Emory and Henry College did something very rare at 2019 IHSA Nationals. The Wasps scored at least two points in each of the eight hunter seat team classes. From Cogan Station, Pennsylvania, Abigail McCoy (on left, with assistant coach Lisa Moosemuller-Terry) was eighth in team intermediate fences to kick off day two of 2019 Nationals on May 3rd of that year. The scoring system is different at IHSA Nationals events, with first place ten points, second nine, third eight all the way down to a half point for tenth place. Emory and Henry was chased for much of the show by Savannah College of Art and Design, yet the Wasps stayed ahead to win 50-45 over the Bees. McCoy pointed out of intermediate fences during the 2019-20 season.

Seen here from left to right at the February 9, 2019 Emory and Henry College show are Victoria Latham, head coach Michelle Hargreaves and Sean Muir of Wake Forest University. Both Latham and Muir were seniors in 2019-20 and both qualified for Regionals. Though we don't have the results from Regionals on February 23rd we can tell you that Latham would have shown in both intermediate flat and open fences while Muir was entered in both open divisions. The Demon Deacons would have had eleven rides at the February 23rd regional show, the most of any Region 5 school this season.
Averett University had ten rides at Regionals, the second-most of any school in the region. One of the ten rides belonged to Sullivan Short (pictured). From Oxford, North Carolina, Short is seen here after winning her walk-trot class as it was called at the time during the February 9, 2019 Emory and Henry show. Short pointed out of the division this season, with the division now named Introductory Equitation.
We should emphasize that Region 5 did in fact hold their Regional Show ahead of March 12th, which was the date the IHSA wisely cancelled all remaining shows for the 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus. Another of the riders who competed at Regionals on February 23rd is Allyson Jones of Western Carolina University. From Cumming, Georgia, Jones (on right, with Catamounts head coach Julia Collins) is seen here at that same 2/9/19 Emory and Henry show after she won her intermediate fences. However in 2019-20 Jones competed at Regionals in the intermediate flat.
From Beaver Dam, Virginia, Rebecca Pagnini of Emory and Henry College is seen here waiting to compete in team walk-trot-canter at 2019 IHSA Nationals on 5/3/19. Pagnini finished her freshman year with a sixth in the division. On the left is 2019 E and H graduate Francisco Caba Guil, who placed fourth in team open over fences a day later. This season Pagnini had one of the Wasp's eight rides at Regionals. Pagnini pointed out of what is now called Novice Equitation.
Gosh the light was coming through the windows with full force when we took this photo of Kristi Clapp of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro at the February 9th, 2019 Emory and Henry show. Coincidentally from Greensboro, North Carolina, Clapp went to Regionals this season in limit flat.
Three High Point University riders qualified for 2020 Regionals and one of them is Julianna Gentile (pictured). From Manchester, Connecticut, Gentile qualified in limit flat. She is seen here at - what else - the February 9, 2019 Emory and Henry show after having placed second in what is now limit flat but was novice flat at that time.
It is hard to believe but six years ago right now Virginia Intermont College was still in operation and Emory and Henry had yet to ever join the IHSA. Yet in 2014 VI folded, Emory and Henry acquired their equestrian center, accepted several VI students as transfers, and five years later the Wasps were IHSA Champion hunter seat team! One of the riders who played a huge part in the rise of the E and H program is Bobbie Adsit (on left). From Montpelier, Virginia, Adsit won the final hunter seat team class at 2019 IHSA Nationals, earning the blue ribbon in team open flat on 5/4/19. This was the third season in a row that Adsit had competed at IHSA Nationals and she stood a decent chance of making it four straight had 2020 Nationals taken place. Adsit was qualified to compete at Zones in the Cacchione class as was Emory and Henry entered in the Zone 4 Zones team competition. We should mention that Wasps head coach Heather Richardson (on right) has had at least one Emory and Henry rider entered at IHSA Nationals each of the five full seasons the team has competed within the organization. Richardson was also a member of the Virginia Intermont College coaching staff, having been involved with many of that school's region champions (and a few National Champion teams too).
