On February 1, 2011 over 200 equestrians gathered for the North American Riders Group (NARG) annual meeting to learn about their 2010 accomplishments and 2011 priorities. Murray Kessler, NARG board member, opened the meeting with a review of the agenda. He stated NARG’s mission is “to unite professional riders and trainers to use their collective strength to make show jumping in North America the best in the world.” NARG defines the best horse shows as being professionally managed, having excellent footing, top quality courses, the most prize money, reasonable entry fees, good atmosphere and entertainment, and a growing spectator base. Kessler then introduced the highly accomplished and experienced Board of Directors which includes multiple Olympic medalists and top trainers in the sport of show jumping. Murray then turned the microphone over to Will Simpson, NARG board member, who reviewed 2010 accomplishments.
