The weather was extremely nice at the Randolph-Macon College Equestrian Center on November 4th. Kinsey Brotman of the host Yellowjackets (on left, a senior from Virginia Beach, Virginia) did not compete in the show but schooled a horse named "Skittles" which teammate Mary Woodrum (on right) drew for limit flat. A 'super senior' from Richmond, Virginia, Woodrum won her limit flat to help the host school win 34-32 over both Liberty and Sweet Briar.

For the first time since the pandemic ended Sweet Briar College finds themselves out of first place within Region 4 headed into the winter break. However the Vixens are only four points out with three shows still to come. Seven Sweet Briar riders are qualified for Regionals so far in 2023-24, including Rachel Chard (on right, with head coach Lizzie Fisch). A sophomore from Avon, Connecticut, Chard placed fourth in intermediate flat shortly after this photo was taken on November 4th to clinch a place in the division at Regionals on February 24th.
Three schools in Region 4 have their own riding facility. Yet the school in fourth place headed into the winter break is only ten points out of first without such an advantage. Christopher Newport University head coach Katie Balding (on left) has the Captains only ten points behind Liberty, six behind Sweet Briar and a point behind Randolph-Macon after scoring 38 points at Foxtail Farm on November 5th to take high point team honors by 38-32 over Liberty. On the right is Emily Smith of the Captains, who qualified for Regionals in novice equitation at the October 7th William & Mary show.
Elizabeth Denecke of the College of William & Mary is seen here after winning her novice equitation class at the February 18, 2023 Sweet Briar show. The junior from Fredericksburg, Virginia needs four points in the division over the final three shows to qualify for 2024 Regionals. William & Mary is only 16 points behind Liberty, technically still in the race for a region title.
17 Region 4 riders qualified for Regionals during the fall of 2023 but only one has clinched not one but two rides at Regionals. She is Ann Camp of the University of Mary Washington, a senior from Smithfield, Virginia who has pointed out of both intermediate divisions. Camp is seen here in front of the live stream of the February 18, 2023 Sweet Briar show after winning her intermediate fences that day. The Eagles will host back-to-backs on February 3rd and 4th to start the new year.
Randolph-Macon College has yet to sit in first place this season but has yet to fall double digits from first place as well. One of their two regional qualifiers so far this season is Ruth Alexander (pictured), a sophomore from Louisa, Virginia whose third in novice equitation on November 4th took her up into the limits.
When you think Sweet Briar team colors you think pink, and if you look closely in the background you will notice the Sweet Briar team van is pink and the piping on Katelyn Jone's coat matches the van! A senior from Houston, Texas, Jones qualified for Regionals in limit fences over the November 4th/5th weekend.
After several months of posting a photo of Liberty University's Maggie Saunders with her Mother we switch that photo out for one of Saunders with her Father at the November 4th Randolph-Macon show. The Flames senior from Troy, Virginia re-took the lead in the Region 4 open rider standings at the November 5th Christopher Newport show while the Flames gained modest ground even in defeat to the host school that day. Over the final three shows Liberty will try to capture their first Region Title in seven years, Sweet Briar will try to make it six Region Titles in a row while Randolph-Macon, Christopher Newport and William & Mary will hope to win a Region Title for the first time. The seventh and final Region 4 Regular Season Show will be hosted by Liberty on February 17th (after this was originally posted, one more regular season show at Sweet Briar was added for February 18th).
