Kelly has over 20 years of experience working with horses in multiple disciplines. While she experimented with Western, Barrel Racing, and Dressage, she fell in love with the Hunter/Jumper world. Kelly began riding before she could walk, and has since put thousands of hours towards perfecting her craft. She began teaching lessons while still in grade school, actively participated in horse sales with her mother by 14, and became a professional hunter/jumper competitor at 18. 

Kelly then went on to receive her Bachelor Degree in Social Ecology from UC Irvine, where she was also captain of the school's equestrian team for 3 years. During that time, she represented UCI in both National and International competition, the first rider ever from her school to do so. 

As a professional, Kelly has had the opportunity compete all across California, and has had the privilege to work for some of the West Coasts' top trainers, including Gry McFarlane of Windfall Farms, Jim Hagman of Elvenstar, Amy Hess of Hess Equine, and Mickey Hayden and Lane Clarke, from Hayden and Clarke Sporthorses. 

In most recent years, Kelly was Head Developer for a large Hanoverian breeding and training facility, where she learned colt starting and groundwork from world-renowned trainers Don and Rachel Jessop. Between partnering with the Jessops, and learning from some of the best vets, massage therapists, chiropractors, and nutritionists in the industry, Kelly has mastered the ability to understand the horse's needs from all angles, giving her clients a full analysis to determine the best training and care needed to both create the most educated, healthy horse possible, and improving the relationship between the horse and its rider. “
