Kali Kostelac of Baldwin City leaned forward on her horse, putting her weight into the stirrups and gripping the spoon tight. She watched the egg intently, giving it her full focus as she hugged the edges of the arena. After being commanded to switch hands and drop the stirrups, Kostelac was forced to sit back onto her horse, and her balance was thrown off.
