Kathleen bought her first horse when she was 12, a Welsh pony named Wild. She had Wild until she was 17 until she started riding lessons at Hidden Valley Farm and rode equitation for 6 years. When She was 15 she worked at the barn as well as the local horse shows too even the American Royal. At age 17 she started dressage lessons on a horse named Girl. She got her second horse Chester many years later when her daughter was 4. Kathleen had a long break from horses with college and family. She brought Chester to Misty River and he has since moved to a friend's farm enjoying life. She got a 2 year old named Lace with which she rides and competes in Dressage and she has qualified for the year end championships the last 2 years! Her passion is for kids and family.
