Final exams are complete, grades have been entered, and red caps and gowns have marched across campus in a celebration of achievements, goals, and dreams. The barn is now quiet; the horses are settling in for a long summer after a week of exuberant final rides and bittersweet goodbyes.
Take a look at some of the farewell festivities shared by MUET over the past few weeks!
On April 23rd we celebrated our graduating class with a musical showcase performance. The seniors and coaches worked hard to prepare the event, spending many hours choreographing, practicing, and preparing music. 15 riders performed in the event that showcased individual talents as well as a group dynamic that made for a stunning show. 3 different acts were featured – a dressage quadrille, a jumping drill team, and a drill comprised of both hunt seat and western performers.
Each group showcased different aspects of team riding, whether they incorporated signature drill team moves, performed difficult synchronized figures, or highlighted different aspects of each disciplines’ training. After the final act, the riders joined together to ride around the ring in a celebration of team unity, school spirit, and unending love for the horses and the sport.

Among our valued guests were President Crawford and his wife, Dr. Crawford, who paid us a visit to watch the performances and visit with the students and horses.
Thank you to everyone who participated or attended the event!
We want to extend a special congratulations to all of our seniors, as we wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavors. We hope they know that they will always be a part of our MUET family!
