DANVILLE (WSLS 10) – Averett University is helping kick off a nationwide celebration of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association.
The association’s founder, Bob Cacchione, visited the university’s riding center on Friday morning.
His stop at Averett marked the kickoff of his nationwide tour of college and university riding programs in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association.
Cacchione said he liked what he saw at Averett.
“Very impressed. First of all, I never expected to see the barn I see and the indoor arena, which is amazing here. It’s clean as a whistle. It’s spotless,” Cacchione explained.
He will now travel to Rutgers University in New Jersey and dozens of other colleges and universities between now and the IHSA finals in May.
