The USEF is the governing body of equestrian sports and with the dedication of it’s permanent home in the Horse Park, anchoring the 30 odd organizations that also choose to be based here, it’s a huge commitment and investment in the Park, Lexington and Kentucky. The building is impossible to miss - it’s not only big and beautiful but it’s also front and centre as you drive in the main entrance, and practically the first thing you see on the building are the Olympic and Paralympic Rings.

The USEF has 155 employees and more than 145,000 members. The 35,000 square foot, 2 story building is on Wing Commander Way in the Kentucky Horse Park. 

Listeners might remember Lederman and her English accent from when she was a morning news anchor on WUKY from 1999 to 2001.
