Member of the Week: Lisa Parkhurst

Please join us in congratulating this week’s Member of the Week; Lisa Bohanon Parkhust of Virginia. Lisa recently put on her first ACTHA ride as a Ride Host, co-hosted by her daughter, Lindsey. Lisa’s very first ride consisted of 100 riders, no small undertaking for a new Ride Host! Lisa’s ride marks the second 100 rider CTC for a first time Ride Host in 2013, the first taking place in Texas earlier this year.

Lisa embodies all the qualities of a great Ride Host; ambitious, friendly, committed, and maintaining a professional and positive attitude at all times. We highly commend Lisa and her daughter for this tremendous success! Great job, Lisa and Lindsey!

Some of the many great comments from riders at Lisa’s ride include:

“I liked the safety checks. I LOVED the fact that the ride hosts were mother and daughter. Family is what ACHTA is all about. They were terrific.”
“Excellent trails and facility. Lisa and Lyndsey did an excellent job with this event!”
“Obstacles were all fun, safe, challenging and spaced nicely. Each rider got the royal treatment which was very nice.”
“The host was so kind! We had a great time. Loved the pot luck dinner Friday night.”
“Safety check, friendly judges, themed obstacles, silent auction was great, tack swap excellent, mini clinics were good also. Lunch and dinner were terrific.”
“Belmead is the perfect place to do ACTHA. I dearly hope they do another one soon!”
“Pleasent Judges (men at Bridge were GREAT)”
“Beautiful place to ride and everyone was so super nice!!!!! Workers & riders”
“Beautiful area! Definitely will come back to Belmeade.”
“The person in charge was very helpful and made this ride fun not stressful.”
“Judges were fun and helpful”
“Very organized and creative, would definitely go back to this host’s rides.”
“For the size of the ride it went very smoothly and the scores came out on schedule. That was very nice. We drove over 3 hours and we couldn’t camp so keeping on schedule so we could get home at a decent hour was a definite plus.”
