Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute had never won a show prior to opening day at Hunters' Rein Stable. The Engineers pulled off one of the bigger surprises of the 2019-20 season by earning high point team honors at the Hartwick show, besting both Skidmore and Morrisville State by a 38-34 score to briefly lead the Region 3 hunter seat team standings. Leading the way for RPI that day was sophomore Emily Ashburn (on left, with head coach Megan Rogers), who won both her intermediate flat and limit fences classes to help the Engineers to high point team honors.

Morrisville State College tied Skidmore for reserve on opening day and has since settled into second place. However the Mustangs nearly tied Skidmore a second time, falling by only 42-41 at their second home show on November 10th. Hunter seat coach (and former Mustang) Erin Dunn poses with Jennifer Capone (on left), who is one of five Morrisville hunter seat riders qualified for Regionals through November 23rd. A senior from Old Bridge, New Jersey, Capone is qualified in both intermediate divisions.
It is only her second season on the Colgate team yet Claudia Tarrant (pictured) is a senior. Hailing from Colchester, Vermont, Tarrant had a very good day at the November 23rd Skidmore show, winning her intermediate fences while finishing second in intermediate flat. The Raiders tied Hartwick College for reserve high point team that day with 29 points each. Colgate sits in third place in the Region 3 hunter seat team standings headed into the mid-season break.
From Pleasant Valley, New York, Ashlyn Weidner (center, with her parents) is one of three Hartwick College riders qualified for Regionals. The Hawk sophomore is qualified in limit flat and goes into the winter break very close in limit fences. Hartwick went through a rebuilding year in 2018-19 but after their 29 point performance on November 23rd the Hawks are tied for fourth place with RPI in the region's hunter seat standings at 144 points each.
With the tie for fourth place team overall Oneonta State College can tell the world they sit in fifth place. Oneonta head coach Joyce Northrup is seen here with Alyssa Mania of the Red Dragons. From Saratoga Springs, New York, Mania (on right) is the only Oneonta rider qualified for Regionals so far. Mania won her limit fences class on opening day to secure her place at Regionals the last Saturday in March.
The Albany Great Danes have four riders qualified for Regionals including Lauren L'Herminier in limit fences. From West Nyack, New York (a community in Rockland County where drivers enter the new Mario Cuomo bridge to head east across the Hudson River towards New York City, New England and even Westchester County), L'Herminier says her name is pronounced "Lemon-Yay." Coached by Tracy Pedersen (to the right of L'Herminier) Albany easily had their best day of the season so far on November 10th, when the Great Danes scored 31 points to finish behind only Skidmore and host Morrisville State.
Rocio "Rose" Figueroa (on left) was not entered in the November 23rd Skidmore show but was on hand at the Van Lennep riding center to watch. Her Keuka College teammate Maisey Pautz (on right) was entered and like Figueroa is now qualified for Regionals. From Elmira, New York, Pautz pointed out of intermediate flat that day to join Figueroa, from Utica, New York, who placed third four times in a row from October 26th through November 10th in introductory equitation to punch her ticket to the post-season.
One can major in Therapeutic Horsemanship at the State University of New York at Cobleskill and one of many who currently majors in that subject is Connor Ashley (on right). From Otego, New York Ashley is seen here with hunter seat head coach Ray Whelihan after winning the last class of the day on November 23rd which was the second of two sections of introductory equitation (formerly known as beginner walk-trot).
Skidmore hosted and won the second hunter seat show of the season on November 2nd with 45 points and three weeks later hosted the fifth show of the season and scored 43 points. At the November 23rd show Melanie Allison of the Thoroughbreds (pictured) was one of three Skidmore riders to win twice that day. A senior from Mansfield, Massachusetts, Allison won her intermediate fences and limit flat classes to join teammates Nina Shilling and Sydney Jasny in the ride-off for high point rider which Jasny won. Though most of the riders from the 2018 IHSA National Champion team have graduated this group of Thoroughbreds has jumped out to the same kind of lead as in recent seasons. Also 11 of the 25 undergraduate classes held on November 23rd were won by Skidmore riders (and a Skidmore alum, Caitlyn Fagan, won the alumni fences).
