who we are

The First Black Woman-led Equestrian firm

MQ Equestrian is a division of Method Q, LLC. Its creation was inspired with the specific focus of embracing and impacting diversity in equestrian sport. In its current make up, the equestrian sport exists as a well gate-kept space, one in which minority populations were formerly excluded from. Even now, our riders only exist as a remarkably underrepresented group. Our ultimate aspiration for both our riders and ourselves is to attain our seat at the table. We seek to create spaces for those that come after us, so as to see themselves as trailblazers - that we so often have to be.
