Welcome UBRA Missouri State Director Julie Williams!

Welcome UBRA Missouri State Director Julie Williams!

Hello everyone, my name is Julie Williams.  I am your new Missouri State UBRA Director.  I just took this position on the 3rd but I am figuring all this out as quick as I can.

Please share with me what you like, dislike, and what you would like to see for our state.
I have been in this crazy horse world all my life.  Grew up racing and showing and in most recent years was one of the Creators of the “Back to School Blast” horse show in Springfield Missouri, was the NBHA 02 Director for 2013 to 2016, am currently the Barrel Race coordinator for the Longhorn Arena, and way to many things in between all of that. I retired this last June as a Battalion Chief from the Fire Department in Springfield Missouri.  Those plans of setting around reading books all day have so far not happened.   I don’t know everything but we can figure it all out together.  I believe that information is power and the more we all know the stronger our organization will be.
I live in Republic Missouri with my non-horsey but very supportive husband Jason and 2 teenage daughters, Macenzie and Bailie.  Macenzie breathes horses like me and Bailie breathes Volleyball.  Keeping up with those 2 keeps the wheels hot.
I will be contacting all the past and current members by email to try to build Missouri UBRA.  You are the first group to receive an email.  Let me know your thoughts and wishes.
We already have a couple plans for some UBRA Tour events in Missouri.
If you would like to host a race, sanction a race, help, make a suggestion, offer your support or condolences, please email me or call.
Thanks in advance,
Julie Williams
