Kathi Dancer and the Woodside Junior Riders

At 6 years old, Kathi Dancer and her younger sisters began riding with the Woodside Junior Rider (WJR) program at the Kiely Equestrian Center in Woodside. Years later, when her own children were old enough, Kathi's children rode with the program too. In 1999, after more than 40 years of running Woodside Junior Riders humbly, quietly, and entirely by herself, Ursula Eisenhut decided it was time to pass the baton.

Serving as an early Town Council member, the elder Mr. Patrick put in his time serving his community as a dedicated and revered Town leader.
