IHSA Nationals at the Big E

This year, MUET had two riders qualify individually for IHSA Nationals. They were held at the Big E in West Springfield Massachusetts. Sophomore Rachel McConnell qualified in the Hunt Seat Novice Flat division and freshman Lauren Martyn qualified in the Western Open Horsemanship.

The Nationals capitalized on the rich history of the eastern seaboard.  The draw table simulated the water, sand, and sea life, as students drew plush lobsters to find out their horses.

Thursday afternoon Rachel drew Remy from Cazenovia College. She rode wonderfully to a ninth place finish overall.

Next up, Lauren rode Friday afternoon on a horse named George provided by the University of Findlay. It seems that ninth place was in MUET’s cards for the weekend as Lauren finished up ninth as well.
