MUET Hunt Seat Home Show

MUET hosted its first home show of the year on October 1st and 2nd! Six schools competed both days, including Ohio State, Ohio University, Wilmington, University of Dayton, Otterbein University and Miami University. Our team did an amazing job hosting the show, and our horses were fantastic throughout the whole weekend.

It was the Hunt Seats first show of the year, and many of our freshman’s first opportunity to compete! They all rode beautifully, and were dedicated to making the show a great time both in and out of the ring. Congratulations to everyone who competed!

Every year at our Hunt Seat and Western shows, MUET raises money for Ride for the Ribbon, IHSA’s partnership with Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. This year we had a jump decorated in pink, and sold t-shirts and cookies to raise money for the cause. With the Western Show coming up, we hope to raise even more money!

The team also got to use their brand new Oglivy saddle pads and half pads! Our horses were happy and comfortable during the long show days.

We would like to thank our dedicated parents who came to support the team, some coming as far as California to cheer on MUET! We appreciate the food and drinks they brought and special thanks to Susan Knox for taking some great photos of the weekend’s events!  We can never thank our parents enough!
