Hello, I'm Andrea Osmond, and I proudly assumed the role of president for the High Plains Dressage Chapter in August 2023. My journey in the equestrian world began in childhood, evolving into a passion for dressage during my teen years. With over a decade of experience as a professional horse trainer alongside a full-time career in real estate, I'm thrilled to merge my two worlds. Being deeply committed to the Rocky Mountain Dressage Society, I eagerly look forward to leading our chapter in organizing fantastic learning and showing opportunities for our dynamic dressage community.
Vice President 2024
Hi, I am Cecilia Madison and excited to be the Vice President for the High Plains Dressage Chapter. I started riding as a child back in Sweden and spent summers at my cousin's riding school in Denmark. Once I arrived in the US and started college in Chicago I was able to get my first horse and worked as a barn manager to cover board. My journey eventually took me to Colorado after meeting my husband. Kids and career put my dressage journey on the backburner for several years. Kids are now in high school and I am able to pick it back up. I thoroughly enjoy learning with my horses and am always looking for new opportunities to grow. I have seen a big change towards a more welcoming community over the past 20 years and am very excited to be able to be part of a community making dressage accessible to every level rider and type of horse.
My name is Tiffany. While I grew up with a love of horses I did not have access to any until I bought my first horse when I was 36. I began riding in Dressage about 2.5 years ago and I absolutely love it. I love to learn and can often be found at clinics or volunteering at shows as a scribe. I joined High Plains in February and I enjoy being part of the wonderful community we have in this area!
I've been riding my entire life, starting with English lessons at 10 and transitioning from hunters and jumpers to dressage at 16 due to my passion for three-day eventing. My mother imported two Danish horses for eventing, but they turned out to excel in dressage. I became a working student globally, earning my gold medal in 1997. While raising four accomplished daughters, three of whom reached young rider levels in three-day eventing, my riding career took a backseat. Now, with the kids out in the world, my barn is filled with their retired horses and my unicorn—a part-time eventer, part-time dressage star, and full-time best horse in the world!
Chair of Marketing 2024
I've been riding since I was about 10 years old, and I've done everything from barrel racing to the 1.25m show jumpers. I started in dressage when I was younger, and now I'm back with my 9 year old mare that I've converted from the jumpers! I've always loved everything about horses. I have been in the pony club for the last 3 years, and I have my C-2 rating. I am a member of DECA and national honor society at my high school. I also play volleyball for my school and club. I am very excited to be on the board for this upcoming season!
I’m a beginner rider but a lifelong lover of horses and children. Things I’m learning from them both- to listen, set boundaries, overcome fear, trust, lead, play nice with others, the value of a hard day’s work, and you cannot fool a horse or child.
Chair of Education 2024
Hi!My name is Andrea Kucharczyk. I grew up on a small hobby farm, in Michigan surrounded by horses from the time I could walk. As a freshmen In high school I was introduced to the world of dressage and fell in love with the sport. The next four years I spent every waking hour I could working beside my dressage trainer learning everything that I could. Since then I have started training along with receiving my Bachelor’s in Exercise Science and have been blessed to share my passion for dressage and fitness to my clients.
Chair of Shows 2024
My name is Cindy LeFevre and I have been involved with the Colorado Dressage Community for more than 50 years as a trainer, instructor, competitor and volunteer. I feel lucky to have had amazing Dressage Shows for myself and my students to attend during this time. Recent years have seen a steady decline in the number of quality Dressage Shows available in this area. The remaining shows seem to fill at astronomical speed leaving unmet demand at every level; USDF, RMDS, and even Schooling Shows. Please join me in helping to revive this – I would love to hear your ideas! This is a picture of my current horse, Uno, who is a registered Quarter Horse and the two of us showing PSG.
