Brenda Warwick (on left) and her husband David (on right) probably have the only Equestrian Sweatshirts in the world that encourage both the Adrian College Bulldogs and Albion College Britons to do well. This is because son Robert (in the purple shirt) is Albion class of 2023 and son Gopher (in cowboy hat) is Adrian class of 2026. The Warwicks are seen here at 2023 IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky on May 7th. While Robert was on hand as support for Albion Gopher was entered twice on the final day of '23 Nationals, placing fourth in individual rookie western horsemanship and sixth in team level I western horsemanship a short time later. Last season Robert competed at 2022 Nationals which marked the first time ever that Albion advanced a full western team to Nationals. But in 2022-23 Adrian won Zone 6, Region 4 by ten points over Albion and it would be the Dawg's first trip to IHSA Nationals with a full western team.

It could be said that Kaitlyn Howe of the University of Findlay "leveled" the field at 2023 IHSA Nationals. From Ovid, Michigan Howe (on horse) is seen here in the winner's circle at Alltech Arena in Lexington on May 6th after winning the team level II horsemanship class on May 6th to close out her junior year. A day earlier Howe won the individual level I horsemanship class to go undefeated in her two '23 Nationals rides which coincidentelly were classes with 'level' in their names.

Between 2007 when Semifinals were first held and 2019 the University of Findlay was the Champion Team at each of the annual Semifinal events they competed in. However in 2022 (after two years without Semifinals due to the pandemic) Findlay was fifth at the Galva, Illinois semifinal to end their phenomenal run of thirteen consecutive wins. The school which finished third at that Semifinal came from the state of Michigan and can for now claim to be the only Zone 6 team ever to outscore Findlay at a Semifinal event. And it would also be the first time this school advanced a full western team through to IHSA Nationals...

Region 1: When the "Super Zones of Western" or Semifinals were launched in the Spring of 2007 the University of Findlay was one of the three hosts schools. Since then the Oilers have hosted additional Semifinals in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2019 and 2023. Not only has Findlay hosted the most Semifinal events of any IHSA program (though West Texas A & M is close) they won all eight of these meets. Findlay won their 2009 Semifinal by 15 points over runner-up West Virginia University. The first Oiler with a blue ribbon that weekend was the daughter of the head coach at that time. The second Findlay rider to claim a blue is now the Oiler's head coach!...

Region 2: Zone 6 has gone through more changes involving re-alignment and changes in geography than any other this century. On February 5, 2005 the University of Akron hosted the first of two shows in two days at Bradley Arena on the outskirts of Cincinnati. This story was actually about a Region 1 show when written but many of the teams present that day are now part of Region 2. A school known for a legendary Western program was about to clinch a Hunter Seat Region Title for the first time...

Region 3: Midway University finished third in the Western Team Competition at 2023 IHSA Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky. The Eagles placed second three times over the course of seven team classes with one of their riders taking two of the red ribbons...

Region 4: Over the years the University of Findlay has also hosted their share of Zones 6 Zones events. Prior to Findlay hosting the 2017 Zones show no Zone 6, Region 4 school had ever advanced a full hunter seat team through to an IHSA Nationals. It took ten tries (since Region 4 was born in the middle of 2007) but a school located in East Lansing, Michigan won a tiebreaker for second place to extend their season to Nationals in Lexington, Kentucky in May of '17...
