Kelly: 'True visionary' corralled equestrian World Cup for Omaha
So how did Omaha even get in the mix, let alone win the host-site designation for the FEI World Cup of dressage and show jumping March 29 through April 2 at the CenturyLink Center?
Well, the short answer is that one Omahan had a vision and wouldn't let go. Her name is Lisa Yanney Roskens, and she apparently wowed the international committee members with her 2014 presentation in Lausanne, Switzerland.
