Ally Villareale tops Alumni Tournament of Champions

EAST GREENVILLE, Pa.--Despite various challenges, the 9th annual hunt seat Alumni Tournament of Champions was held at a beautiful new facility, and it was blessed with wonderful weather, fabulous horses and amazing sponsors.

The usual pre-party / end of year awards reception sponsored by the IHSAA was moved as a free lunch exhibitor party at the show due to covid concerns.

The top award went to Alyssa Kelly from University of Delaware who added her name to our perpetual trophy as the overall winner of accumulating the most points over for hunt seat and western points.

In the Mane Jane Hunt Seat Alumni Cup, judge Patte Zumbrun dropped the field to just 6 for the final round of testing after combining individual flat and fences scores.

Scores were very close in the end, but the 2020 Mane Jane Hunt Seat Alumni Cup trophy went home with Ally Villareale, a Delaware College Graduate.


THE IHSAA Future Hunt Seat Alumni Cup, the only class dedicated to graduating seniors, went to Rachel Burton from Virginia Tech. Other class winners were as follows:

The Alumni Tournament of Champions is an IHSA style horse show for IHSA alumni from around the country.

Riders draw horses before competing and are not able to practice before showing.

The purpose of the show is to expand opportunities for IHSA Alumni to ride in a finals type atmosphere, as many only show a few times a year with busy careers and limited funds.

The 2021 10th Anniversary Alumni Tournament of Champions is scheduled for June 6, 2021 at the USET Headquarters in Gladstone, N.J.

This special anniversary show is sure to include many special prizes and surprises!
