MUET takes Meredith Manor and OSU
This weekend was a busy, show filled weekend for MUET. The Hunt Seat Team traveled to Ohio State this weekend to compete in their first show of the spring semester! The team rode hard, placing 4th on Saturday and 3rd on Sunday.
The weekend was full of individual successes, such as Carlo Costanzo winning his first blue ribbon, as well as Tyler Miles, Ashley Dowler, Taylor Myers, Emily Simanskis, Jill O’Bryan, and Kylie Fleming all winning their classes! Ashley Dowler was the Reserve High Point Rider on Saturday, and Mallory Myers was in a 6 way tie for High Point Rider on Sunday with 2 first places!
We had amazing weather both days of the horseshow. To pick the team up after a day of tough competition Saturday, the coaches brought lucky kitties and sang us Sheldon’s “Soft Kitty” song from Big Bang theory. It must have worked because the team had a lot of blue ribbons on Sunday and many people qualified for regionals individually! Katie Schulze became the team cheerleader with her pump up session on the bus Sunday morning, including running up and down the aisle and a rousing rendition of “All I do is Win”.
We were also reminded how amazing and supportive MUET parents are, with many parents coming to cheer the team on and make sure the team is well fed. We really appreciate their constant love and support!
The Dressage Team traveled to West Virginia to show at Meredith Manor, an International Equine College. This is Meredith Manors first year participating in IDA, and they hosted an amazing show. We are so grateful that they took on the task of planning an entire home show in less than 2 months! We can’t express our gratitude enough.
Our Miami riders rode amazingly, and the team placed 2nd and 8th on Saturday and 2nd and 5th on Sunday!
On Saturday, Jeana-Rae Schaper placed 3rd in First Level with an awesome test, and Natalie Davis placed 4th in Upper Training in a very competitive division. Elizabeth Foster placed 1st and Kendall Neubeiser placed 3rd in Lower Training, both putting in very well ridden tests, and Eastyn Newsome placed 3rd and Sarah Kingsbury placed 5th in Intro to end the day strong.
On Sunday, Jeana-Rae Schaper placed 4th in First Level, and Spencer Clark placed 6th in his First Level Debut. Mariah Knagg placed 3rd and Kirsten Drew placed 6th in Upper Training, and both rode beautifully. Kendall Neubeiser placed 1st and Elizabeth Foster placed 2nd in Lower Training, sweeping the division, and Sarah Kingsbury placed 3rd in Intro with a great test.
Congratulations to all of the riders who competed!
MUET had a great weekend, and the next few weeks will be just as busy! Keep checking in for more updates as the team approaches the end of the regular season!
