Congratulations to MYET on an amazing first season! We won Reserve Champion High School Team and are Champion Middle School Team in Zone 4 Region 12 at our Regionals in Thompson Station, TN at the Jaeckle Center on 2.16.2020. Congrats to both of our teams and all of our riders, parents, coaches, and supporters! Unfortunately, we did NOT attend Zone 4 finals due to the Covid-19 outbreak, but we look forward to a healthy return to riding and team practices soon! Everyone stay safe, stay healthy, and keep up the social distancing, and stay in touch remotely! Wishing our group health and safety!
The first regular season has come to a close with the Memphis Youth Equestrian Team (MYET) closing it out CHAMPION TEAM BOTH High School and Middle School at our last show at Providence Hill in Jackson, MS! We choose to challenge ourselves by traveling and attending this highly competitive show outside of our region with our awesome Jackson, MS IEA competitors! This group of fabulous A rated quality show horses and riders put us to test and we are thrilled that we delivered with Reserve Team Championships the first day AND CHAMPION the following! Indeed, we are a competitive new IEA team force to be reckoned with on our way to regionals! Our High School team will compete against the Jaeckle Center IEA team for the Championship spot in our Region this season AND our Middle School will compete against several team's for team placings in February! Good Luck Team MYET!!! Congratulations also to Individual Team Members qualifying for Regionals: Clara Hickerson, Vivian Smith, Audrey Moll, and Mallory Phillips!
IEA TEAM UPDATE
We are excited about 2020 and have some exciting things planned! The Memphis Youth Equestrian IEA Team has had a successful and BUSY November! Our first in-barn scrimmage with Rhodes College was a great success. We have traveled to three shows now, two in Middle TN, and one in Jackson, MS. Our team and parents had a wonderful time and brought home MANY TRICOLORS and BLUES! We are so proud of everyone already. We're off to Murfreesboro Dec 15th and can't wait. BTW, we are still recruiting new team members and have several traveling for their first show with us this month! We are excited about our growing group and awesome program. It is never too late to join us. We are knee deep in show season, but we are more than showing and have year-round activities and events to participate in.
HARVEST TIME UPDATE
Coach Leslie had a great show with her crew at the WTHJA Harvest Time A Show! Sofie Herbstrith and Dusty were Champion in the USHJA 2'3 Hunters and Sarah Moran and Ozzie, and Haley Lathum and Ace got great ribbons as well. Way to go Meadowthorpe Farm Barn Team!

6-10-2019 Old Horses, Rescue Horses, OTTB Rehab Horses, and a "Hony" (in between pony and horse)- excel at the 2019 Germantown Charity Horse Show!
Congratulations to Coach Leslie and her crew on a great job at the Germantown Charity Horse Show! We are so proud to have this amazing Coach, talented riders, & supportive parents!!! You all represent what this farm stands for! Most important, you demonstrate a genuine love for horses & put their care & welfare first! The good ribbons rock, but the real success isn't "beating" other competitors. It's excelling with the horses you ladies love, believe in, & MADE! Demonstrating that rescue horses, old horses, off the track Thoroughbred's (ottb's) pulled out of rice fields, small horses in between pony & horse (NOT a single warmblood btw) CAN compete, hold their own, & be a force to be reckoned with at a AA Horse Show like the Germantown Charity Horse Show This sport CAN be done the way we do it! Here is the proof! (see Photos and Videos below.)
We had an amazing Youth Equestrian Team meeting April 17th and enjoyed meeting so many motivated kids and parents! We're going to have one heck of a Middle School and High School team and are made up of riders from all over the area and from all kinds of disciplines. We've got a barrel racer, eventers, carriage drivers, dressage riders, welsh pony riders, jumpers, and western riders on our team-all pumped about experiencing new adventures and having fun learning and competing together. We're accepting riders still from 4th grade on up if you'd like to join in on the fun and experience horses affordably!
Happy Birthday to Haley, Ace, and Anna....we celebrated in style with pony cake.! See video.
