He placed third in individual open reining at the Galva, Illinois Semifinal last March 19th. In doing so Ethan Gorsak (pictured) became the only Rutgers University western rider to qualify for 2016 IHSA Nationals at the Alltech Arena on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. From Toms River, New Jersey, Gorsak is seen here before competing in the division at IHSA Nationals on May 7th.

Sometimes finishing out of the top two at Zones doesn't turn out as badly as one might imagine. Amanda Ortiz of Rutgers University (pictured) was fourth at Zones in the individual walk-trot division on April 10th. However not one but two riders who placed above Ortiz would not go on to compete in the division at Nationals for different reasons. As a result the rider who is next in line among those receiving ribbons moves up. Therefore Ortiz was invited to compete in the walk-trot at Nationals in Lexington on May 6th. From West Orange, New Jersey, Ortiz joined teammates Nicole Adams (entered in individual open over fences), Grace Harper (entered in individual intermediate on the flat) and Gorsak as one of four Scarlet Knights who competed over the four-day event.
Six Bloomsburg University riders qualified for 2016 hunter seat Regionals, the most of any Region 4 school save for Rutgers or Lafayette. One of the six was Erica Grater (pictured), who qualified in both novice divisions. The Huskies once again co-host two fall shows at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds on back-to-back days in mid-October.
Gosh we wish we had taken this photo from a different angle to avoid sunlight issues. In any event Sam Miller of East Stroudsburg University is seen here during the March 2015 Rutgers/Moravian show. Last season Miller was sixth at Regionals in advanced walk-trot-canter. East Stroudsburg hosts the Region 4 season opener on September 24th, which will also mark the first time this region has held a show at the 'New Briarwood' which is better known as Black River Farm in Ringoes, New Jersey.
Gee wiz we wish we had taken this photo of Kayla Birde mounted on "Taboo" during the September 2014 Kutztown show from up close since the photo now looks so small. In any event Birde was one of seven Lafayette College riders to compete at Region 4 hunter seat Regionals last April 2nd. The Leopards have won five region titles over the past eight seasons but watched Rutgers win their third title in five seasons during the 2015-16 campaign. Will Lafayette return to the top in '17 or will Rutgers make it two straight? Or will another school ride to victory and end the two schools' stronghold that dates back to 2009??
