Through the first two Region 3 hunter seat shows Katie Steiner (pictured) narrowly leads the open rider standings. One of many Centenary University riders from California on their currrent roster, Steiner is seen here with her ribbons earned at the October 29th USMA show held at Centenary. From Pleasanton, California, Steiner's 23 points have her a point ahead of teammate Grace Weidner (not pictured) with three more fall shows scheduled.

It is hard to believe but only the current seniors have any recollection of riding in an IHSA show at the former Briarwood Farm in Readington, New Jersey. The last-ever Region 3 show at that location was in November of 2013, and one of the riders we photographed that day is Kelsey Stevens of Stevens Institute of Technology. From Princeton, New Jersey, Stevens is seen here as a freshman waiting to compete in the intermediate divisions. Fast-forward to this season and Stevens is currently third in the Region 3 hunter seat open rider standings with 20 points (And on opening day the Ducks were reserve high point team with 29 points). If she finishes atop the open rider standings perhaps they will name a school after her!
Though she is a sophomore she is new to the William Paterson University team this season. She is Kianna Lusher (on left, with head coach Hayley Rooney) and through two shows Lusher has 19 open-level points. From Hawthorne, New Jersey, this puts Lusher in fourth place in the Region 3 hunter seat open rider standings but only four points from the top spot. The Pioneers will host the fourth show of the fall on November 12th (originally planned for October 1st).
After spending a year abroad in Scotland, Caroline Coleman (on right) is having as good a season as anyone on the Vassar College team. Seen here with head coach Michelle Clopp the senior from Park City, Utah was third in beginner walk-trot-canter when Vassar co-hosted with Marist at Crosswinds Farm on September 24th. Then on October 29th Coleman appeared to repeat that ribbon but was actually second thanks to a mix-up when the results were announced. Vassar will be in action again at Crosswinds Farm on Sunday, November 6th, but with SUNY - New Paltz hosting.
Speaking of the State University of New York at New Paltz the Hawks have a new assistant coach in Rebecca Jacobson (on right, with co-head coach Susan Clark on left and freshman intermediate rider Dominique Gago center). Jacobson is a former IHSA rider, having competed for Alfred University for whom she was also an assistant coach until recently. Gago placed second in intermediate over fences moments before this photo was taken on October 29th.
We showed you Stevens at the final Region 3 Readington, NJ Briarwood show, so how about a photo of Drew University's Lizzy Grein at the first Region 3 Ringoes, New Jersey Briarwood show? When Region 3 opened their 2014-15 season it was at the current incarnation of Briarwood Farm, known also as Black River Farm. From Manorville, New York, Grein made her IHSA debut that day, and on October 29th of this season Grein's third in advanced walk-trot-canter qualified her for Regionals.
At least three (and perhaps more) United States Military Academy riders have qualified for Regionals so far in 2016-17. Seen here at the November 2015 Marist show at Crosswinds Farm, Katie Silecchia of USMA (on right, with co-coach Peter Cashman) pointed out of advanced walk-trot-canter at that same facility on September 24th. The Black Knights scored 25 points for fourth place that day and followed it up with an even more impressive 31 at their home show on October 29th.
However the most impressive Region 3 team so far might be Marist College. The Red Foxes co-hosted with Vassar at their home base (Crosswinds) in LaGrangeville, New York on September 24th where sophomore Blake Portmann (pictured) won both of her intermediate classes to earn high point rider honors. From Holmdel, New Jersey, Portmann was yet another sophomore making her IHSA debut that day. With 15 new riders this season Marist has more depth than usual, and on opening day the Red Foxes were 41-29 winners over Stevens Institute while Centenary was third with 29 points. It is early and Centenary has rallied (and ultimately won the region by a wide margin) before but Marist did open many eyes with their superlative riding on September 24th.
