Director of Membership:Sydni (Peterson) Nusink - I am making my intent known for running for director of membership. I have been riding dressage in the state since I was 6 years old, I am a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist and and train out of VIP Equine in Spanish Fork and Keystone Equestrian in Bluffdale. I have such a passion for this sport and want to see it expand in our state! I believe I would be great for this position because I love people. I am outgoing and have an excitement about dressage that is endless. I would love to help our new members become a part of the community and help them become involved!
Secretary: Caryn Bloom - I've spent the past year getting myself acclimated to Utah and understanding the dressage horse world here. Coming from a large GMO and a very active and competitive dressage community in Texas, I think that there is a lot of help I can provide by becoming a member of the Board. Having been a past GMO President, I thought about running for UDS President but realized that my work commitments wouldn't allow me the amount of dedication I would like to give to UDS as President. In light of that, I still wanted to help out in some capacity so I am interested in running for the position of Secretary for the UDS.
President: Stacey Hornsby - After I recently stepped into the Interim President position, I would like to run for the position in the upcoming elections. I have gained some insights from the last time I held this position 2008-2010 and I feel I can be an effective leader for our growing GMO! I will work to add more education events like our new Winter Educational Symposium and in 2016 which we plan to make bigger and better as we network with other rising clubs. I would like to help join all our Utah riders together and add events and improve our services as well as grow our Jr program.
