NDSU Equestrians Elected to National Office

Two NDSU Collegiate Horsemen’s Association members will hold national offices.

Two members of North Dakota State University’s Collegiate Horsemen’s Association were elected to the American Collegiate Horsemen’s Association’s National Officer Board during the national convention in Fort Worth, Texas.

Senior Janelle Lanoue of Alexandria, Minn., was elected treasurer and sophomore Codie Miller of Prior Lake, Minn., was selected as national representative.

They were among 12 members of the NDSU Collegiate Horsemen’s Association to attend the national convention hosted by Texas A&M University in January and four from North Dakota to seek office on the national board.

The conference included tours of equine facilities specializing in various areas of the industry, including racing, reining and halter. Conference participants also visited the stockyards and attended the Fort Worth Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Following the industry portion of the conference, participants attended business meetings; panel discussions with top industry professionals; and breakout sessions on membership, fundraising and event planning.

“NDSU was well-represented at the convention, and it is a big accomplishment for the club to have two members serving on the national board,” says NDSU Collegiate Horsemen’s Association adviser Tara Swanson.
