Horseback riding is a southern tradition. There's just something about the smell of leather and fresh hay that warms our heart. So naturally, the returning SEC Champions, the South Carolina Gamecocks will be hosting the 2014 SEC Equestrian Championship, March 28th & 29th at One Wood Farm, 20 minutes outside of Columbia in Blythewood, SC. The Gamecocks have dominated the season setting a record with 11 wins and have ranked #1 for 16 straight weeks.
