Longtime Lake Placid Horse Show exhibitor Philip Richter will be taking over the chairmanship of the show in the Adirondacks from Richard Feldman.
Richard, who was devoted to the show, shepherded it through growth and many changes. He announced his retirement last weekend as the fixture’s annual two-week run drew to a close. Philip competes with distinction in amateur-owner jumper classes and has a thorough knowledge of the show and what it involves.
Lake Placid is an exhibitor favorite for its scenic setting and relaxing atmosphere, which Philip understands and appreciates after a lifetime of competing there. A New York resident, Philip is co-chief executive officer of Hollow Brook Wealth Management.
