Regionals Wraps Up Stock Seat Season (February 15, 2015)
There were 10 Albion riders that qualified to compete in five of the six divisions offered at the IHSA stock seat Region 4 Championships. Competition was tough at the show, which was held at the Michigan State University livestock pavilion on February 15, but the Briton riders sat tall and held their heads high throughout the day.
Top finishers included Brooke Viele (Midland / H.H. Dow), Jordan McGinn (Royal Oak / Shrine), and Megan McNeil (Onondaga / Jackson Christian), who all earned fourth place ribbons in their divisions. McNeil also picked up a sixth place in the open reining division. Morgan Carey (Hemlock / Saint Charles Community) and Kristine Mussell (Midland / H.H. Dow) also finished in sixth place.
Nine other colleges had riders competing at Regionals, and coach Denise Webber says that she felt victorious just by having so many Albion riders qualify. “I am so proud of my team in every aspect – from the way they dressed to the way they rode,” says Webber. “They were great sportsmen and I’m so proud of them. Even though they did not make it to Semi-Finals, they are still champions to me.”

Beliveau and Tonti Progress to IDA Nationals (February 21-22, 2015)
The Albion dressage team’s final show of their regular season was actually two shows, a double header hosted by Lake Erie College on February 21and 22. By the end of the weekend, the Briton riders had much to celebrate with two riders officially qualified to compete at the Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) National Championships.
Junior Paige Beliveau (West Newbury, Mass. / St. Thomas Acquinas) and first-year Jourdan Tonti (Livonia / Livonia Churchill) were both named Regional Champions in First Level and Introductory level respectively. They will both advance to IDA Nationals to compete against the best collegiate riders from every region.
Junior Jackson Regen (Nashville, Tenn. / Hillsboro) finished as Regional Reserve Champion, which earns him a wild-card spot for Nationals. Wild-card riders with the highest average percentages win the slot, so Regen must wait until all the other regional shows are completed before knowing the results.
After a tough season recovering from ankle surgery, senior Kayleigh Harvey (Ada/Forest Hills Eastern) finished the year strong winning both of her classes in Upper Training level and coming in third place overall for the region.
IDA Nationals will be held on April 24-26 at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.
