Rebekah Thomson, a 2013 graduate of Saugus High School, won the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) National Championship in the Intermediate Western Horsemanship competition.

Rebekah is currently a freshman at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana and rides on their Equestrian Team.

The IHSA is made up of more than 400 college teams and almost 10,000 riders, and the national championships were recently held from May 1-4 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Rebekah previously won the Montana regional and the national semi-finals in Texas to earn a spot among the top 12 riders that advanced to the national finals competition.

Her win is the first national championship for the RMC Equestrian Team.
