Goucher College captured their tenth consecutive hunter seat Region Title in 2021-22, finishing 67 points ahead of George Mason University in what was only a 40 point lead prior to the Gophers' scoring a perfect 49 at their March 5th co-hosted home show. Region 1 lost two shows to weather issues, and taking into account the lost pandemic year a much smaller than usual number of riders qualified for Region 1 Regionals. From Dakar, Senegal, Goucher senior Halle Taylor is seen here at the February 26th George Washington/George Mason show during which she placed fourth in limit flat to become one of four Gophers to qualify for Regionals this season. Taylor's final undergraduate ride came on April 9th when she was seventh in individual limit flat at Zone 4 Zones in Laurinburg, North Carolina.

Goucher did not go undefeated during the regular season as George Washington University edged them out 35-34 at Timely Manor on November 6th. George Washington head coach Cindy Newberry (on left) saw the Colonials finish third overall for the year only five points behind George Mason. One of four George Washington riders to qualify for Regionals is Sara Currie (on right), a senior from Singapore who is also Captain of the Colonials this season. Currie pointed out of intermediate fences. Photo
The University of Maryland at College Park was the fourth and final team to break the 100 point barrier over five shows. One of two Region 1 teams coached by Star Dailey (on right), the Terps finished with 104 points. Like Goucher and George Washington exactly four College Park undergraduate riders qualified for Regionals including Gabrielle Williams (on left). A senior from Potomic, Maryland, Williams was one of seven Region 1 riders to qualify in the novice division.
There are multiple University of Maryland campuses. The College Park location is the main campus and the only other Maryland campus with an IHSA team is in Baltimore County. Coached by Erica Haschert (on right) the University of Maryland at Baltimore County finished sixth overall in the region which is one of the Retrievers' highest finishes in program history. On the left is Lila Marino of the Retrievers, a junior from Princess Anne, Maryland who qualified for Regionals in limit flat.
Kara Peterson (on right, with head coach Reilly Cook) is the only member of the St. Mary's College of Maryland team to qualify for Regionals in 2021-22. The junior from Wiliamsburg, Virginia is another of the seven Region 1 riders to point out of novice equitation.
From Easton, Maryland, Towson University senior Kassidy Danley (pictured) not only qualified for Regionals in both intermediate divisions she even made it through to Zones. Danley was sixth in both intermediate flat and fences at Zones on April 9th.
Second place George Mason University had the most Regional Qualifiers of any Region 1 team in 2021-22 with six. One of them, Melody Jackson (pictured), joined Towson's Danley as the only Region 1 riders with two undergraduate rides at Regionals. The senior from Leesburg, Virginia qualified in both limit divisions. Jackson, who won her intermediate flat on February 26th at Timely Manor when this photo was taken, got through to Zones in limit fences where she placed eighth in the division.
There were two sections of pre-novice equitation at the February 26th George Mason/George Washington show, and the rider who placed second in section A that day is Alexa Grey of Hood College (on right, with her Mother). A junior from Frederick, Maryland, Grey was nearly into novice with the red ribbon and will hopefully point out in 2022-23.
With only five Region 1 shows held a grand total of one open rider earned enough points to qualify for Regionals in either open division. Goucher's Cole Jackson (not pictured) had that honor by qualifying in open flat. While Jackson led the Region 1 open rider standings with 56 points the rider in third place has three more chances to qualify. She is American University freshman Lily Oelschlager (pictured) and her 27 combined open flat and fences points put her behind only Hannah Meyer of George Washington (another freshman, with 37 points) and Jackson (a junior). The big question for 2022-23 is how many Region 1 shows will be scheduled and will the weather play nice?
