NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University director of athletics Jody Mooradian announces a new coaching staff and riding stables for her recently elevated equestrian program. Julie Antis will be head coach and Val Barbato will be assistant coach for the program that regained varsity status in 2017. Both Antis and Barbato are equestrian staff members at Carnegie Abbey Club in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
"The facility is second to none," exclaims Mooradian.
Antis adds: "We are very excited that (the team) will be riding with us in the fall! I encourage anyone who is near the Portsmouth area to come visit over the summer, it really is a beautiful place. We will arrange a more formal meet and greet before the school year starts."
