Fox Village Dressage


GHF OFFICERS--Our CEOs are (from left) Ann Genovese, director; Karen McGoldrick,  director-at-large; Robin Boggs, treasurer; Patricia Powell, membership chairman. The Good Horseman Foundation® is devoted to the promotion, protection and preservation of the art and sport of dressage to its highest levels. It's activities are limited to the organization of USEF/USDF recognized competitions, and the creation of educational opportunities such as seminars, clinics, forums, and scholarships and is a Group Member Organization of the United States Dressage Federation www.usdf.org. Our national-level competitions are licensed by The United States Equestrian Federation www.usef.org .  ​


The Good Horseman Foundation
® produces five USDF/USEF-licensed dressage competitions and occasionally a schooling show each year. The recognized shows feature the Massey Ferguson/Good Horseman Electronic Scoreboard sponsored by Massey Ferguson Tractors,  AGCO International, Duluth, GA.  
        We have brought to the dressage community such events as an on-going program for training dressage instructors/trainers and getting them Certified through USDF, clinics and seminars by well-known experts such as the late Jaap Pot, FEI Olympic judge who helped establish the standard of dressage judging in this country;   the late Dr. Reiner Klimke, six-time Olympic gold medalist, author and trainer; Harry Boldt, former German Olympic Team trainer and author;   Liselotte Fore, Felicitas von Neumann-Cosel,  Cindy Sydnor and Debbie Bowman, examiners of the USDF Pre-Certification Program for Instructors; clinics with FEI judge and trainer Martin Richenhagen; and a series of Trainers Conferences with George Williams. 
      For 2010 we were especially pleased to host German Olympic Dressage Gold Medalist Hubertus Schmidt, sponsored by AGCO Corporation and Martin Richenhagen.   Nearly 200 dressage people from the Southeast attended the Symposium at After the Fox Farm, Madison, GA, as sponsors, auditors, riders and staff to present one of the best programs GHF has ever produced.

         We have concluded four complete USDF "L" Judges Education Programs and final exams, and hold the USDF Continuing Education Program for "L" Graduates nearly every year.  Information about the current program is listed on our website's Calendar page. Starting in the fall of 2014, GHF will co-host with the Georgia Dressage and Combined Training association, Inc., another "L" Program.  Information about that can be found on our USDF Programs page.  GHF, in conjunction with GDCTA will host a USEF "r" Judges Training Program at the GHF Dressage at the Horse Park at the end of April 2017.  

         While GHF membership is not required at our shows, we have made it easy for riders to join our busy organization. If they are entering a GHF schooling show and join on a schooling show entry form, they may deduct $30 ($45 for family membership) from the total show fees if they include the GHF membership form with their entry. 
          Competitions are recognized by USEF and USDF.  Our shows (March and July) and held at Chattahoochee Hills Farm, Fairburn, GA; (April, June and September) are held in the Charles Walker Covered Arena of The Georgia International Horse Park, Conyers, GA.  Our current dates and prize lists (entry forms) can be found on the Calendar page of this website. Scores of those who compete in The Good Horseman
®/Massey Ferguson USEF/USDF competitions are tallied at the end of the year for GHF Year-End High-Score Awards (See Awards Page for details).   Click here if you wish to be a Volunteer.

ELECTRONIC SCOREBOARD HISTORY: In September 2007, Collecting Gaits Farm (Jeff and Shereen Fuqua, Alpharetta, GA) sponsored our first competition using the EquiVu Electronic Scoreboard, developed by Ed Sauer. Later the operation was taken over Sports Tech Productions and run by Phil Thompson and Don Pye.  In 2012, the sponsorship was assumed by Massey Ferguson bringing us our new Massey Ferguson/Good Horseman Electronic Scoreboard which made its debut at the GHF/Massey Ferguson Fall Dressage show in September of 2012.  The scoreboard is operated by IT engineer Lawrence Freil who went to South Dakota in 2012 to pick up the Daktronics scoreboard, took the Daktronics computer training program, and drove it safely to Atlanta.  Lawrence has operated the system at our recognized shows ever since

Our show office is run by a very experienced staff comprised mostly of the Boggs Family members some of whom have been with us for many years.  Our show secretary is Robin Boggs (right) and scorer is her daughter, Kim Boggs Stansell.  Robin's husband, Dennis, does the night watch during the shows and offers special care to the horses.  But what is truly amazing is now the third generation has joined us:  Natalee Kellar (in red shirt) is in charge of the awards table and MaKayla Kellar (back right) is a ring steward.
