October's Equifit Equitation on the Flat Rider of the Month goes to Ali Tritschler of University of Georgia.  The junior from Southport, Connecticut defeated her opponents by an average of 10 points this month.  Tritschler is currently undefeated in Equitation on the Flat, with two road wins.  The Bulldog defeated riders of two top 5 opponents and earned MOP honors at home in October.
