Dear USHJA Board of Directors,
I am writing to voice my support for Mary Babick as President of the United States Hunter Jumper Association. Mary Babick has repeatedly demonstrated an interest in the broader base of this sport. As a USHJA member, I am concerned with the organization's focus on uppermost incomes rather than uppermost, or potentially uppermost, talent. As ever increasing costs thwart our ability to seek and develop new riders/owners, we would be wise to diversify with more affordable opportunities for the competitive equestrian. I believe Mary Babick will work tirelessly to expand the Hunter-Jumper sport to as many riders as possible, thereby ensuring a strong and competitive future for our industry and our international teams.
As a dues paying member of the United States Hunter Jumper Association I ask you to speak on my behalf and vote to elect Mary Babick as USHJA President on December 4th.
Thank you for your consideration and for your service to our wonderful sport.
