Seen here at horse draw for the first class held at 2018 IHSA Nationals is Drew Arnold of St. Mary-of-the-Woods College. From Carmel, Indiana, Arnold moved up from seventh overall in the Region 1 hunter seat open rider standings in 2019 to first in 2020. Arnold would have been one of five riders who would have competed at Zone 7 Zones in the Cacchione classes had the coronavirus not forced the cancellation of all IHSA shows held after March 8th. Arnold was only a freshman when he was photographed during horse draw (he was out of the top ten in individual open fences at 2018 Nationals but had won the division at Zone 7 Zones several weeks earlier) so he still has one more opportunity at the post-season in 2020-21.

For the 2018-19 season Indiana University finished third overall in the Zone 7, Region 1 hunter seat team standings, only 15 points behind St. Mary-of-the-Woods and 30 behind region champion Purdue. The Hoosiers had the leading hunter seat open rider, as Megan Rutherford (on right) finished one point ahead of Taylor Valencia of St. Mary-of-the-Woods. From Chicago, Rutherford won the Zone 7 Zones Cacchione Cup class versus four others to advance to IHSA Nationals in Syracuse, New York. Seen here inside the new Exposition Center at the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse on May 3, 2019 with Hoosiers coach Mary Evert, Rutherford closed out her senior year by placing ninth in the field of 24 riders in the Cacchione Cup Competition.
If you showed in the individual novice western horsemanship division at 2019 IHSA Nationals then you can say that - right now - you rode in the most recent class held at an IHSA Nationals event. One of the 12 riders who can make that claim is Emmaline Klute of Purdue University (on left, with Boilermakers western coach Angela Henry). From LaPorte, Indiana, Klute won the individual novice western class at the Logan, Utah Semifinal to advance to IHSA Nationals where she placed fifth in the division on May 5th of last year. In recent years the individual novice western division has concluded the four-day competition, the last of 34 divisions which start on a Thursday morning and end on a Sunday afternoon. This would not have changed in 2019-20, though the division name would have. Novice western is now known as "Level I" western horsemanship.
The University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign hunter seat team finished fourth overall within Region 1 in 2018-19. One of the Fighting Illini riders competed at 2019 IHSA Nationals while another watched. From Buffalo Grove, Illinois, Monika Kizerwetter (on left) was second in individual intermediate on the flat at Zone 7 Zones on April 7, 2019 to advanced through to Syracuse. Sitting in the stands with Kizerwetter at Nationals on May 2nd of that year is Illinois teammate Kristina Slaby, who qualified for Regionals in intermediate fences and made the journey to Syracuse to be part of the festivities.
A year earlier she placed fifth in individual walk-trot at 2018 IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Kindra Gingerich of St. Mary-of-the-Woods College (on left) is seen here at 2019 IHSA Nationals with Pomeroys teammate Alexis Cobb. It was the first time at Nationals for Cobb (from Fairland, Indiana) and the second for Gingerich (from Sharpsville, Indiana). We don't know which of the two won the individual walk-trot-canter (as it was known at the time) at 2019 Region 1 Regionals but Cobb won the blue ribbon at Zone 7 Zones on April 7th of that year. However Cobb (only a sophomore at the time) was out of the ribbons in Syracuse while Gingerich again placed second. A senior at the time, Gingerich earned the best ribbon of any Region 1 hunter seat or western rider at 2019 Nationals with her red in individual walk-trot-canter on May 2nd. But Gingerich wasn't done riding in Syracuse...
...for two days later Gingerich was also entered in the individual open reining division. Seen here with St. Mary-of-the-Woods head coach Sara Schulz (on left), Gingerich finished her senior year by placing eighth in the division sponsored by the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) on May 4th. The Pomeroys were western Region Champions during Gingerich's sophomore, junior and senior years.
One of the few Region 1 freshmen to compete at 2019 IHSA Nationals is Olivia Bradley of Butler University (on left, with head coach Dawn Stumm). From Grand Rapids, Michigan, Bradley was second in individual intermediate over fences at Zone 7 Zones to qualify to ride in the division again at Nationals in Syracuse.
During the 2018-19 regular season Chloe Arndt earned exactly 42 points in alumni flat and 42 points in alumni fences. The 2018 Indiana University graduate won the alumni flat class at Zone 7 Zones on April 7, 2019 and went on to place fourth in the division at IHSA Nationals on May 4, 2019. Incidentally until another Nationals takes place the Alumni flat class that Arndt was fourth in is the most recent hunter seat class of any kind held at an IHSA Nationals event.
The last hunter seat team class held at 2019 IHSA Nationals was open flat. This class was held immediately before the alumni flat, making it the final hunter seat class involving undergraduates held in Syracuse over the four-day weekend. And Lindsay Lucas of Purdue University (on right, with coach Krista Steinmetz) was eighth in the division. Because the team scoring system is different at an IHSA Nationals event eighth place meant two more points for the Boilermakers, who finished ninth overall with 16 points.
