WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
Head Coach Bethany Jones: "The move to Region 4 allows Endicott to continue to compete against some of the best teams in the country while being close to home. It also allows our riders a much better balance between school and riding."
Assistant Coach Alexis Arlander '03: "With less time spent traveling, we are excited to be able to provide our riders with the opportunity to not only ride while at school, but also to be more active as a member of the Endicott community. We also hope that this move will encourage more people to come out to the horse shows to show their support as we will be much closer to home."
Junior Captain Amber Vuilleumier: "I'm excited to see ourselves grow as a team, to take all our new riders and become closer as a family so that we can then use that strength to dominate the region. I want to show the new region that we look out for each other and that's what sets us apart from other teams and allows us to succeed. We push each other to be the best teammate and riders we can be."
Sophomore Captain Annabella Silva: "What makes me the most excited to step into this new region is the new competition that we are going to discover in the teams we'll be riding against. We're going into a region that we haven't ridden against before and not knowing what our competition looks like is thrilling. I'm also very excited to see what each of our new riders bring to our team in the competition world and discover how we can use our collective strength to make our team one of the regions toughest competitors."
