2022 - 2023 Board
President: Kami Rapp
Kami grew up on a ranch in central Texas and started riding horses before she can remember. At age 5 she started showing in western pleasure at AQHA shows and local riding clubs. However, once introduced to barrel racing at age 6, all she wanted to do was “go fast” and that was the end of her short-lived western pleasure career. She was fortunate to have parents that hauled her and her sister all over Texas to compete in rodeos, which formed her love of competing and making friends through riding horses. Upon graduating from Texas A&M she sold her horse to focus on a career, but horses have a way of never leaving your soul. So, 15 years later she began taking English lessons and learning to jump. She soon discovered the wonderful world of eventing and it appealed to her childhood desire to “go fast”; thus, an eventer was born. Her eventing partner is Revi, an Appendix Quarter Horse. Much like herself, Revi is a ranch horse turned event horse and he also loves to “go fast”. To pay for her horse addiction, Kami works in healthcare administration for Methodist Healthcare System and is a professorial lecturer for The George Washington University in the Milken Institute School of Public Heath.
Vice-President: Erin McLeod
Erin started riding at the age of 8 and fell in love with eventing on her Spanish Mustang pony, Houdini, at the age of 10. She competed through her teens and early twenties on Houdini and her OTTB mare, Maria. Erin works as a veterinary technician at a small animal hospital in Fair Oaks Ranch and is currently bringing along a 6-year-old OTTB, River.
Treasurer: Stacey Lynch
After a 28-year career, Stacey retired from Chevron Corporation in 2016, and followed her husband from California to Texas. She brought along her two dogs and her newly purchased Oldenburg, B-Free, whose barn name is Bambino. Having evented as a youth, Stacey set out to re-experience the fun of Eventing and is working to transition Bambino from a Jumper to an Event horse. Stacey and her husband, Chris, have two adult children who live in California. When not at the barn or somehow involved with her horse, Stacey volunteers with the San Antonio CASA organization, helping to give a voice to foster children in the child protective services system.
Secretary: Michelle Kennedy
Michelle started riding at the age of 9. After her 3rd grade teacher read The Black Stallion, she begged her parents for a horse, so they enrolled her in riding lessons (her mom hoped horses were a phase she would grow out of, much to her dismay she is still waiting). She competed in AQHA in as many events as she could, ranging from showmanship to western pleasure to hunter under saddle. After a hiatus from horses while in pharmacy school, she started lessons again, and decided to try dressage and jumping, which eventually lead her to find her passion in eventing. Her eventing parter is Izzy, an OTTB. Michelle works at Methodist Children’s Hospital as a clinical pharmacist in the Pediatric Oncology/Hematology/Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.
Points Master/Membership: Robin Moore
Robin is an eventing mom of many years, now travelling to events with Erin for the 'fun' of it and as an extra set of hands. Recently retired after a career in IT, she now enjoys reading, sewing and binging Netflix. Sometimes all three at once. She lives in Fair Oaks Ranch with her husband, Curtis, one dog and two cats.
Web Master: Irene Doo
Irene is an avid adult amateur rider and placed ninth in Novice at the 2015 American Eventing Championships on her then 23-year old horse, Ace. She is bringing along a 9-year old TB/WB cross, Sunny, and hopes to event him at the AECs in a few years. When not at the barn or work, Irene also serves on the USEA Volunteer Committee and has produced volunteer instructional videos for the USEA.
