Club Equestrian Team

Equestrian_2015.jpgMount St. Mary University's Riding Club (MSMURC) and Intercollegiate Equestrian Team (MSMET) is a club sport that is partially funded by the university, but primarily through club fundraising and individual student dues. The MSMU Riding Club is an organization that is comprised of students, faculty, staff, and parents who are interested in the social and educational activities of the local horse community. Members are involved in lessons, trail rides, clinics, and often come to cheer the MSMET at intercollegiate shows. Both the club and the team were started in 1998 by several Mount students.The MSMET competes in Zone IV, Region I of the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association. The MSMU team competes against fifteen other colleges in Maryland and travels to different schools for shows. Students do not bring horses to these shows, but instead, ride those provided by the host college. Riders randomly select horses to ride, and without practice, go into the ring to compete. The goal of the intercollegiate competitions is to allow riders of all levels (beginners to "open level") to enjoy competition as both an individual and team member. Riders can advance to Regionals, Zones, and even on to Nationals.The "home" of the MSMU Riding Club and Team is Middle Creek Stables. The stable is located just a few minutes from campus, off of Route 15. Head coach, Janis Groomes, is the owner of Middle Creek Stables and also provides lessons there.

Student Run
