Metropolitan Equestrian Team partners with "The Plaid Horse" and Clarkson University to provide a unique collegiate experience.
With your donation, MET students can have an incredibly unique opportunity to participate in various equestrian-focused online college courses offered through Clarkson University. This course is open to all interested MET students in grades 9-12.
Students will earn valuable insights into equestrian career opportunities, network and make connections with industry professionals, and boost their resumes and college applications. Upon completion of the course, students will also receive college credits to take into their chosen university or college careers, along with "The Plaid Horse" Certification of Equestrian Studies.
Led by Professor Piper Klemm, Ph.D., these courses will cover such topics as:
- Grit, toughness, and contemporary principles of equestrian coaching
- English riding, its history, culture, and continued evolution
- Business, gender, and economics in the equestrian industry
Prof. Klemm received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 2012 and became publisher of "The Plaid Horse" in 2014.
Scholarship programs like these are core to MET's mission, and we couldn't be more thrilled to partner with our friends at "The Plaid Horse" to create this opportunity for our students.
