IHSA ZONE 4 - REGION 3

Photo
Seen here as a junior during 2016 IHSA Nationals, Jarret Vaughn of St. Andrews University placed second in team advanced western horsemanship on May 7th at 2017 IHSA Nationals in his final undergraduate ride. St. Andrews entered AllTech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park as the co-defending National Champions and left as the outright National Champions. The Knights scored points in each of the six Western Team Classes at 2017 Nationals but remarkably did not take the lead until the fifth team class (Jarret Vaughn competed in the fourth team class for the record).

All of the riders from Region 3 who competed at 2017 IHSA Nationals - be they Western or English - competed for St. Andrews University save for two. Cacchione Cup representative Erica Hamilton of East Carolina University (not pictured) was one and Jessica Floden of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (center) was the other. From Chicago, Illinois Floden won the individual walk-trot class at Zone 4 Zones in Laurinburg, North Carolina on April 8th to advance to the year-end National show. Seen here near horse draw at AllTech Arena on May 6th are Jessica's Mother (on left), Floden and Wilmington coach Emilie Wilson, who graduated from St. Andrews in 2015.

While the St. Andrews western team went on to repeat as National Champion team the lone representative from their hunter seat team at 2017 Nationals was Sabrina Vlacich (on right). Seen here with Knights hunter seat coach Robin Brooks, Vlacich did not disappoint. From Bayville, New York Vlacich received a combined Judge's score of '87' in the individual intermediate over fences division which was the top score. After testing the top two riders Vlacich was the winner, ending her junior year as the intermediate fences National Champion on May 4th.

A trip down memory lane! Two seasons ago Sara Conversano (on left) was the North Carolina State University hunter seat coach (today it is Kara Wilcox). Marie Wachter of the Wolfpack poses with Conversano after riding in a novice flat class at the 2015 Region 3 hunter seat season opener hosted by UNC - Wilmington. From Mansfield, Massachusetts Wachter completed her junior year at NC State with a fourth in individual intermediate flat at Zone 4 Zones in Laurinburg, North Carolina on April 8th. The Wolfpack finished third in the region for hunter seat, only eight points behind St. Andrews and 19 points behind East Carolina.

From Atlanta, Georgia Steven Dennis of St. Andrews University (on left, with western head coach Carla Wennberg) had an unusual history which led him to the Laurinburg, North Carolina school. While in the military Dennis was injured, and part of his rehabilitation involved working with horses. After leaving the military it turned out St. Andrews had the correct major for him and an aclaimed riding center. Dennis rode only once at Nationals, placing ninth in individual beginner western on May 7th.

From Trenton, North Carolina, Margaret "Mimi" Taylor of East Carolina University (on left) poses with her Mother during the January 2017 Tournament of Champions invitational in Weyer's Cave, Virgnia. East Carolina was invited to that event as 2016-17 marked the first time the Pirates ever led their region at the halfway mark. Like Wachter of NC State Taylor's season ended with a fourth (in advanced walk-trot-canter) at Zones on April 8th. But 2016-17 will be remembered for ECU winning their first-ever Region Title and halting St. Andrews' six year run of titles.

If any IHSA rider had ice water in his veins at 2017 IHSA Nationals it is recent St. Andrews graduate Mark Mowbray (pictured). From Rhodesdale, Maryland Mowbray was usually laughing and making others feel at ease throughout the competition. Meanwhile his own rides produced the following results: Fourth in team open reining pattern on May 5th; First in individual open western horsemanship later that same day; Fourth in the NRHA-sponsored individual open reining pattern on May 6th; Sixth in the individual AQHA High Point Open Rider Competition on May 7th and a first in team open western horsemanship later that same day to clinch an outright National Championship for the Knights and their second title in two years.
