are within

walking distance of each other. Residence halls are

only a short walk from classrooms, dining and athletic

facilities. Auburn is located in the southeastern United

States in east-central Alabama about 30 miles from the

Georgia border.

U.S. News & World Report has ranked Auburn among

the top 50 public universities nationwide for 16 consecutive

years. Auburn is ranked a “Best Value” by the

Princeton Review.

AU invests in extensive national assessments to obtain

quality, data-driven information for measuring and continually

improving instruction and student preparation.

More than 92 percent of our students and more than

95 percent of our alumni say that if they could start

college over again, they would choose Auburn.

A 2005 Harvard survey ranked AU as one of the top

six colleges and universities in the country as a place

for young faculty to work, which has a lot to do with

actively engaging students.

AU is the only university in the country to offer an

undergraduate degree in wireless engineering, and

the fi rst in the Southeast to offer degrees in software

engineering.

AU’s Draughon Library is the largest library in the

state, with 2.9 million volumes. The library subscribes

to 19,000 journals and 256 electronic databases,

provides library instruction and tours to students,

prospective students and parents, and serves as an

instructional resource for faculty.


Throughout its 138-year history, the College of Agriculture has

been helping advance Alabama’s agricultural economy while improving the

nutrition, health and standard of living for all citizens. Today it continues

that long tradition of service and is expanding its programs to meet the

changing needs of Alabama’s economy and citizens. As the Auburn equestrian

team is dually funded through the College of Agriculture and the

Auburn Athletic Deptmartment, “a true partnership of academic excellence

and athletic success” has been created.

The College of Agriculture offers 23 degree options in eight

departments: Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology, Agronomy and

Soils, Animal Sciences, Biosystems Engineering, Entomology and Plant Pathology,

Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures, Horticulture and Poultry Science.

The College also has the third largest scholarship program, both

in number of awards and monetary value, on Auburn’s campus and has

students from more than 70 nations.

The

Department of Animal Sciences is the largest department

in the College and suppo p rts beef, swine, dairy and equine programs ms. . In

“A true partnership of academic excellence and athletic success.”

COMER HALL

By linking the academic department of animal sciences with the

athletic department, Auburn has established a partnership like no other

in the country. By training student-athletes in both equine sciences and

athletic competition, Auburn will continue to support and strengthen Alabama’s

already thriving equine industry.

The equine industry in Alabama and throughout the Southeast

is one of the fastest growing animal industries. According to a recent

survey of 879 Alabama households, 4.9 percent of those households reported

owning or renting a horse. It is estimated that 89,000 households

have equines, with a total equine population in Alabama of 186,871.

The number of horses in Alabama and the Southeast is expected

to continue its growth, making the development of the equine option

in the department a timely endeavor. The goal is to enable students to

provide leadership in this industry in future years.

The linkage between Auburn’s equestrian competition and

eq equi uine ne aaca

Auburn Veterinary Sports Medicine

Dr. Robert Gillette

Director

Sherry Johnston

Program Director

Craig Angle

Lauren Jernigan

Program Technician

The Sports Medicine Program was established in 1991, with faculty from throughout AU’s

College of Veterinary Medicine involved in studying injuries, diseases, nutritional factors and

physiologic functions of dogs and horses involved in fi eld sports and working endeavors.

Currently the Veterinarian and the staff at Auburn University’s Sports Medicine Program

act as a team to address the health and performance of canine and equine athletes. The overall

goals of the program relate to optimizing performance, minimizing the risk of injury or metabolic

damage and defi ning the best treatment and therapy protocols as they correlate to the special

needs of these performance animals. They want to improve the health, well-being and functional

longevity of the athletic and working animal and disseminate information on clinical and research

fi ndings to those involved with dogs and horses.

Coach Williams and Dr. Robert L. Gillette have started a research initiative for the advancement

of equine sports medicine. They are heading up a research team that will study different

issues in equine sports medicine.

Key areas of interest in this program are biomechanics, exercise physiology, nutrition, athletic

performance and general heart health. The goal of the research will be to study areas of equine

sports medicine that have not been studied before and disseminate that information to the equine

community for the betterment of the equine athletes.

Equine Performance Testing

The Auburn University Veterinary Sports Medicine Program has explored new technologies to analyze

performance in athletic and working horses. These technologies enable the monitoring of horses while they

are working in their environment and with all the stimuli of that environment. Horses can be evaluated in

a natural non-laboratory setting. For example, performance evaluations may include cardiac measurements,

blood samples, velocity, distance traveled by horses and high speed motion analysis of the horse.

Motion Analysis

The AUVSMP has the ability to use high speed video cameras to analyze almost any movement or

component of movement that a horse executes during a sports skill. Movements can either be analyzed via

slow motion analysis or movements can be analyzed by quantifi cation of kinematic measurements. They can

quantify movement by quantifi ed measurements of motion. This allows assessment of body movement to help

diagnose an injury, reveal a possible risk of injury or help refi ne the movement of a sports skill.

A Collaborative Effort

Dr. Robert Gillette and Greg Williams (Head Coach of the AU Equestrian Team) have started a research

initiative for the advancement of equine sports medicine. Dr. Gillette and Coach Williams are heading

up a research team that will study different issues in equine sports medicine. Areas of interest are biomechanics,

exercise physiology, nutrition, athletic performance and general heard health. Currently, the research team

is compiling ideas, preparing pilot studies and searching for research funding.

The goal of the research will be to study areas of equine sports medicine that have not been studied

before and disseminate that information to the equine community for the betterment of the equine athletes.

A second goal of the AUVSMP-Equestrian Team relationship will be to expose veterinary students to equine

athletes. The AUVSMP Student Chapter will also be participating in certain research projects and general

sports medicine management of the equine athletes. Lastly, the AUVSMP is going to provide biomechanical

sports skill analysis for both the equine athletes and the riders. This technical analysis will aid the coaching

staff in teaching, modifying and enhancing rider technique.


STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

The Auburn equestrian team benefi ts from the direction of one of the

fi nest strength and conditioning staffs in the country.

The James T. Tatum, Jr, Strength and Conditioning Center stands as a

testament to Auburn’s ongoing commintment to providing state-of-the-art

training facilities for its student athletes. The center emcompasses more than

14,000 square feet and is triple the size of its presecesor.

The fi rst fl oor of the two-story center houses 20 power stations,

which contain the majority of the equipment used by student-athletes during

workouts, leading to effective and time-effi cient training. The second fl oor con-

tains various machines, medicine balls, aerobic equipment and an open exercise

area for additional training.

Auburn A Director of Athletics Jay Jacobs has a

vision v of leading Auburn Athletics to becoming

the th nation’s preeminent Athletics Department.

In his tenure at the helm of the Tigers’

program, p the department has prospered athletically,

le academically and financially.

Under Jacobs’ leadership, Auburn Athletics

has made major strides benefitting Auburn student-athletes, coaches and fans. The

department has focused on five strategic goals under his leadership: Winning, graduating

student-athletes, managing the department’s fiscal affairs, complying with SEC and

NCAA rules and providing a professional game day experience.

The Auburn Athletics Department has consistently ranked in the top 10 percent

of the NACDA Directors Cup and has claimed eight national championships under

Jacobs, including a school-record four titles in 2005-06, along with 14 Southeastern

Conference titles.

Academically, Auburn has earned five public recognitions by the NCAA for scoring

in the 90th-100th percentile nationally in the Academic Progress Rate (APR).

Jacobs served as the Senior Associate Athletics Director for Tigers Unlimited

prior to his appointment as Director of Athletics and has initiated several successful

business ventures for the Athletics Department, including a five-year contract with

Under Armour Performance Apparel and a nine-year extension with multi-media rights

holder ISP Sports.

During Jacobs’ tenure, Auburn has also moved forward with numerous facility

projects designed to benefit Tiger athletic programs and their fans, most notably, the

construction of the $92.5 million state-of-the-art basketball arena and practice facility

that will open prior to the 2010-11 season.

Jacobs was named Auburn’s 14th Director of Athletics on Dec. 22, 2004, after

working in almost every area of the Auburn Athletics Department for the previous 20

years.

Jacobs earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees in business administration

from Auburn in 1985 and 1988, respectively, and was a member of the Auburn football

team, earning two letters as an offensive tackle in 1982 and 1983.

He is married to the former Angie Sapp of Dublin, Ga. The couple has three

daughters, Haley, Meagan and Jayne.

EAGLE!

Auburn's Eagles

For over 100 years, eagles have been associated with

Auburn University’s football program. From a static

presence on the sidelines to rousing fl ights over the

fi eld, WAR EAGLE has become an Auburn icon.

The role of Auburn University's eagles is to promote

wildlife conservation as a part of the education

initiatives of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the

College of Veterinary Medicine’s Southeastern Raptor

Center. The USF&WS permits the Raptor Center to

house eagles and use them on hundreds of educational

presentations each year – including Auburn’s

home football games. Currently, three fl ighted eagles

and numerous other non-releasable raptors are used

for these educational programs. Eagles stir emotions

in many people as they have come to symbolize

strength, power and courage as well as other important

values such as freedom, American heritage and

the preservation of our environment.

Auburn Fight Song

War Eagle”

Auburn’s battle cry, not Auburn’s

nickname. There are several legends

concerning the origin of the War Eagle

battle cry, dating back to 1864 and the

Civil War at the Battle of the

Wilderness in Virginia.

War...Eagle, Fly down the fi eld, Ever to conquer, never to yield.

War...Eagle fearless and true. Fight on, you orange and blue.

Go! Go! Go!

On to vic’'try, strike up the band,

Give ‘em hell, give ‘em hell.

Stand up and yell, Hey! War...Eagle, win for Auburn,

Power of Dixie Land!

‘Neath its sun-kissed sky,

Proudly stands, our Alma Mater

Banners high.

To thy name we’ll sing thy praise,

From hearts that love so true,

And pledge to thee our

Loyalty the ages through.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow

To work for thy just fame,

And hold in memory as we do now

Thy cherished name.

Hear thy student voices swelling,

Echoes strong and clear,

Adding laurels to thy fame

Enshrined so dear.

From thy hallowed halls we’ll part,

And bid thee sad adieu;

Thy sacred trust we’ll bear with us

The ages through.

We hail thee, Auburn, and we vow

To work for thy just fame,

And hold in memory as we do now

Thy cherished name.

Auburn Creed

Creed &

ALMA MATER

I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I

earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.

I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and

trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.

I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the

respect and confi dence of my fellow men.

I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid,

and in clean sports to develop these qualities.

I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.

I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow

men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.

I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is

my own home, and that I can best serve that country by “doing justly, loving

mercy, and walking humbly with my God.”

And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in

Auburn and love it.

- George Petrie (1945)
