Meet the Brownsboro Alliance Board of Directors
Dear friends, neighbors, supporters, and guests of Brownsboro Alliance,
I am pleased to introduce to you the Brownsboro Alliance Board of Directors. Working behind the scenes, our Board is a group of volunteers who are committed to the Brownsboro Trail System, the Community of Brownsboro and Oldham County.
When I was growing up, I boarded my horse in Brownsboro, and I fondly remember spending about five days a week riding throughout the scenic farms of Oldham County. My husband Henry and I now live in Brownsboro where we have raised two children. Our girls also grew up riding the trails in our area, as well as competing around the world. Wherever our travels have taken us, my family agrees that few trails rival the charm and beauty of the Brownsboro Trails.
As a founding member of Brownsboro Alliance, I have always been interested in making the Brownsboro trails more widely available to our community. Through the hard work of our dedicated board members, we have been able to offer many of my favorite trails to members of the Brownsboro Alliance Trail Association. Please get to know each one below, and say hello when you see us on the trails!
