ELCR’s Advisory Board provides a means for experts on a variety of topics such as land conservation, horses, and not-for-profit management to assist the organization in a formal, recognized capacity. ELCR President Georgiana Hubbard McCabe stated, “Our Advisory Board members are a uniquely qualified group of individuals who give generously of their time and talent. We are fortunate to have assembled such a distinguished group of professionals. We are grateful for their commitment to our mission of conserving land for horses.”

Her competition experience includes 4-H, quarter horses, hunter/jumpers, dressage, eventing, and Paso Fino’s. She has experience in the Standardbred and thoroughbred racing world including at Pine Hollow Stud while Niatross was standing. Additionally, Karen served as Farm Manager at the Cornell University Research Farm. Isberg is also a member of ELCR’s Marketing and Communication Committee.

ELCR CEO Deb Balliet said, “We are privileged to have the guidance and support of Karen Isberg. She is the consummate equestrian and an exemplary steward of the land. Karen has demonstrated her commitment to land conservation and stewardship in the best possible way, teaching her children and the local scouting groups by her example.

Rick Potts is the Chief of Conservation and Outdoor Recreation for the National Parks Service. Potts, a wildlife biologist, is a graduate of the National Parks Service Natural Resource Specialist Training Program.

According to Equestrian Land Conservation Resource CEO, Deb Balliet, “Rick Potts is a great addition to our Advisory Board. His extensive experience in working with the land, land managers, trail users, and horses is of great benefit to us. Rick’s leadership in the horse community is exceptional.

We are extremely fortunate to have someone with his experience, and vision on our team.”
