Working to fulfill its mission to bring about positive change in the governance of the sport, the Joint Leadership Council (AHHS, AMHA, ARHPA, ASHA and UPHA) has announced 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 the 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 the 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 it seeks better representation and positive change from the governing body. JLC hopes that owners, trainers, exhibitors and fans of the sport will attend these public forums and help develop a path forward that will unite and grow the sport and breeds.
Upcoming forums have been confirmed for the following shows:
