From Rehoboth, Massachusetts, Emily Blanchard of Wheaton College (on right, with head coach Carly Fisher) is seen here in the stands of AllTech Arena in Lexington, Kentucky on May 4th prior to competing in individual novice flat on day one of 2017 IHSA Nationals. Though she was out of the ribbons that day Blanchard bested nine others to win individual novice flat at Zone 1 Zones in South Hadley, Massachusetts on April 8th.

To help publicize the 50th Anniversary of the IHSA during the 2016-17 season the organization asked riders to come up with a design for their show programs that would celebrate the occasion. Eventually two designs were chosen, and one of them was created by Kelly Thies of Bridgewater State University. From Cranston, Rhode Island Thies poses with her creation during Bridgewater State's show at Reunion Farm last March 12th. Thies's design was the only one of the two to incorporate both English and Western riders into the image. Also Thies gave schools the option to use stars and stripes straight from the U.S. Flag into the number 50 or to use a gold coloring instead (though some printed the cover in black and white). As far as her riding goes, Thies qualified for Regionals in novice flat.
Several Region 4 schools had one rider entered at 2017 Zone 1 Zones. From Hanover, Massachusetts, Talia Flamos (pictured) was the only Brandeis University rider to place inside the top two at Regionals. On April 8th Flamos was tenth at Zones in individual intermediate over fences. Brandeis and Northeastern are set to co-host the Region 4 2017-18 season opener at August Farm in Hollison.
While most of the Region 4 riders who competed at Zones were seniors (such as Blanchard and Flamos), Lilian Gjertsson of Tufts University (pictured) was from the opposite end of the spectrum. From Seattle, Washington, Gjertsson is seen here after winning her walk-trot class at the March 12th Bridgewater State show to qualify for Regionals. One of only two Tufts riders who advanced to Zones, Gjertsson concluded her freshman year with a seventh in individual walk-trot on April 8th.
From Littleton, Massachusetts, Nina Fultz of Stonehill College is seen here inside the Reunion Farm office after winning her novice fences class on March 12th. It is not clear if Fultz pointed out of the division on this day or at the final show of the season a few weeks later. It is known that Fultz finished four years as a Sky Hawk with a tenth in individual novice fences at Zones on April 8th.
A trip down memory lane! Northeastern University competed in their first IHSA show ever during the month of October 2013, so those in the class of '17 could claim the team signed on with their arrival on campus. One member of the Northeastern class of '17 is Anne Halverstadt (on left), who is seen here with then-head coach Ashley Pimentel during the November 2015 Wellesley/Wheaton show. On April 8th of 2017 Halverstadt won the individual walk-trot-canter at Zones. Then on May 4th Halverstadt was tenth at IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky in the same division. This made Halverstadt the only Region 4 undergraduate rider to earn a top ten ribbon at Nationals.
Seen here at the January 21st Winter Tournament of Champions invitational in Weyer's Cave, Virginia, Clare Bornstein of Boston University went on to represent Region 4 at Nationals in the Cacchione Cup Competition. While finishing on top of the Region 4 open rider standings was her top individual accomplishment over four seasons with the Terriers it should be noted that Boston University won their first Region Title in 16 years during Bornstein's senior year. This marked the third time BU had won their region, having done so even earlier in 1992 while still a member of Zone 1, Region 2.
