Eric Straus Named FEI Steward General for Reining
In late 2005 the FEI determined that to better serve the sport, and because stewards’ responsibilities have considerably expanded, each of the seven FEI disciplines in a National Federation (NF) should have a Steward General. There will also be one overall Coordinating Steward General for each NF. Previously, just one Steward General for all disciplines was appointed in each NF.

The new Steward General responsible for each discipline will report directly to the USEF Coordinating Steward, and to the FEI Steward General for the same discipline.

After a thorough process, and based upon the recommendations of the USEF Technical and High Performance Committees, the USEF appointed Eric Straus as the new Discipline and Steward General for Reining, which is a four-year term.

The FEI also appointed Straus, New York, NY, as the FEI Stewards General for Show Reining.

NRHA’s Stacy Westfall Wins Road to the Horse Competition
Congratulations to NRHA’s Stacy Westfall, perhaps best known for her bridleless Freestyle routines. Stacy won the Road to the Horse, the colt-starting challenge, held recently in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Westfall was the first female competitor. “The horses were extremely challenging and each clinician was outstanding. I also think Stacy’s win is a great step forward—confirming that women can compete differently, but on the same level as men,” said Event Producer Tootie Bland. For more information about Road to the Horse, visit www.roadtothehorse.com.
