Only one Region 5 rider won an individual class at 2023 Zone 4 Zones in Towson, Maryland on April 1st and she is Emily Ann Wright of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (on left). After placing seventh in individual intermediate over fences earlier in the day Wright was first in individual intermediate on the flat. The junior from High Point, North Carolina poses with Spartans head coach Allison Townley prior to writing out some thank-you notes. Next up is one more individual intermediate flat class at IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky on May 4th.

Goucher College hosted Zone 4 Zones for the first time since 2015. Back in '15 it snowed so the Gophers took precautions in case the weather acted up. And indeed it did, with high winds and heavy rain early on followed by high winds, sunshine and temps in the mid-70's. High Point University head coach Cathy Schlaeppi (on left) poses with Margaret Junkin of the Panthers under the temporary canopy where the horses were held most of the day. One of four High Point riders to compete at 2023 Zone 4 Zones, Junkin finished her sophomore year by placing third in individual intermediate over fences.
While this writer has referred to himself as "Stat Man" Western Carolina University head coach Julia Collins (on left) refers to me as "Mr. Happy." Collins poses with Lauren Moon of the Catamounts under the canopy after the junior from Raleigh, North Carolina placed fifth in individual limit over fences at Zone 4 Zones on April 1st.
If you remove the two seasons where covid prevented IHSA Nationals events then Emory and Henry College has won the past two IHSA Nationals hunter seat team championships. However on April 1st host Goucher College won Zone 4 Zones with the Wasps taking second place. This still means Emory and Henry advanced a full hunter seat team through to Lexington, Kentucky to try and win a third consecutive title. Sierra Smith, a sophomore from Olathe, Kansas is seen here after winning team limit over fences which gave Emory and Henry a 19-17 lead on Goucher through the over fences divisions.
