|After back-to-back seasons as the number three team overall in Region 1, Christopher Newport University finally broke the Goucher/Mary Washington stronghold on Champion and/or Reserve Champion honors in 2011-12. The Captains scored 225 points (four more than in 2010-11) and finished second overall for the first time in program history. Prior to Head Coach Ryann Winn's arrival (Winn is on far left) Christopher Newport had never finished a season in the top five within the Zone 4, Region 1 team standings.|

About the IHSA
The Intercollegiate Horse Show Association or IHSA is a national organization in which most colleges and universities participate. The country is divided into six zones with at least two regions in each zone; each region consists of 10 to 15 teams. Christopher Newport is a member of Zone 4, Region 1. All members of a region compete in about eight shows per year.
IHSA shows focus on Hunt Seat Equitation at all levels. Riders range in ability from beginners to those with extensive showing experience. Classes at IHSA shows are divided into six divisions; your division depends on your individual show experience and number of years riding. Beginners do not compete against advanced riders. Only the upper three divisions (Novice, Intermediate, Open) include a jumping portion at the shows. In all other divisions, riders compete on the flat.
