In 2021-22 the University of Lynchburg trained out of Liberty University's facilities and on February 27th the Hornets hosted at Liberty. Dakota Banks (pictured), a freshman from Scranton, Pennsylvania was the third of three Lynchburg riders to win a class that day. Banks took first in limit fences, a division he also won at Zone 4 Zones on April 9th to advance through to IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on May 5th. On February 27th the Hornets were high point team by a 37-34 margin over Hollins. After over 40 years training in other school's facilities Lynchburg will move into what is currently known as Patrick Henry Family Services Farm in June of 2022. Lynchburg has an exclusive, long-term agreement to operate out of this facility.

Virginia Tech will have two riders at IHSA Nationals. Arianna Safire (not pictured) was second at Zones in individual introductory equitation to qualify while Madeline McManus (on right, with Hokies head coach Beth Sheely) was second in the Cacchione Cup Competition. A senior from Baltimore, Maryland, McManus will compete against 23 other riders at Nationals for the right to be called the number one IHSA hunter seat rider for the 2021-22 season.
Hollins University brought horses to the February 27th Lynchburg show, and one of the Hollins riders to school those horses is Morgan DeWitt (pictured). From Williamsburg, Virginia, DeWitt finished her junior year by placing third in individual novice equitation at Zone 4 Zones in Laurinburg, North Carolina on April 9th. Hollins came up just short of Washington and Lee University in the Region 2 team standings, going into the final regular season show nine points behind and able to make up seven points that day. But with riders like DeWitt back for another season 2022-23 could be their year.
If you count two riders as tied for third in the Region 2 open rider standings then Kacey Brown of Bridgewater College (on left) finished fourth overall in those standings. While Jerry Schurink is still part of the Bridgewater riding program (he coaches their recently-formed NCEA team) the Eagles have a new IHSA coach in 2021-22. Melanie Vest (on right) is herself a former Bridgewater rider, having graduated with the class of 2015. The Eagles were sixth overall in the Region 2 team standings.
James Madison University was seventh in Region 2 this season. From Milford, Pennsylvania, Morgan Johns of the Dukes is seen here between her limit rides at the February 27th Lynchburg show. The JMU senior was fourth in limit fences and fifth in limit flat during the show made up of only 12 total classes.
If you turn the clock back to 2018-19 Margaret Cornwell (on left) coached two IHSA teams in completely different regions. However starting in the fall of 2019 Cornwell's Ferrum College team was moved from Region 5 into Region 2 which meant Cornwell would have both of her teams at the same IHSA show. Cornwell's Ferrum team finished eighth overall in Region 2 during 2021-22. From Ridgeway, Virginia, Ferrum senior Casey Craddock is seen here with Cornwell before placing second in the introductory equitation class which closed out the February 27th Lynchburg show.
Roanoke College is Cornwell's other team and the Maroons finished ninth in Region 2 this season. From New Canaan, Connecticut, Emily Wasser of Roanoke holds up a red ribbon she won in the first of two sections of novice equitation at that same February 27th Lynchburg show.
We already told you that Hollins was second overall and which Region 2 teams ended the season sixth through ninth as well. Virginia Tech was third, Lynchburg was fourth and the University of Virginia was fifth. The Cavaliers have a new show coach in 2021-22 and she is 2019 Emory and Henry College graduate Madison Bonner (on left). On the right is UVA's Allie Marcotte, a senior from Williamsburg, Virginia who was one of four Cavaliers to qualify for Regionals. Due to the pandemic and the limited nature of Region 2 shows the University of Virginia was one of only two Region 2 schools to send four different riders to Regionals, including Marcotte in novice equitation.
Region Champion Washington and Lee University had never won a Region Title headed into the 2021-22 season. The Generals took the lead through three shows and never gave it back to become the sixth Region 2 team this century to capture a region title (Note: In 2018 Virginia Tech captured a Region Title as a member of Region 5 but is still looking for their first such title as a member of Region 2). The Generals also had the most Regional Qualifiers with seven, including Jillian Rosenwasser (pictured). Seen here at the February 23, 2020 University of Virginia show, Rosenwasser qualified for Regionals in open fences. Though the junior from New York City was not an individual entry at Zones Rosenwasser was part of the team competition, placing second in team open over fences in Laurinburg on April 9th.
