Current U.S. Equestrian Federation CEO John Long has announced that he will resign the position next June. Long has been USEF CEO since 2003.
“I don’t have any plans yet,” he said. “I’m not going to start to think about that until late winter. There are still too many things I want to get done, and I have to be invested in one thing and not thinking about something else. I want to slow down a little bit; I have children and grandchildren, and I’d like to travel where I want to travel and do some other fun things.”
The USEF will begin seeking Long’s successor shortly.
“[USEF President] Chrystine Tauber put together a search committee, and the interviewing will probably begin February or March of next year,” said Long, 65. “We’re doing this in an orderly process, and we’ll make sure it’s a seamless transition.”
