"It has been an asset having Sarah Evers Conrad contribute to USDF Connection. Her grasp of horse-health subject matter and knowledge of equestrian sports’ governance organizations have proven particularly useful in identifying appropriate sources and creating authoritative and accurate content. Plus, she’s a pleasure to work with, and she meets her deadlines. In the world of dressage, that’s a 10."
