Seen here with assistant coach Caitlin Adler, Gina Gramarossa of Sacred Heart University (on left) is one of four members of the Pioneers qualified to ride in two classes at 2019 Regionals. A senior from Westbury, New York, Gramarossa is qualified for Regionals in both hunter seat novice divisions. Surprisingly no other Region 5 riders managed to qualify in both of those divisions over the first six shows.

Through the fall the University of Connecticut has the most Region 5 hunter seat riders qualified for Regionals. Seen here with her parents, Nicole Saidnawey is one of ten Huskies qualified for Regionals. The senior from Belmont, Massachusetts is going to the March 30th Regionals show in novice fences. UConn trails Sacred Heart by 14 points with four shows remaining.
Hot on the heals of UConn is Trinity College. The Bantams are only a point behind the Huskies (and thus 15 behind Sacred Heart). Trinity has the third-most hunter seat regional qualifiers through six fall shows with six (one fewer than the Pioneers). One of the six is junior Kimber Boekell (on left, with head coach Amy Kriwitsky). From Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, Boekell is qualified in intermediate flat.
Seen here at the March 3, 2018 Connecticut College show, Alyx Podgurski of Fairfield University sits in sixth place in the Region 5 hunter seat open rider standings. From Scituate, Massachusetts, Podgurski started the year in open flat and intermediate fences but has since pointed out of the latter.
The combination of Glastonbury, Connecticut and surrounding towns such as South Glastonbury and East Glastonbury have producted as many IHSA riders as any community in IHSA history with a suburban setting. Marilyn Mossien of Yale University (pictured) is among several currently riding in the IHSA from this area. The Bulldog junior is qualified for Regionals in intermediate flat.
From Coventry, Connecticut, Nicole McMeekin of Central Connecticut State University (pictured) is one of six riders across the region qualified to compete in the walk-trot-canter division at Regionals on March 30th. This division used to be called Advanced walk-trot-canter but is now known by the shorter name. The Beginner walk-trot-canter is now known as the "Beginning" walk-trot-canter within all IHSA programs. One must earn 18 points in the Beginning WTC before he or she may compete in the WTC to try and get to 36 points in the latter.
Back when the division was still "Beginner" walk-trot-canter Emma Schenker of Connecticut College won such a class and then posed with Camels head coach Richard Luckhardt and her blue ribbon way back on November 7, 2015 in Hebron, Connecticut. Fast forward to early 2019 and the senior from New York, New York (a town which has produced more IHSA riders than the Glastonburys combined!) is going to Regionals in novice flat. Connecticut College hosts the first Region 5 show of the new year at Mystic Valley Hunt Club on February 9th.
