Meet the 2024 Executive Board and Board of Directors
Greg Wilkins - President
Hi, I'm a career firefighter with over 33 years on the Muncie Fire Department and currently hold the rank of Battalion Chief.
Nancy and I have been members of the Muncie Light Horse Club since 1989. During that time one or both of us have been on the board in one capacity or another.
I am also a board member on the Indiana Trail Riders Association in my second term. I have been actively involved in the development and maintenance of the Prairie Creek horse trails for the past two decades.
We enjoy trail riding and camping with our horses.
LuAnn Williams - Vice President
I will begin my role as MLHC Vice President in January 2024 and have been a member of the MLHC for many years. I am an active member and throughout the years have been on the Board of Directors in different roles that include but are not limited to secretary, Vice President, President, and even immediate past President. I love riding horses and the camaraderie the club has to offer. We are a small club with lots of potential.
I have been a massage therapist for 35 years and belong to the American Massage Therapy Association, where I have also served on the board of directors for several years. Love my profession and have enjoyed and appreciated all the people that have come my way, but I am happy to say I am now semi-retired.
I am married to Rodney; we have 3 grown children with 5 grandkids and 10 great-grandkids. We have 4 Tennessee Walking horses, Doc, Lilly, Lexus, and Moses, and 5 dogs, Chance, Stella, Ace, Myra, and Ellie Mae at our home. I wish I could say that Rodney enjoys the animals as much as I do, but I can only say he accepts them for me. Looking forward to new and wonderful things for 2024.
Ilene Parrish - Treasurer
Hello, I have been a member for about 20 years. Since the doctor told my husband it was not a good idea for him to be out riding a horse, we had to sell them.
We still enjoy being around all the MLHC people and horses and helping with events. My hobbies include kayaking, biking, camping, and scrap-booking, and being with family & friends.
Stacey Hutson - Secretary & Social Media Person
My name is Stacey Hutson, and I’ve been a member of MLHC for a year, even though I have camped and ridden the trails at Indian Hill for longer.
I have 3 horses, 2 miniature donkeys, and a mule. My little pinto mare is an Arabian cross and is my primary ride for trails, and my 16 hh appendix is my backup. My 3-year-old is currently in training, but will be amazing! I love the adventure of going to new places and riding new trails.
I am married to Danny Hutson and have 6 grown children between the 2 of us. I have been a teacher for 23 years and am currently a math teacher at The Excel Center.
My involvement in the MLHC would be to organize more youth programs or events in equestrian education and disciplines.
Nancy Wilkins - Board Members
Rhonda Read - Board Member
Hello, I have served as the secretary, president, past president, and even board member for the MLHC in recent years.
I am a supervisor for Conduent, a brand-new company derived from Xerox split into two companies. My team and I process applications for needy families in Indiana.
I grew up on a farm in Kentucky and got my first pony at the age of three, I think you can say that I was born with a love of horses. Enjoy camping, trail riding, benefit rides, riding in parades, and all the wonderful friendships that I have formed through membership in the Muncie Light Horse Club over the last ten years.
Micah Hardy - Board Member
Hello, I have grown up with horses my entire life, as well as having been a part of The Muncie Light Horse Club, with my mother, since a child.
I trail ride, barrel race, and pole bend. Horses are my life, love, and passion. I love camping, hiking with my dogs, and being outdoors. I LOVE dogs as well, I want to own a corgi, a long-haired dachshund, and an English or Australian shepherd in my lifetime.
I love spending time with my family, friends, and my boyfriend, Colten. I also enjoy working out to stay healthy and fit. I try to go to the gym five times a week, along with cooking healthy meals, I am a sucker for sweets though! When I am not enjoying my hobbies,
I am a full-time real estate agent with Re/Max Real Estate Solutions, wanting to specialize in horse farms. I also work part-time at a wedding venue, The Crystal Coop in Anderson.
Overall, I am excited to be a board member of the club and help bring new and fresh ideas to Muncie Light Horse Club!
Rickie Sipe - Board Member
I work in an exciting job where I get to meet new people and help friends with their real estate needs, my husband Ron is retired.
We have a wonderful farm we call Autumn Dream, and we have 7 walkers and one very spoiled pony that also calls Autumn Dream home.
Although we have slowed down our trail riding, we still love to camp and ride. In the past, we have traveled all over the country experiencing the joy of seeing nature at its finest while riding our wonderful horses as they bring such joy.
