Holley Groshek, Executive Director 

Holley was recently the Director of Administration and Equine Relations for the 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games Foundation where she developed, marketed, and managed the Equine Village Partner program. Additionally, she spent eight years as Executive Director of the Kentucky World Trade Center. Holley holds an MBA with concentration in Marketing and International Business from Binghamton University (N.Y.), as well as a B.S. degree in liberal arts (with emphasis in biochemistry). An avid equestrian, Holley grew up in upstate New York and has more than twenty years of experience riding and competing as an amateur rider. She serves on the Kentucky Equine Humane Center Board of Directors.

Working for ELCR holds a particular interest for Holley because she believes that loss of land for equine use is one of the most critical issues facing the horse world. Holley lives in Lexington with her three dogs Nika, Gucci, and Peggy May. She enjoys riding in her free time.
