Horse owned by Lubbock resident
The black horse that carried Texas Tech’s Masked Rider across the Jones AT&T Stadium field Saturday received positive reviews.
Sam Jackson, associate chair and professor of Animal Science, said the horse didn’t run hard across the field, but it didn’t get scared and run off either.
“It was fine,” Jackson said. “He didn’t just charge down the field, because it was his first time. He was a little hesitant, but he wasn’t scared. You have to run it a few times before you can go hard, straight down the field.”
