Marcie McClenon was introduced to horses through her sister, but the horses have followed her throughout her life. She continues to follow her passion in Ocala, Florida, and graces this month’s cover. NSBA welcomes four new inductees into the Quarter Million Dollar Club, including Bruce Vickery, Tracy Fenney, Santiago Lambre and Sharn Wordley, and we learn more about their journeys in this issue. The second class of the NSBA Foundation’s Tomorrows Horsemen has begun their educational journey in the program. We explain more about the curriculum and introduce this year’s class. The road to becoming a professional trainer often starts as an assistant trainer, and The Way To Go talked with several assistants to learn more about their path, their goals and their advice as they work toward their professional goals. In this month’s Sound Advice, NSBA Executive Director Stephanie Lynn discusses the evaluation process for judging, how to use the results to improve your performance and how to provide input to improve the process. We introduce you to the 2022 NSBA Scholarship recipient, Alexa Gerdes and in this month’s Foundation Feature, professional trainer Carey Ready explains how volunteering with EWD and veteran riders helps give him perspective. All this and more can be found in this month’s issue of The Way To Go!
