Specializing in Importing select PRE Dressage Horses with the aptitude & stamina to become willing & reliable dressage partners
Kensington Ridge PRE’s (Pura Raza Española), a division of Kensington Ridge Farms, specializes in importing hand selected PRE (aka Andalusian) mares from Spain to the United States. At Kensington Ridge Farms we feel that PRE mares have been over looked for competitive riding. The cornerstone of our business is to train, promote and sell PRE mares for dressage. We select mares that have the aptitude and stamina to become willing and reliable dressage partners. This includes identifying, the natural talent, confirmation, specific body type and temperament needed for dressage.
We are extremely fortunate to have assembled a highly experienced team of Veterinarians, Trainers/Riders and Breeders here the United States and Spain that assist with all aspects of the acquisition, development and sales process at Kensington Ridge Farms.
We are a small farm that keeps a limited number of PRE Dressage Horses in the United States. We do so intentionally, so we have ample time to focus our energy on their developmental needs. We do not rush any aspect of our process. Our horse’s wellbeing is our first priority. No mare will be sold unless we feel she is absolutely ready to go to her forever home.
Kensington Ridge Farms will occasionally import PRE Dressage Stallions and Geldings from time to time, however, it is usually by request only. If you are interested in purchasing a Pure Spanish Dressage Horse like a stallion or gelding we do provide a concierge service for our clients. You may be as specific or as open as you like with your request. We will do everything we can to find your dream PRE Dressage Stallion or Gelding.
