Texas A&M will be honoring its senior Class of 2012 at the meet, the winningest and most successful in program history. The Class of '12 has brought home three straight western national championships, 40 victories overall, and the school's first Big 12 equestrian championship last April. In addition, they helped lift the Aggies to the first No. 1 ranking in program history-a spot held most of last season-and have gone 20-1 at the Expo Complex in their careers.
A&M's school-record 21-meet home win streak will be on the line against the Bears (9-4), who narrowly defeated the Aggies 12-11 in mid-November in Waco.
The teams will ride six in each discipline for a total of 24 points at stake. Horsemanship and fences will begin concurrently at 11 a.m. in the north and south arenas, respectively. Senior presentations will follow, followed by flat and reining competitions getting underway at approximately 1 p.m.
The Aggies have won nine of 15 all-time shows against the Bears. Saturday's show will be key in deciding seeding for the upcoming Big 12 Championships, held at the end of the month in Manhattan, Kan.
Scoring updates throughout the show will be provided through the team's official twitter feed at twitter.com/AggieEquestrian and will also be available on aggieathletics.com.
The Brazos County Expo Complex is located at 3827 Leonard Road in Bryan.
