Jason Tice has been the Executive Director for the Friesian Horse Association North America (FHANA) for more than 13 years. He came to FHANA based on his experience with membership management and event planning. Previously, he did event planning for the senior PGA tour on events like the Allianz Championship and the senior LPGA tour on events such as the HyVee classic. Tice has watched the Friesian breed grow in popularity in North America, especially in the world of sport and with the Amish community. Not only can this breed compete at high levels of dressage and driving, but now it is having success in western dressage. Originally from Ames, Iowa, and a graduate of Iowa State University, his interest in horses started when he met his wife, Jessica.
