USPC would like to highlight the National Youth Board Members for the current term. Today we meet Area 5 member Ella Rak.
Ella Rak is an 18 year old H-HM from Difficult Run Pony Club in Vienna, Virginia. A Freshman at Virginia Tech, she spends her free time in route to, or at the barn. Ella enjoys eventing the 20 year old TB gelding she leases at the Beginner Novice level, with a move up planned. She has been stable manager at many more rallies than she has ridden in, harboring her love for the horse management aspect of Pony Club and giving her the skills to be a working student for local eventers.
Outside of horses she enjoys hiking, writing, and spending time with her other pets, though she is not away from horses often.
