Several schools around the country switched regions for the 2018-19 season. Zone 1, Region 2 saw Endicott College move south into Zone 1, Region 4 while Northeastern University moved north from Region 4 into Region 2. The Huskies have faired well in their new surroundings, sitting in third place through six fall shows (Not bad for a team that only joined the IHSA in the fall of 2013). And oh yes Northeastern has five riders qualified for Regionals through November 3rd. One of them is Lauren Pippins (pictured), a senior from Ipswich, Massachusetts who is qualified in open flat.

Five of the eleven Region 2 schools reached the 100 point plateau during the fall of 2018. Sitting in fifth place with 115 points is Colby-Sawyer College. Coached by Pam Payson (on left), the Chargers sent two riders through to Regionals through November 3rd, with one of them being senior Margaret Kinder (on right). From Haverhill, New Hampshire, Kinder will show in the novice fences division when Regionals take place at the Dartmouth Riding Center on March 30th.
History was made on November 3rd when Ronni Gassib became the first rider in the brief history of the Norwich University team to earn Reserve High Point Rider honors. From Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, Gassib (pictured) won her intermediate fences while placing second in novice flat to earn 12 points and tie Lauren Ecock of the University of Vermont (not pictured) who also had a first and a second that day. Ecock won a question-and-answer session to earn high point. However with Gassib being a freshman she should have a few more chances to earn high point while riding for a Norwich team that only joined the IHSA in 2017.
Middlebury College assistant coach Jill Wade (on right) poses with Pharibe Pope of the Panthers during the November 3rd Dartmouth show. From Baltimore, Maryland Pope is qualified for Regionals in both novice divisions. Middlebury is in sixth place overall with 90 points headed into their home show on March 16th.
It rained off and on during the November 3rd Dartmouth show which was held entirely indoors. During a moment when it was not raining University of Maine head coach Gail McCormick (on left) and senior Jamie Pratt stepped out of the stall area for this photo. From Barrington, New Hampshire Pratt is qualified for Regionals in the novice fences division.
Kayla Durant of Castleton University is seen here standing in the current viewing area of the Dartmouth Riding Center indoor. From Tinmouth, Vermont Durant is qualified for Regionals in the walk-trot-canter division, making the Castleton senior one of thirteen riders qualified for the post-season in this division prior to the March 16th Middlebury show.
This photo is from the March 4, 2018 Endicott College show (when Endicott was still in Region 2). From Raleigh, North Carolina Bates College senior Taylor Wilson is seen here prior to winning her novice flat class that day. Wilson qualified for 2019 Regionals in both novice flat and intermediate fences.
How about another photo from that same Endicott show? Sarah Harbinson of the University of New Hampshire (on left) poses with Wildcats head coach Christina Keim after a fine ride that produced a first in novice fences. A senior from Ellicott City, Maryland, Harbinson is qualified for 2019 Regionals in both novice fences and intermediate flat. Coach Keim pulled UNH into third place last season without ever having the services of a walk-trot rider!
After 29 seasons as Dartmouth College head coach Sally Batton (on left) will be retiring following the conclusion of the 2018-19 season. Dartmouth won four Region 2 Region Titles in that time and was a top-four team in the region every year since 1999. During the November 3rd show which the Big Green hosted Batton said there are plans to expand the indoor ring at the Dartmouth Riding Center. There will be a new viewing area which will mean the current viewing area will be part of the actual ring for riding during IHSA shows. Batton is seen here with Sophia Kocher of Dartmouth, a sophomore from Dover, Massachusetts who is qualifed for Regionals in walk-trot-canter. Batton and Kocher are standing in the horse holding area of the indoor and this spot will also be used for actual riding during the shows once the expansion is completed.
