Membership Director – 2024

Hello TTCC Members, 

I want to take a moment to introduce our two candidates who are running for the Membership Director Position this Fall. They are Mary Ann Brandon and Teresa Corgill. 

They have both written an introduction about themselves that is posted below.

Thank you for taking the time to read and “meet” these two amazing ladies. They will have the opportunity to speak at Wyatt Ranch next weekend. 

Thank you so much,

Tiffany Janke 

TTCC Treasurer


Hello fellow members! 

My name is Mary Ann Brandon, and I have been a member of TTCC for eight years. 

During this time, I have been a ride manager, judge and volunteer. This year I am educating my fifth horse in the club! 

My background is psychology and teaching in secondary education. I am a people person and looking forward to meeting every member. 

I love sharing what I have learned in the horse world, from professionals and members of this club.  

I have some exciting ideas for fundraising, such as TTCC logo number holders, and a saddle raffle!

I also have corporate sponsors ready to support our club. 

In other disciplines I participate in,   there are often pre-ride clinics, which are incredibly helpful… I would love to explore this idea in TTCC. 

I would also like to research and create a “living document” that delineates the history of this club from the start!

I am excited to be your next membership director!


Let me introduce myself to the TTCC members who do not know me. Are there any? If so, I will be stalking you if I’m elected Membership Director because I believe that is part of the job. I want to know all of you personally so you will be comfortable approaching me with any new ideas or concerns that you have about our club.

I am Teresa Corgill, also known as TJ, and I ride the cute little black and white Gypsy Vanner Abby. 

In 2015 I joined TTCC, and I found my tribe. I love that we care more about camaraderie and partnership with our horses than about competition. I will fight to keep it that way.

For those of you who do not know me, I have been into horses all of my life. From riding horses all over town with friends in junior and high school, to showing in weekly open shows after college, to big time showing in AQHA, to building an equine business where I stood an AQHA Champion at stud and sold horses all over the world, to a partial retirement when I found competitive trail riding. I wish I had found TTCC much earlier. It has been my favorite of all.

During my AQHA days I was on the Board of Directors of Arizona Quarter Horse Association. We put on one of the largest show circuits in the US. It was a week long and sometimes had up to eight arenas going at once. That endeavor took quite a bit of planning and organization. I also served as President of the Board of Directors of Alamo Quarter Horse Breeders Association where we sponsored two large circuits every year at the Rose Palace in San Antonio.. 

As a member of both BODs I learned to listen to all sides of a problem and to do what is best for the club, even if it means going against friends.

Since joining TTCC I have been very active in the club. I was awarded the Iron Rider vest in 2017. I’ve only missed one or two rides during all of the other years that I’ve ridden with TTCC. I am a judge, a senior judge and a ride manager. I purchased year end awards for Celebration for two years.

Please consider voting for me at the Membership Director. TTCC is genuinely a big part of my life and I feel the need to give back to a club I love.
