During the regular season she rode six times in intermediate flat and won all six of those rides! Coincidentally from Williamsburg, Virginia, Logan Bishop of the College of William and Mary (on left) is seen here with head coach Karen Greenwood after winning her intermediate flat at the February 10th Liberty University show. Early in the season Bishop earned a first and a second in a pair of novice flat classes, just missing out on a perfect regular season on the flat during her sophomore year. Ironically Bishop made it to Zones in novice fences where she placed seventh in the division in Greensboro, North Carolina on April 7th. William and Mary will host the Region 4 2018-19 season opener on September 23rd.

Is she the Bain of Randolph Macon College's existence? Well OK. Julia Bain of Randolph Macon (pictured) qualified for Regionals in both novice divisions. Like Bishop of William and Mary the sophomore from Nokesville, Virginia was especially strong in her flat classes. Bain earned a first and four seconds in two flat divisions over seven rides. Bain helped the Randolph Macon team - still not yet a ten-year old program - stay in the race for high point team through to the final show on February 18th when they ultimately came in third overall. Still this was the first season that Randolph Macon led the region at any time and also the first time they had a real shot at a region title over three shows into the season.
University of Mary Washington head coach Teresa Seay's winter hat welcomes you with open arms! Seay poses with Julianna Ianuzi (on left), who qualified for 2018 Regionals in both novice divisions. From Fairfax, Virginia, Ianuzi finished her sophomore year with a third in individual novice over fences at Zone 4 Zones on April 7th. Ianuzi was one of two Region 4 riders to place as high as third in an individual class at Zones (not counting the Cacchione Cup class).
The horse had Fitts when he rode around the ring with her! From Mount Kisco, New York, Jessie Fitts of the University of Richmond (on left) holds the blue ribbon she won in open flat during the February 10th Liberty show. Spiders head coach Jess Boppe (on right) saw Fitts qualify for Regionals in novice fences earlier in the season. The University of Richmond finished fifth in the ten-team-region for 2017-18.
His parents were there to see him canter in a show for the first time. From Boston, Massachusetts, Ryan Wambolt of Liberty University (center) is seen here with his parents at the same February 10th show the Flames hosted. Wambolt rode three times during the regular season, winning twice in walk-trot to point up and on the day this photo was taken he won his walk-trot-canter debut. Wambolt finished his junior year with a ninth in walk-trot at Zones on April 7th.
If you ride for Liberty, and you are hosting and your parents can't make it then pose for a photo with your best friend instead! This is what Hannah Peterson of the Flames did. Peterson (on right) calls her non-riding friend Anna Sommers (on left) her good luck charm. Prior to February 10th Peterson had placed third in four different novice flat classes during the fall but on the chilly day this photo was taken the senior from Ruther Glen, Virginia won her novice flat to point out of the division. This turned out to be Peterson's only blue ribbon of the 2017-18 season. Liberty finished second in the Region 4 team standings by seven points but tied eventual region champion Sweet Briar at 34-all for high point team honors the day this photo was taken.
Virginia Commonwealth University's Raegan Mentges (pictured) pointed out of intermediate flat at the October 29th Old Dominion show. Mentges finished eighth in the Region 4 open rider standings even though it was not until the fourth show of the season that she competed in an open flat class. From Williamsburg, Virginia, Mentges completed her junior year with a sixth in individual intermediate flat at Zones on April 7th.
While her teammate Makayla Benjamin went on to win the Cacchione Cup at 2018 IHSA Nationals, Julia Magner of Sweet Briar College should not be overlooked as one of the other Vixen open riders. From North Potomic, Maryland, Magner (on left) is seen here with head coach Lizzie Fisch following her open flat ride at the February 10th Liberty show. Moments later Magner was announced as the winner of the first class of the day. Sweet Briar captured a Region Title in their first year as a member of Region 4, following in the footsteps of Liberty which had done the same thing one season earlier. Sweet Briar also has unusually captured Region Titles as a member of three different regions. The Vixens accomplished this in 2006 as a member of Zone 4, Region 1; in 2009 as a member of Zone 4, Region 2 and this year in Region 4.
