The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Board of Directors has elected Murray Kessler as its next President. Murray Kessler is the father of international showjumper Reed Kessler, who was a part of the American team at the 2012 Olympic Games. Murray Kessler comes to the position with extensive experience in horse sports, governance, and business.
Murray Kessler will officially take office at the USEF Annual Meeting in January 2017. In the interim, he will work with current President, Chrystine Tauber, and the USEF staff to ensure a smooth leadership transition.
In a statement on USEF's website, Kessler says: “I am honored the Board has elected me to lead this great Federation and I am excited to build upon the solid foundation Chrystine Tauber put in place. I believe the top level of our sport is in excellent shape and that the U.S. Equestrian Teams are well positioned for success at the Olympic Games this summer in Rio. However, there is much work to be done to increase access to and encourage participation in equestrian sports at all levels. The recognition that every member, every affiliate, and every discipline is important and serves a purpose to the overall success of the Federation will be fundamental to my tenure. Our vision is: To bring the joy of horse sports to as many people as possible.”
