Washington, CT - In a Jeopardy-style event, two teams of horse-savvy students competed for the Glenholme Equestrian Trophy during the Second Annual Equestrian Knowledge Bowl on March 1, 2012. This fast-paced, 50-minute, beat-the-buzzer competition challenged the teams to correctly answer each question in front of an enthusiastic audience of students and staff within a mere 20-second time frame.

While the Fillies were confident in their answers - making only a few errors during the challenge, the Colts were quick to the buzzer - a distinct advantage in such a fast paced race. After an impressive display of knowledge by both teams, the Colts trotted off as champions for the second straight year. They will be honored with a special display in the Glenholme Horse Barn, next to the prized Equestrian Trophy.

Team building events, such as the Equestrian Knowledge Bowl, foster confidence, improved self-esteem, and sportsmanship amongst peers and staff. The next quest for the Equestrian Trophy promises to be another exciting competition!
