Equestrian standout Jacobs signs with SMU

Charlotte Jacobs, a senior at Buffalo Seminary, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Southern Methodist University for equestrian. The Mustangs are members of the National Collegiate Equestrian Association.

Jacobs won the 2010 and 2012 Shalanno Style of Riding Award at the Washington International Horse Show. The East Aurora native was also a member of the gold-medal-winning 2012 NAJRYC team and also won an individual bronze. Jacobs earned top honors at this year’s 2012 Devon Horse Show, taking first in the USEF Medal and the USEF Talent Search, and was the winner of the Ronnie Mutch Equitation Championship at the 2011 and 2012 shows.

“Charlotte has had an outstanding junior career and is one of the top equitation and jumper riders in the country,” SMU coach Haley Schoolfield said. “She will be an immediate asset to our hunter seat team, and we are very excited to welcome her into the Mustang family.”
