The riding team traveled to Lynchburg for an Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) event that was co-hosted by Sweet Briar and Lynchburg. For the fourth time this season, Hollins was crowned Reserve Champion. Individually, Byrd won a pair of ribbons to help the cause. In Open Flat, Randi claimed a first place finish while placing as the runner-up in Open Fences. For her efforts, the senior earned a spot in the IHSA regional show later this spring. After winning a three-way ride-off, Byrd was named High Point Rider of the show. On the season, Randi has been named High Point Rider four times and Reserve High Point Rider once, in just eight events.
