The Baylor equestrian team opens its 2012-2013 season today by hosting the fifth annual Willis Invitational at the Willis Family Equestrian Center.

The tournament, which will run through Saturday, will showcase talent from Miami State, Ohio State, New Mexico State and Delaware State as well as Baylor.

“Coming off a National Championship last year, we graduated one person and brought in some great freshmen. With how we were represented this summer, I expect a lot to happen this season,” head coach Ellen White said. “I don’t like to lose. We are here to win. The girls understand that if they don’t perform I will crack the whip, but they understand what it takes to win.”

The tournament begins at 10 a.m. today and will consist of four events; fences, flat, reigning and horsemanship.

The Saturday rounds will begin at 9 a.m.
