Kristin Adams, President

 

Kristin has been showing at Tri-County since the age of 6. Over the years, she's shown hunt seat, western and saddle seat. You can still catch Kristin showing at Tri-County in the Western classes on her Paint, Gunner. 

Tri-County helped Kristin develop key riding and showmanship skills that allowed her to excel on the Maine 4-H team from 2004 through 2012.

Jessica Lombardo, Vice President

TCH has always been a family affair for Jessica. She began riding and showing at the age of 3 on her pony, Ginger. Her favorite horse was her father's horse, Lydia. Most recently, Jessica has shown her horse Gypsy and brought her children up through Leadline and even participated in costume classes with her sister, Erica. Jessica has previously served as TCH President, and after a brief hiatus, she returns as Vice President. We look forward to seeing her in the showring with her gelding, Sweet Peppy.

Chris Miller, Board Member

Chris took her first riding lesson at 6 and has been hooked ever since. She has ridden and shown saddle seat, western, hunt seat, and dressage. As a child and young adult she was a successful member of her local 4-H team in Indiana and competed successfully on her college riding team.

Horses are the heart of her entire family who are always busy attending Tri-Couny, Pony Club, CMDA, and 4-H events in addition to recreational riding throughout the state. Her family has five horses, but she is most often seen aboard her solid chestnut Paint, Norfleeting Jet.

Brooke Hamar has been in the horse world since she was a young girl learning to ride with Helen Moore in Warren at Hill and Dale Stables. After some time off, about 10 years ago, Brooke and her family took 2 horses from Maine to Wisconsin for 5 years, before returning to Maine with 4!

Brooke enjoys trail rides on her 22 year old Quarter Horse mare and being a "Show Mom" to her daughter Maggie and a few friends. Brook has loved the show opportunities afforded to her daughter as she began her show career.
