founder & board president

Cheryl Sims’ involvement with Wills Park spans decades. Her daughter Alison grew up riding at the park and is now a professional rider and trainer. Cheryl founded Cheryl & Co in 2003 and, with her son Jay, manages local horse shows at Wills Park and surrounding venues. Her family’s experience in the industry drove Cheryl’s vision for a reinvigorated, renovated Wills Park Equestrian Center that would positively impact both the horse community and the City of Alpharetta.


Michael Gelb is the owner of Hunters Glen Equestrian Center, Wilsun Custom Horse Products and Sterling Creek Enterprises. He was introduced to horses in the 1990s at Huntcliff Equestrian Center.

Jeff Felton’s interest in the efforts of Wills Park Equestrian Foundation was cultivated while watching the transformative power of the sport through his daughter, Wyette.
