Board of Directors

Tim Lovett, Chair
Lovett & Lovett Executive Search

Founded Lovett Executive Search and for 33 plus years purposely working for privately-held to mid-size and publicly traded companies and organizations locally and nationally to strategically advise, attract, and acquire top leadership talent for their enhancement.

Most distinctly TRI has allowed me to witness accredited therapeutic equine encounters that have made miraculous progress with the disabled through the partnership formed between the horse and human. As the Board Chair of the Therapeutic Riding Institute, I am passionate and fortunate to be a part of this organization.

Nathan Hunt, Secretary
Thompson Hine LLP

Nathan Hunt has been an attorney at Thompson Hine LLP since 2001. His law practice focuses on environmental, health, and safety matters. He and his wife of 25 years and their three children are longtime residents of Springboro, Ohio. Nathan’s interest in horses was sparked by his mother, a woman with a lifetime passion for all things equine. In his childhood, Nathan learned to ride and care for horses at riding camps and later at his family’s small horse farm in Bellbrook, Ohio where he specialized in cleaning stalls. Nathan joined the TRI board in 2018 and currently serves as the board’s secretary. TRI’s mission of assisting others via equine therapy is what drew him to the organization.

Susan Lewis
Kettering Network Radiologists

After taking up riding later in life I was inspired to volunteer after meeting one of the TRI Instructors, Ms. Eryn Olson.  My TRI experience has been incredibly rewarding.  The TRI staff, equine partners, participants, and volunteers are amazing!
