MUET Riders Take on Congress
Several MU riders are making their mark in Columbus this October, competing at the All American Quarter Horse Congress. This event is the largest single breed horse show in the world and brings horses and riders from across the country to compete in a variety of riding disciplines. Every year the show receives more than 17,000 entries during its three week period and attracts 650,000 people to Ohio State Fairgrounds.
Sisters and Redhawk riders Taylor and Mallory Myers are no strangers to the Congress scene. This year, Mallory won the Working Hunter and was fourth in the jumpers and equitation. Taylor was fourth in Hunter Hack and the Non-Pro.
First year Redhawk, Ashley Dowler took her horse to Congress for their first time. The duo competed in Novice Youth Equitation Over Fences and Youth Equitation over Fences.
MUET alumna, Leah Moore, can also be spotted at Congress this year. She is competing for the Congress Queen crown. This competition includes an oral interview, written test on horse and breed knowledge, and horsemanship. The Congress Queen will be crowned this Sunday evening.
Congrats to all the these MU riders on their successes!
