Lexington, Virginia, The Virginia Horse Center Foundation (VHCF) is pleased to announce the addition of George Williams and Brooks Cushman to the Board of Directors.

George Williams is a highly accomplished International Grand Prix competitor who is widely renowned in his field. He is a US Team member, former president of the United States Dressage Federation (2010-2018) and is a popular clinician.   George was a resident trainer and rider of Lipizzaners in Illinois for 13 years and subsequently spent nine years riding and training at Gypsy Woods Farm in Ohio. Later, he transitioned to his family business, Williams Dressage, LLC and is now living in Scottsville, Virginia, accepting horses and riders at Stave Mill Farm in Esmont, VA.

“George adds a unique combination of perspectives to the Board.” says Gardy Bloemers, President. "He brings a wealth of knowledge as an international dressage competitor, national youth coach and top instructor.  In addition, he has many years of experience in non-profit leadership."

George is the US Dressage National Youth Coach and is an appointee to the Federation Equestrian International Dressage Committee.

“In its role as one of the top multi-discipline equestrian facilities in the US, the Virginia Horse Center pulls in competitors from many states. As the Center continues to make updates and improvements, I see it playing an even more vital role than it already does to not only the horse community and equestrian sports, but also to the community at large. It is an honor to be asked and an exciting time to be part of the Board.” said Williams.
