Two Join Horse Center Board husband spent several





The Virginia Horse Center Foundation has announced the addition of George Williams and Brooks Cushman to the board of directors.

Williams is a highly accomplished International Grand Prix competitor. He is a U.S. Team member, former president of the United States Dressage Federation (2010-2018) and is a popular clinician.

He was a resident trainer and rider of Lipizzaners in Illinois for 13 years and subsequently spent nine years riding and training at Gypsy Woods Farm in Ohio. Later, he transitioned to his family business, Williams Dressage, LLC, and is now living in Scottsville, accepting horses and riders at Stave Mill Farm in Esmont.

He is also the U.S. Dressage national youth coach and is an appointee to the Federation Equestrian International Dressage Committee.

Cushman is a native of North Carolina and a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in journalism. She and her husband spent several years in New York City and later purchased a farm and moved to Middlebrook.

Foxhunting and thoroughbreds have a place in her heart, but Connemaras are her current passion. Cushman has been a loyal volunteer and supporter of the VHC over the years.

“My biggest dream for the Virginia Horse Center is that we secure its future as open land for generations to come.” says Cushman. “My ongoing financial commitment to the VHC - through my annual gift, sponsorships, and a bequest - is to support the vision of being the premier horse facility in Virginia.”
