Starting Off Strong
This past weekend, Miami’s western team traveled to Wilmington, OH, where they competed at their first IHSA show of the season. Wilmington College hosted both an a.m. and p.m. show, allowing MUET to show off their skills on a beautiful sunny day. Miami was named the High Point team in the morning and the Reserve High Point team in the afternoon.
First year members Lydia Yount and Megan Ashbrook were able to bring home the blue’s their first time in the ring! Lydia was aboard Ohio State’s horse Arizona in the novice and Megan was first in the Intermediate 2. Congrats to both!
Thanks to head coach Beth Akers, “The Tomahawk” traveled with the team for the day. The new mascot clearly did his job in rooting on the riders.
