IHSA ZONE 1 - REGION 3

Photo
In 2021-22 Mount Holyoke College qualified 15 different hunter seat riders for Regionals. Four of them made it through to IHSA Nationals on an individual basis, including Marlene Healey (on right, with Lyons head coach C.J. Law). Healey is seen here on November 16, 2019 when she won her first IHSA blue ribbon in novice equitation. The junior from Coventry, Connecticut will ride at Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on May 5th in that same novice division after having placed second in the division at Zone 1 Zones on April 9th.

At least 17 times this century the University of Massachusetts at Amherst has finished second in Region 3 hunter seat behind Mount Holyoke. This was the case again in 2021-22 and once again UMass had the second-most hunter seat Regional Qualifiers with ten including Molly Granahan (pictured). A senior from Princeton, New Jersey, Granahan is seen here at the Pre-Season Tournament of Champions invitational in Blacksburg, Virginia on September 25th. Granahan was the only Region 3 rider this season to point out of both intermediate divisions.

Ten teams took part in Region 3 hunter seat shows in 2021-22 and the school which placed sixth overall did so without any prior IHSA appearances. Worcester Polytechnic Institute might have been in the IHSA had Region 3 held shows in 2020-21 but with the pandemic wiping that out WPI had time to get organized. Not only did they make their debut this season WPI even hosted a show on March 6th. 37 people joined the team and 16 showed in their first season including Hailey Hurrell (pictured), a senior from Wakefield, Rhode Island who is the first (and so far only) WPI rider to qualify for Regionals. Hurrell pointed out of novice equitation, getting the 36 points needed over nine shows.
Photo
The other team from Worcester - Worcester State University - finished fourth overall. Two of the Lancers qualified for Regionals, including Alexis Zielonka (pictured). A senior coincidentally from Worcester, Massachusetts, Zielonka is seen here at the March 5th Mount Holyoke show after placing second in limit flat. By the end of the semester Zielonka pointed out of this division.
Photo
Likewise two Smith College riders qualified for Regionals, with one of them being Abigail Wuorinen (pictured). The junior from Palmer, Alaska (45 minutes from Anchorage) said that her last name is pronounced "Warn-en." Wuorinen also qualified for Regionals in limit flat. Smith finished third overall in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings, something the Pioneers have done more than 15 times this century.
Photo
Springfield College freshman Maggie Cyr (pictured) is no stranger to the Mount Holyoke College Equestrian Center. Cyr was a member of the Mount Holyoke College IEA Team for seven years before enrolling at nearby Springfield. From South Hadley, Massachusetts, Cyr is seen here at the March 5th Mount Holyoke show during which she placed second in both of her limit classes. It looks as though this photo was taken after her limit fences class but before her limit flat as only one red ribbon can be seen. Springfield finished 2021-22 in seventh place overall, eight points behind WPI.
Photo
Amherst College finished between "The Worcesters" in fifth place, 30 points ahead of WPI and four points behind Worcester State. Mammoths head coach Jennifer Wilda (on left) is seen here with Ariana Rodriguez, who was the only Amherst rider to qualify for Regionals. A sophomore from San Salvador, El Salvador, Rodriguez pointed out of limit fences during the spring semester.

When you think about communities around the USA that could be considered riding hot spots you might think of towns in Florida such as Ocala or Wellington or Tryon, North Carolina or the towns that host the HITS series. While it is true that the horse world flocks to these places at certain times of the year the municipality that annually produces the most IHSA riders is more densely populated. New York City, or more specifically the island of Manhattan, is mentioned by IHSA riders from around the country more often as their hometown than any other. One of the many riders from NYC to compete in 2021-22 is Ana Sanchez de Lozada of Williams College (on left). Seen here with Ephs head coach Lisa DeMayo, Sanchez de Lozada had just won her limit fences class when this photo was taken on March 5th. Only a freshman, Sanchez de Lozada could help Williams move up in the team standings over time. The Ephs were eighth overall this season in Region 3.

From West Suffield, Connecticut, Mount Holyoke College senior Kristina Lester (on right) rode three times at Zone 1 Zones on April 9th. Seen here with head coach C.J. Law way back on October 27, 2018 as a freshman, Lester was seventh in individual limit on the flat, sixth in individual intermediate over fences and third in team intermediate on the flat while the Lyons won the team competition and secured a place in the 2022 IHSA Nationals hunter seat team competition. It is hard to believe that coach Law won the IHSA's Lifetime Achievement Award back in 1998, as since that time Mount Holyoke has sent a full hunter seat team to Nationals on all but four occasions while Law claimed two National Champion Teams (in 2000 and 2006) to go with another championship (in 1986, her second season coaching the Lyons) over her first 14 seasons in South Hadley.
