MUET Dressage is Going to Nationals!


A beautiful sunrise to start a great show day!

On April 1st and 2nd, MUET hosted its annual dressage home show to finish out the IDA regular season. All of the early mornings, planning and prepping paid off, as the show went off without a hitch! The horses were beautiful and well-behaved, and gave their all to put in great tests. Our riders also put in some amazing tests, winning Reserve Champion Team on Sunday.
