New Area VIII Young Rider Coordinators

The Area VIII Junior/Young Rider Program is proud to announce Shelley Ryan and Maxine Preston as the new coordinators.

Shelley Ryan

"I am excited to introduce myself as a new Co-coordinator for the Area VIII Young Riders Program. My three daughters participated in the program about 20 years ago and really enjoyed the camaraderie while making new friends in addition to progressing their riding skills and experiences.

I have previous experience organizing horse trials and continue to help at area events. This past year I became a ‘r’ Eventing TD which has allowed me to travel and work at several area horse trials which has been a lot of fun. I also work many of the schooling shows in the Lexington and Louisville area which are so vital to developing riding skills and progressing through the levels.

It is my hope that we will be able to offer quality camps and clinics for all our Young Riders to continue to build the program that Dorothy, Cindy and Laura spent so much time and energy developing. Fundraising is also a big component of the program, so stay tuned for more information on that.

We are looking forward to a successful 2019!


Maxine Preston

Maxine Preston is based in Ocala, Florida but grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan and has been an avid Eventer all her life. She was involved in Area 8 Young Riders growing up and now is excited to give back to the program!

Please join us in welcoming them to their new position!
