Georgia equestrian head coach Megan Boenig announced 14 riders have signed a National Letter of Intent to continue their riding careers and education at the University of Georgia beginning with the 2018-19 school year. The signed riders include Adelaide Toensing of Charlotte.

“Our early 2018 signing class is a strong one,” Boenig said. “It brings depth in each event with strength in both competitive success and catch riding. We are additionally very proud of the academic strength of many of our student-athletes. They continue a tradition of strength outside of the arena, both in school, in the community and in leadership.  We look forward to this bright young Bulldog class to be our future.”

Toensing will head to Georgia with a lengthy list of accomplishments, awards and accolades. Among those, she was the Hits Ocala Equitation Championship Winner in 2017 and  an EAP National Finalist in 2015. She also earned a silver medal in Zone Jumper Championships and Reserve Champion in the $10,000 High Children’s Classic at Capitol Challenge this year.
