Lakeview and Paisley students competed in the first Oregon High School Equestrian Teams (OHSET) meet of the season, which was held at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center in Redmond from Thursday, March 18 to Sunday, March 21.

Daniel and Carmen Tague coach the Lakeview High School and Paisley High School teams. There are 10 athletes between the two schools, two of whom are what OHSET calls “grooms”: 8th graders who can come to practices and participate in team functions, but cannot compete at the competitions.

Paisley High School’s team consists of Basil Vickerman and Brianna Haynes. Vickermam competed in the first meet.

Lakeview High School’s team is Samantha Hopper, Ella Villagrana, Hammond Woodworth, Kaydyn Kintzley, Montana Black, and Alexis McBane. Sarah Garton and Cecilia Woodworth are 8th grade grooms. Hopper, Villagrana, Woodworth, Kintzley and Black competed in the first meet.

“We are part of central district and it was a huge undertaking to put this meet on under the COVID restrictions but it went really well and we were able to accomplish it,” Coach Daniel Tague noted. He explained that for team placing, the teams are separated by size, so giant schools aren’t competing with miniature schools.

“These kids have been practicing since December and we are very proud of them and they did very well for their first meet of the season,” Tague said.

Lakeview and Paisley’s next OHSET meet will be Thursday, April 15 through Sunday, April 18 in Redmond, again at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center.
