MUET Alumni Turned Intern
As the years go by and interns move on, the equestrian staff is left finding yet another wonderful addition to our MUET family. This year, I am happy to say that I, Jackie Yeager, have accepted the position as the new equestrian intern. After being a part of MUET for four years and having competed in the IHSA all four years, I found myself not wanting to leave.
In case you haven’t already met me, I have been riding for the past seventeen years and competed in the AA and A circuit throughout Oklahoma and Tennessee. During this time, I spent the majority of my time in the hunter ring with the occasional medals before I moved onto the jumpers. When it came time to deciding where I was going to attend college, I followed both of my older sisters footsteps and choose Miami University simply because of the familiarity that I already had with the team and the coaches.
Throughout my college career here at Miami, I had many wonderful opportunities. I competed in Intermediate fences before moving up to the Open fences division ,while also competing in the Open flat division all four years. I was honored to represent Miami University at IHSA Nationals in 2013 and 2014 in the Intermediate Equitation Over Fences as well as the Collegiate Cup Open Equitation Over Fences.
As part of my position as the equestrian intern, it is now my job to continually keep our blog up to date. I will be keeping everyone informed on what is happening at the barn, at off site horse shows and add updated team information as the school year approaches. I cannot wait to meet our newest Redhawks in August!
