This will be Lori's second year participating with CCWC. Last year she enjoyed watching her granddaughter, Cadence and her friend Sierra compete and really improve as the show season went on! They are hooked! She hopes to be riding her new horse Makita this season! 30+ years ago, when she lived in Oregon, she was very involved in several gaming and showing clubs so she is rekindling that love and hoping to help this club grow. As the "new comer", she doesn't know all the people that are involved in this industry here so she has a lot to learn but is looking forward to meeting new people and just having fun! She does not have a "paying job" but is raising 2 of her 4 grand kids and is managing a small horse farm. She is really looking forward to a great show season in 2018!
Treasurer - Chelsea Warner
Chelsea has loved and been involved with horses her entire life. She started out riding English, then switched to western. Her biggest dream came true thanks to a mare named Abby. Ever since I was a little girl all I wanted was a horse to call my own. When I was 13 years old I was surprised with Abby on Christmas morning, and we have been inseparable ever since. Her and I stared at ccwc doing halter and w/t barrels, our passion for competing only grew stronger from there. After participating at local shows and rodeos for several years now, she is going on 20yr old and is sadly retiring. I now have my quarter horse dually who I have raised since birth. For the past 13 years I have been apart of ccwc. Ccwc and all its members has helped me become more confident as a person and rider. I shall contribute in any way possible to ensure this club grows and thrives. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for all of us as ccwc!
Megan has owned and ridden horses her entire life. She started out riding western and did gaming and fun shows with her pony until she got Pleasant Honor for Christmas when she was 12. He was a New Holland rescue and she discovered he was a retired race horse as well. Megan and Honor have shown at most of all the local shows in the area. Their first show season at CCWC was last year. She is looking forward to a great 2018 in the pleasure ring.
Kim has been involved in the show scene her entire life. From 4-H to ApHC, now IBRA and CCWC. She has always been a versatility rider, competing in HUS, WP, hunterpaces, halter, jumpers, trail riding and now gaming. She will always love her "spots", though you will catch her competing with her solid Appaloosa, Waps Dun Struck Gold, aka Comanche. This year they can be found in both the "speed ring" and the English division. She loves the fact that Comanche will participate in whatever shenanigans she puts in front of him. Her main focus as VP is to make sure the that organization grows and provides a fun but yet competitive atmosphere for those who want to show but stay more local.
Corresponding Secretary - Lori Cusick
Sandy has been around horses all her life. She showed horses when younger in all divisions but enjoyed the speed events the most. She is currently getting more involved with horse shows again because her daughter Lori has inherited her love for horses. She announced for the speed division in 2017 and hopes to continue to keep everything moving at a smooth and steady pace. She is looking forward to a great 2018 season.
Vice President - Sandy McFarland
Chief Ring Steward - Jennifer Wilmot
President - Kim Shifflett
Pleasure Ring Steward - Megan Lawrence
Jennifer has been involved with CCWC since early 2009 when she began to show her first Quarter Horse, Ima Daddys Big Gurl. Since then she has shown and owned two other show horses, most recently her pride and joy, Our Last Invitation aka Wyatt. Jenn was a Director at Large for a few years where she began to become more involved with the club. She was elected Vice President in 2015 and proudly took the nomination of President in 2016 and 2017 but has passed off the title for a change in scenery. Jenn is passionate about the club and what she can do for it. It has been a great experience to, to show, meet new folks, forge new friendships, share and encourage with each other. This club has done a lot for her and with a strong BOD on board the goals and ideas we have together, the future looks bright for Carroll County Western Circuit.
