Jamie Landis

President

Jamie has been with the club since 2011 when her family moved in next door.  She joined the board in 2012. Jamie took over the role of treasurer in 2016 and then became president of the club in 2018. Jamie has always loved horses but the bug caught when her grandmother got her riding lessons for her 12th birthday.  She spent her teen years learning and falling in love with riding at a hunter jumper barn in central PA.  Today she enjoys spending time with horses doing mounted archery, gymkhana and trail riding. She loves being a part of Buxmont because it is a place that anyone that loves horses can come enjoy showing and spending time with their horse.  Jamie is proud to be a part of a great local club that offers quality shows in a variety of disciplines.

Audrey McMichael

Treasurer

Audrey has been a member of the club since 2008. She was appointed club Treasurer in 2018. Audrey has owned horses for most of her life. She became a horse "addict" from her very first pony ride. From then until now, she's shown Hunters, Jumpers, and now focuses on Dressage and the occasional trail ride. Running her own business and keeping the organization's financial information on track laid a very natural groundwork for becoming the riding club's treasurer. She is thrilled to be a part of a thriving organization, especially one that is all about horses!

Sarah Thiel

Board Member

Sarah has been with the club since 2014 & joined the board in 2015. She grew up with horses in her backyard & has worked with horses her whole life. Sarah has been riding since she could sit up, and began showing hunters and jumpers when she was 8 years old. Today, she loves trail rides with her husband and children & showing  jumpers when she can. But mostly, she loves seeing the joy her own children get when riding their horses/ponies & showing at Buxmont. Sarah believes it is a privilege to be a part of such a great horse club, watching riders grow and achieve their goals throughout the season.
