(Fargo, ND) -- In an update to a story we've been following for you the past few weeks, NDSU's Equestrian Club has been saved despite budget cuts at the school.

Coach Tara Swanson announced Thursday that her position had been saved from elimination.

The Equestrian Team's members started an online petition effort to save Swanson's job several weeks ago after the university announced it would be cutting her position. That petition got nearly 5,000 signatures.

Swanson attributed the university's reversal of its decision to the outreach and support of people from the team.
