ATHENS, Ga. – Fresh off its win over No. 1 Auburn, the third-ranked University of Georgia equestrian team will return to the UGA Equestrian Complex this weekend, as it hosts No. 4 Baylor and Fresno State. This will be the last regular-season meet in Bishop, Ga., but the Bulldogs will host the Southern Equitation Championship that will feature South Carolina and Auburn.
