Only two riders from Region 2 qualified to compete at 2019 IHSA Nationals last season, and both of them competed for the University of New Hampshire. On the right is Amanda Terbrusch, who finished the 2018-19 season with an eighth in individual novice flat at Nationals in Syracuse, New York on May 2nd. On the left is Sarah Harbinson, who was third in individual novice flat and tenth in individual novice fences that same day at Nationals. Both riders are seen here in the stands at the Exposition Center on May 2nd with Wildcats head coach Christina Keim, who saw seven of her UNH riders qualify for Regionals in 2018-19. This was one more than any other school within the region last season.

Over the past 20 seasons the Region 2 school with the most region titles is easily the University of Vermont with 12. And Madeleine Austin (on right) has been the head coach for all 12, including the twelfth title captured in 2018-19. Austin is seen here at Zone 1 Zones last April 6th with Mary Caruso. From Litchfield, Connecticut, Caruso had just won the team novice flat. This would turn out to be the Cattamount's only blue ribbon of the day during the annual close Zone 1 Zones team competition.
After 29 seasons Dartmouth College head coach Sally Batton (on right) retired at the end of the 2018-19 season. The last show with an IHSA connection in which Batton coached the Big Green was the annual All-Ivy League horse show hosted by Cornell University on April 14th. And the last rider to win a class under Batton is Anna Dodson (on left). From Portland, Oregon, Dodson won the second of three sections of walk-trot that day. Cornell, usually a safe bet in their own arena, won 38-31 with Dartmouth reserve high point team in Batton's finale.
In only their third season of IHSA competition Norwich University was one of five Region 2 teams with at least one rider who competed at Zones on April 6th. From Holliston, Massachusetts, Emily Lewis (on left) is seen here with her sister after winning her walk-trot-canter class at the November 3, 2018 Dartmouth show. Lewis finished her junior year with a seventh in the same division at Zones on April 6th, and it was no mean feat to get there (fourteen riders at Regionals in the walk-trot-canter with only two advancing through to Zones).
The University of New England had two of the fourteen individual walk-trot-canter regional qualifiers last season and one of them is Kathryn Willer (on right). From Bedford, New Hampshire, Willer is seen here with UNE head coach Jackie Blackwell before competing in the division at the November 3rd Dartmouth show.
This photo is from the March 4, 2018 Endicott College show (when Endicott was still in Region 2). From Windsor, Maine, Jordan Bowie of the University of Maine (pictured) went to 2019 Regionals in the novice flat division.
Kylie Harris's parents came down from Lyndonville, Vermont (30 miles from the Canadian border) to see their daughter (center) win her walk-trot-canter class at that same Endicott show in early 2018. The following season Harris went to regionals in the division and was one of two Castleton University riders to compete at Regionals at Dartmouth College on March 30th.
You would think we have a photo of all 14 riders who went to 2019 Region 2 Regionals at Dartmouth in the walk-trot-canter division. Amy Stockburger of Colby-Sawyer College (on right) is another of the 14. From East Hampton, Connecticut, Stockburger is seen here with Mustangs head coach Pam Payson after winning her walk-trot-canter class at that same March 2018 Endicott show. Colby-Sawyer finished fifth in the region in 2018-19 with 139 points.
Another team that finished in the 100's last season was Middlebury College with 117. Francesca Napoli of the Panthers (pictured) started with the team in the fall of 2017, then went abroad for a semester before returning in the fall of 2018 and qualifying for Regionals in the walk-trot division. From Mendham, New Jersey, Napoli was one of six Middlebury riders to qualify for Regionals last season.
Between the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons Northeastern University moved from Zone 1, Region 4 to Zone 1, Region 2 while Endicott College moved from Zone 1, Region 2 to Zone 1, Region 4. In their first season heading north the Howlin' Huskies came in third place overall for their best year-end showing since joining the IHSA in the fall of 2013. On November 3rd Noah Geslao (on left, with head coach Tammy Hickok) won his novice fences class and qualified for Regionals in the process. Northeastern will co-host the fifth Region 2 show of the season with Colby-Sawyer on October 27th.
