“This is an exciting time for me to become President of the USET Foundation,” said Tucker Johnson who competed internationally in four-in-hand driving. “I have been fortunate to have been both an athlete who has competed and medaled at the World Equestrian Games, as well as served on the Federation’s Board and as Treasurer of the USET Foundation, so I know how important the funding means to our athletes in their preparation and at international championships. I am committed, in partnership with the tremendous Board of the Foundation, to do everything we can to continue to provide funding that will make this country a force to be reckoned with at the 2014 World Equestrian Games and 2016 Olympic Games.”
