Person of the Week: Karin Offield
Here in northern Michigan, there are a lot of people making a difference in their communities. We’re recognizing those who make an impact with the “MI News 26 Person of the Week.”
This week, we’re recognizing a woman dedicated to promoting equestrian sports.
Those nominating Karin Offield said she runs a program giving members of the YMCA in Harbor Springs and Petoskey an introduction to horseback riding. She’s also been a long-time supporter of dressage competitions across of the country.
In addition, Offield produced a documentary — “Harry and Snowman” — about a trainer who saved a horse from a slaughterhouse… leading that horse to become a national show jumping champion. That film was submitted to the Sundance Film Festival.
For all her work in the field of equestrian sports — both locally in Harbor Springs and around the county, Karin Offield has been named this week’s Person of the Week.
If you know of someone who’s working hard in their own community — whether that’s by making an extraordinary accomplishment in school, volunteering for a local non-profit, or just impacting the area in their own unique way — send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
