Garret Ford and Jenni Smith Join Tevis Board of Governors
Garret Ford, EasyCare
Tevis and endurance riding have been part of Garret's life from childhood through today. The opportunity to ride Tevis as a junior in 1984 changed his life and, in many ways, guided him towards a career in the horse industry. Garret's goal as a Tevis Board Of Governors member is to make sure the event continues and our children have the opportunity to be shaped by the event in the future.
Jenni Smith, Ariat
Jenni is a big fan of the Tevis Cup - She's tried it nine times on seven different horses and has seven buckles to show for her efforts. Jenni brings a solid marketing background to the WSTF BOG - Nestle, PowerBar, Mother's Cookies and Clorox are featured on her resume. These days she's responsible for brand marketing at Ariat International, which she refers to as "the mother ship". Jenni's excited to be inducted onto the board and looking forward to learning how the foundation functions and what's involved in putting on such an amazing, historic ride.
