MEMPHIS YOUTH EQUESTRIAN TEAM (MYET)
Proud to be the 1st Memphis area Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) Team in history, to qualify BOTH High School and Middle School Team's for Regionals in our first year!
WHO IS THE MEMPHIS YOUTH EQUESTRIAN TEAM?
The Memphis Youth Equestrian Team is a Hunt Seat team and 2019-2020 is our very first year! Coached by Founder Ashlee Pigford and Leslie Gattuso, we are proud to be the first IEA team established in the Memphis area offering both a High School and Middle School team! We are also the first local team to qualify BOTH our High School and Middle School Team's for our Zone Four Regionals 2019 to 2020 Season!!! BOTH our High School and Middle School team's were Champion High Point Team at our last regular show of the season at Providence Hill Farm in Jackson, MS. We are on the road to regionals and will see where it leads!
Currently, we are recruiting youth riders and open to Memphis, Collierville, Germantown, and Olive Branch area middle and high school youth. Our Team is a year-round, fun, educational, and a more affordable way to participate in riding and horse shows than traditionally- when having to own or lease a horse of your own With this method, you only need to lease a horse and pay horse fees at the shows you attend. You will NOT have high team membership fees with us or pricey lesson/practice fees...We keep our team fees in check and offer alternatives if you can not afford IEA required costs. ! You do NOT need to own a horse to participate. Our team is for kids who love horses, and who want to expand their education about horses in a supportive, encouraging group of fellow horse lover's. Your coaches and team will hold you to high standards to help you meet your goals, but fun will be had by all!
Our Team's goal is to expand equestrian sports to kids interested, affordably! Costs are flexible and reasonable to encourage youth to pursue riding and furthering kids' equine education and career interests. We're focused and dedicated to building a program focused on good horsemanship, good sportsmanship, and teamwork.
Joining our team is easy. We will walk you through the criteria and rules required to join. See some of the benefits below:
