The UGA equestrian team won the 2014 National Collegiate Equestrian Association championship in April, its sixth national championship and the first since 2010.

Georgia beat teams from Baylor and Oklahoma State to face South Carolina in the finals of the event, held in Waco, Texas. They beat South Carolina 3-1 in a rematch of the Southeastern Conference championship.

McKenzie Lantz and Liza Finsness were named most valuable players.

UGA added equestrian to its varsity athletics programs in 2001.
