Joint Leadership Council Announces Public Forums

Working to fulfill its mission to bring about positive change in the governance of our sport, the Joint Leadership Council announces a series of public forums at spring shows across the country. Presenters will give a brief overview of the JLC’s activities, discuss the importance of effective governance for our breeds and then open the floor for questions, comments, ideas and discussion amongst the audience. While it is understood that SafeSport and its implementation will generate many questions and comments, the JLC encourages discussion of all matters regarding governance. To maintain our breeds’ proportional seats on USEF boards and councils, the JLC encourages individual members and horse shows to retain their memberships and affiliation with USEF as we seek better representation and positive change from our governing body. We hope that owners, trainers, exhibitors and fans of our sport will join us at these public forums and help develop a path forward that will unite and grow our sport and our breeds. Upcoming forums have been confirmed for the following shows, and we hope to add more in the coming weeks.
