“My daughter has been riding with Kerry as her trainer since she first mounted a horse 14 years ago.  Despite being an accomplished professional event rider, Kerry excels at bringing young kids totally new to riding up through the ranks with special attention to horsemanship, and instilling confidence in young riders.  Safety and care for the horses and riders always come first.  I attribute much of my daughter’s academic success and solid work ethic to the examples set by Kerry.  From the first lead-line class to national competitions, Kerry has been there for my daughter as a trainer, coach and a friend.  She exemplifies the important aspects of life … that it’s not about blue ribbons; it’s all about confidence, commitment, endurance, and triumph in the face of adversity.” – Sandy Eldridge
