IHSA ZONE 7 - REGION 1

From St. Louis, Missouri, Katherine Harkwell of Butler University (on left) sits in the stands beside head coach Emily Ahlfeld at 2022 IHSA Nationals in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on May 5th prior to riding in the individual open flat division. Harkwell won the same class at Zone 7 Zones in Lubbock, Texas on April 9th and would finish her freshman year with the Bulldogs by placing seventh in individual open flat a short time later. Butler will host the first shows of the 2022-23 season for any IHSA region. The Bulldogs host back-to-back hunter seat shows over the September 10/11 weekend.

At St. Mary of the Woods College there is currently a rare situation within the IHSA where a head coach coaches her sister! Tabatha Taylor (on left) is the head coach while her sister Teah (on right) competed for the Pomeroys in two classes during 2022 IHSA Nationals. Teah Taylor previously rode for Black Hawk College (class of 2020 at the two-year school) and 2021-22 was her junior year in college. Whatever Tabatha told her younger sister must have worked on May 6th, for on that day Teah won team open reining to give St. Mary of the Woods the lead to start the 2022 IHSA Nationals Western Team Competition.

It is also rare that a team gets zero points in a team class at a Zones show and yet still advanced through to IHSA Nationals with a full hunter seat team. This is what Purdue University managed to do. The Boilermakers rallied and even finished a solid seven points ahead of the University of Minnesota at Crookston to take the reserve high point team award at Zone 7 Zones on April 10th. One of the riders who helped Purdue come back is Anne Hummer (on right). At Zones Hummer was second in team novice equitation. Then on May 6th the junior (at the time) from Cleveland, Ohio repeated that red ribbon at Nationals to earn eight of the Boilermaker's 18 points in Harrisburg. Krista Steinmetz (on left) was the long-time Purdue Assistant Coach (to her father Jerry Steinmetz) and she announced ahead of Nationals that, like her father, she would be stepping down following 2022 Nationals. Krista hopes to show her own horse on a regular basis.

Jerry Steinmetz (on right) announced his retirement after almost 40 years coaching Purdue. With help at different times from his late wife Sue and daughter Krista, Jerry Steinmetz led the Boilermakers to 40 hunter seat Region Titles (starting with the first in 1985-86), almost as many Nationals team appearances while also coaching numerous riders to Nationals individually. On the left is Amelia Buckmaster of the Purdue class of 2022 (and another rider with a red ribbon at Zones - this in team intermediate fences - to help get Purdue through to Harrisburg), who is not the first member of her family to ride for Jerry. Her mother Cathy Thompson (class of 1990) also rode for Purdue. Jerry can even claim two of the riders on his 1983-84 team met, then married and had a daughter who won the 2018 IHSA Nationals Cacchione Cup Competition (though that daughter went to Sweet Briar and not Purdue).

So who will coach the Purdue University hunter seat team in 2022-23? It will be a 2021 St. Mary of the Woods College graduate who has been very successful riding alumni over the past year. She is Kathryn Kraft (pictured), who won both alumni classes at Zone 7 Zones; was third in Alumni Western Horsemanship at the Galva, Illinois Semifinal on March 20th; rode three times in Alumni classes at 2022 IHSA Nationals on May 7th (seventh in alumni western, second in alumni over fences and first in alumni flat) and even won three classes at the Alumni Tournament of Champions in Gladstone, New Jersey June 5th and 6th including the top western prize known as the western alumni cup (Kraft is seen here between hunter seat rides near the entrance to the USET Headquarters where the show took place in June).
