IHSA ZONE 2 - REGION 1

Photo
Western classes were held over the final three days of 2017 IHSA Nationals and Haley Ruffner of Alfred University competed at least once each of those days. On May 5th Ruffner was fourth in individual open western horsemanship. On May 6th she was ninth in the NRHA - sponsored individual open reining. And on May 7th when the results of the individual AQHA High Point Open Rider division were announced Ruffner had completed her sophomore year as the Reserve National Champion in the division. From Allegheny, New York Ruffner is seen here outside the back of AllTech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington following the awards ceremony which concluded 2017 Nationals.

Strange as it may seem this photo features Haley Ruffner's Mother - with a rider from another team! This is because Rose Stayer Ruffner (on right) is the Western Coach for Alfred State College. Haleigh Hurd of Alfred State (on left) won the individual open reining class at the Canyon, Texas Semifinal last March to advance to IHSA Nationals. Hurd finished her four years at Alfred State by placing sixth in the same division at Nationals on May 6th - three places higher than Haley Ruffner! To make things even more complicated Haleigh's grandfather Harry Hurd is part of the Western coaching staff at Alfred University. If you are paying close attention this means they essentially cancel each other out, with one relative helping the offspring of the other program.

The Ivy League holds a one-off show every April known today as the "All-Ivies." Cornell University hosted this show on April 23rd and one of many Big Red riders to win a class that day is Laura Vasquez-Bolanos (pictured). From Leesburg, Virginia, Vasquez-Bolanos won her beginner walk-trot-canter class. Cornell did what had never been done at an All Ivy show: They scored an immaculate 49 points (even the drop score was a first). Dartmouth College was reserve champion with 39 points. Meanwhile Vasquez-Bolanos had won her individual walk-trot class at Zone 2 Zones hosted by Skidmore College 15 days earlier. On May 5th she closed out her sophomore year in Ithaca with a sixth in individual walk-trot at Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky.

Another Region 1 rider to reach Nationals by way of Zone 2 Zones is Claudia Freeman of Rochester Institute of Technology (on left). From Webster, New York, Freeman had an outstanding freshman year, finishing second in the Region 1 hunter seat open rider standings. RIT head coach Gail Miller poses with Freeman prior to horse draw ahead of individual open over fences which opened 2017 IHSA Nationals. Though Freeman was second in the division at Zones on April 8th her combined Judge's score of '85' gave her the lead in the class on May 4th. After testing versus three other riders Freeman was awarded the first blue ribbon at 2017 Nationals, as the individual open over fences champion.

Seen here at a Cornell show during the 2015-16 season is Lauren Cole of Alfred University. A blue ribbon winner the day this photo was taken, Cole placed second in individual walk-trot-canter at Zone 2 Zones last April. Cole was the only Alfred University hunter seat rider to compete at 2017 Nationals.

Cornell University head coach Joanna Novakovic (on right) poses with Amanda Ko of the Big Red following the latter's ride in the over fences phase of the Cacchione Cup Competition at IHSA Nationals on May 5th. From Pound Ridge, New York Ko edged out Freeman 91-88 in the Region 1 hunter seat open rider standings to advance to Nationals and compete in the Cacchione. Though she was out of the ribbons at Nationals Ko won her final two Zones rides, winning a Cacchione class that was an exhibition and the team open flat class which concluded the event. The Big Red won a region title each of Ko's four seasons on campus, with three of them since Novakovic became head coach in the fall of 2014.
