USEF Press Release


Julie Muth Goodman, a partner with the law firm of Dinsmore & Shohl LLP in Lexington, Kentucky, will join the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) as General Counsel and Senior Vice President on June 1st. During her twenty-four years of practice, Ms. Goodman has obtained a national reputation as a leading trial attorney in product liability, construction defect and class action litigation. For the last nine years and while a partner at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, Ms. Goodman has been national coordinating counsel for one of the world's largest insurance companies and has successfully litigated and managed hundreds of such lawsuits nationwide. Before going into private practice, she served as an Assistant Commonwealth Attorney in Fayette County, Kentucky and as an Assistant Attorney General in Frankfort, Kentucky.

“The USEF is very fortunate to have an attorney with Ms. Goodman’s extensive national experience to serve as our General Counsel. As the National Governing Body of Equestrian Sport in the United States we have many new opportunities and challenges. She will be an important part of our executive team focused on growing equestrian sport in this country,” said John Long, Chief Executive Officer of the USEF.

The USEF, a non-profit organization, was formed when the former USA Equestrian joined with the United States Equestrian Team (USET) to form one organization on December 1st, 2003. It has over 80,000 members and is the country’s largest multi-breed organization representing 26 breeds of horses and performance disciplines at over 2800 horse shows and events each year. It is the organization that fields the international high performance equestrian teams including the teams for the Olympic Games, Pan American Games and World Championships. The national headquarters is at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

Ms. Goodman is a native of Lexington, and received her undergraduate degree at Transylvania University and her J.D. at the University of Kentucky College of Law. Ms. Goodman is admitted to the Bar in both Kentucky and New York. Her family has been actively involved in the thoroughbred industry for many years. “The USEF will be a new and challenging professional opportunity for me, and it brings me back to the equine world which is part of my family heritage and personal interest,” she said.
