Recently, I posted an article detailing every volleyball coach the University of Georgia has had. I listed the year they started, how well the team did with them, and when they left. Now I aim to do something similar with their equestrian team.

UGA’s equestrian team was created in 2001. Since then, they’ve had many coaches, each adding their own touch to the ever-changing UGA team. Today we’ll look solely at their current coaches— when they joined, what role they play, and their experiences with the team.

The coaches

Meghan Boenig

Meghan Boenig is the team’s head coach, and she has been with UGA since the beginning. She started coaching the equestrian team in October 2001. She graduated from Berry College in 1999 with a Bachelor’s degree in biology. Before arriving at UGA, she coached at Texas A&M for two years. She also earned a Master’s degree in Animal Science during this time, which is one of the reasons UGA chose her; they wanted an equestrian coach who already had knowledge of Animal Science.

Anna Becker

Anna Becker is the team’s assistant coach. She still has many years before she reaches veteran status, as she only joined in 2018. She’s predominantly in charge of the fencing squad, and acts as a recruiter for the English discipline. Before joining UGA, she coached hunter seat at Kansas state from 2013 to 2015. She graduated Cum Laude with a marketing degree.

McKenzie Lantz Breuker

McKenzie Lantz Breuker is the newest addition to this current coaching lineup. She was added in June 2021 as a Western Assistant Coach. She worked as a Volunteer Assistant for UGA back in 2015, then left to SMU and Fresno state for a while before coming back. When she attended she university herself, she was named UGA Western MVP twice.

The future of the team

Clearly, UGA has some good coaches in their lineup. They each bring their own experience, whether it be from other coaching jobs, or from being on a team themselves. Two even attended the school that ended up hiring them. With stats like these, it will be exiting to see what happens once the season kicks back into gear.

Their next match is on February 4, against Sweet Briar College.
