Bethany Sacks                                                  PRESIDENT 


I am a Senior from Rochester, New York majoring in Biological Sciences, and I intend to go to medical school after graduating. I have been riding for about thirteen years now, and I could not imagine my life without it. I competed mainly in local shows and IEA before joining the IHSA team here my freshman year of college. I am so grateful for how this team has helped me grow as a rider and allowed me to make some amazing friends in my teammates! I feel so lucky to continue to both lead and be a part of such an amazing group of riders. I look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our team this season!




Caitlyn Higginbotham                         VICE PRESIDENT OF AFFAIRS


I am a Senior from Watkinsville, Georgia double majoring in Animal Science and Fisheries & Wildlife, and I intend to go to veterinary school after graduating with the hopes of becoming an equine vet.  I have been riding for about eleven years now, and I have competed in IEA, local shows, and rated shows.  Joining the IHSA team has given me a chance to continue to compete alongside fantastic teammates who are just as dedicated to this sport as I am.  I am so excited to continue to build up my team in the upcoming year!

Lily Hill                                               VICE PRESIDENT OF FINANCE


I am a Junior from Kennesaw GA, and I am majoring in Health Promotion. I have been riding for over ten years, and I have competed mostly in the jumper ring. Joining the team two years ago was hands down the best decision I could have made, and I am very excited to serve as an officer again this year. I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for us!



Meredith Barber                                        PUBLIC RELATIONS


I am a Sophomore from Dalton, Georgia, and I am double majoring in Biological Sciences and Animal Science. I have ridden for eight years and competed mostly in the local hunter ring. This team instantly made UGA feel like home and gave me my second family. I look forward to another awesome year to come!

I am a Junior from Nassau, Bahamas majoring in Environmental Engineering and minoring in Spanish. I have competed in hunters, jumpers, and equitation, and I also competed in IEA in high school. I love riding and am so grateful to be on this team with such passionate and hardworking riders!


Andy Douglas                                            BARN MANAGER


I am a Junior from Johannesburg, South Africa majoring in Animal Science. I have been riding for just over ten years now where I mainly competed in the jumpers and eventing. This will be my third year on the team, and it has truly become my home away from home. I’m so grateful to be part of a such a wonderful group and able to follow my passion throughout college. I’m sure we are going to have a another successful season!
