The class of 1999 was the first class at Dartmouth to actually have a higher percentage of women than men. The Centennial Circle ensures a bright future for women at Dartmouth, and it is an honor to be part of such a strong group of women.
Megan Phillips Drury graduated class of 1999 from Dartmouth, where she was captain of the Equestrian team from 1997-1999. After graduation, Megan was selected to represent the United States on the Student Riding Nations Cup and World Championship teams for 5 years, traveling around the world competing in show jumping and Dressage against teams from eighteen different countries. As team chef, Megan lead her team to Nations Cup victories and World Championship titles in Show jumping and combined results. These competitions were held on a global scale, and the riders had to compete on horses provided by the host countries. In other words, riders had 2 minutes to figure out each different horse they were placed on before entering the show ring in all levels of jumping and dressage throughout each competition.
While training for the ISRA Nations Cup Team, Megan worked in New York City on the Absolut Vodka campaign. One of the many highlights was helping to create the life-size bottled shaped fully furnished studio apartment that hung high above the street in Soho. Megan also completed her Masters in Art Therapy from New York University.
Megan currently resides in Millbrook, New York with her husband, Philip Drury, and their three children, Juliet (8), Alexander (6), and Isabel (4). Philip, who played rugby for England U21 and NYAC in New York, works for Citibank and enjoys bringing the game of rugby to Millbrook through popular clinics. Megan trains horses at their farm in Millbrook. Their three children rode before they could walk, love rugby like their dad, enjoy running, play soccer, practice karate, tear up the ski slopes, and make life exciting.
