About

Kelli Ann Kinney Was Born to Ride -- Just Ask Her Mom!

Kelli's Mom Kelli's Mom will be the first to tell you...It was clear right from the outset that Kelli Ann Kinney was destined to be Super Star rider. Since 1972, the Kinney family had owned and operated Jest-A-Bit Farm, a standardbred racing stable. As a little girl, her Mom knew just where to find Kelli. Down at the motorized walker. Any chance Kelli could get, she would climb on the backs of the horses that were tied up the contraption to cool down after one of her Father's training sessions.

As she started to ride on her own, it wasn't long before Kelli was galloping down the road to competition success. As a young girl, she was a member of the Middlesex County 4-H and the Groton United States Pony Club. With those organizations she competed successfully in Dressage, Combined Training and Hunter Jumpers.

Olympic Level Training

With that much talent, it was important right from the beginning that Kelli sought out top notch training. From 1980-1985 Kelli had the honor of competing and riding as a senior student with Carol Lavell, one of the 1992 Summer Olympics bronze medal dressage team winners in Barcelona.

Since 1985 Kelli has also trained as a senior student with Michael Poulin. Michael, who is not only one of the founding fathers of dressage sport in America, he is also a bronze medal winner in team dressage at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, together with Robert Dover, Carol Lavell, and Charlotte Bredahl.

Natural Horsemanship Expertise

Kelli felt that while she had a broad range of horse training knowledge and experience on the "English" side of the saddle, she wanted to know more. So she trained with Kenny Harlow’s natural horsemanship program “Training with Trust “ to incorporate roundpenning and problem solving (trailer issues included) as well as a new safer way to break young horses to prepare them for their owners.

Diverse National Level Experience

In 2001, her exposure to Western style training led her give "cowboy competition" a try. She entered into the new FEI sport of reining where she now also Reiningcompetes nationally and teaches. Kelli has competed throughout the east coast including the All American Quarter Horse Congress being in the top 13 riders nationally.

Make Your Horse Dreams Come True...

But Kelli is not just a successful rider in her own right. She is a compassionate trainer of horse and rider. For Kelli, no horse is ever turned away. With her lifetime professional knowledge of training horses combined with her having apprenticed with top Natural Horse trainers, she has the tools and ability to help even the most difficult horse to become a good citizen.

She also encourages anyone who would like to ride. Age and lack of previous experience is no boundary to learning to ride with Kelli.
