COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Rising junior Audrey Gallagher has signed her National Letter of Intent to join the Texas A&M equestrian team, coming to the Aggies as a transfer from the University of Georgia, Associate Head Coach Linzy Woolf announced.
“We are excited to welcome Audrey to the Aggie family,” Woolf said. “Audrey has really impressed me with her maturity and professionalism in the classroom and in the competition ring. She already has a great feel for the level of competition we are going up against in the SEC, and knows what it takes to excel in equitation on the flat. I feel like she will be a great fit for our team dynamics, and will be a strong contributor to our hunter seat squad.”
The Richmond, Va., native signed with the Bulldogs in May of 2012 and spent two seasons with the team, posting a career-high score of 85 in equitation on the flat against the Aggies in November. Gallagher has earned ribbons at Devon, Pennsylvania National Horse Show, Washington International Horse Show and the National Horse Show. Most recently, the standout won the 2013 Marshall & Sterling Adult Medal Finals, and was named the 2013 United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) Adult Equitation Champion.
Gallagher is the daughter of Gene and Janet Gallagher, and trains with Don Stewart. She is a 2012 graduate of The Steward School in Richmond, where she was a member of the National Honor Society.
Gallagher will join the Aggies on campus in the fall of 2014. The Texas A&M equestrian team ended the 2013-14 season at the NCEA Championships last weekend for the third-straight season. To learn more about Texas A&M equestrian, log on to AggieAthletics.com and follow @AggieEquestrian on Twitter.
