Dover, Del. (Nov. 3, 2021) — Delaware State equestrian is back in the top 10 national rankings. The National Collegiate Equestrian Association announced the top 10 Dual Discipline team rankings, and the Hornets moved into the No. 10 spot, as determined by the NCEA Selection Committee.

The Hornets rose to No. 8 in the Oct. 2, 2018 poll, the highest ranking in team history. DSU was No. 9 to begin 2019, but fell from the poll after consecutive losses to UC Davis, Auburn and Fresno State early in the 2020 calendar year.
