Hello Kensington Ridge Farms followers. Our girls have arrived. They are safe, healthy and tired. It will be sometime before they recover from their journey. I don’t like to rush to jump in the saddle. I want to build a bond and get to know them. I believe that if they trust you they will do anything for you. Which makes training much more enjoyable for rider and horse. I am already enjoying the interaction I am having with each girl. They could not be more different from one another. First we need them to settle down and rest, then the vet will give them the “all clear”. Farrier will come in and make any necessary adjustments to their feet and finally the saddle fitter will custom fit their saddles. Then we begin building up their fitness level and finally the training will start. However, the fitness training and dressage training will all depend on the horses ability and willingness. I will not force anything. At KRF will always take our time bringing a horse along. There will be no exceptions to that. The animal’s wellbeing always comes first. Continue to check back for updates and you may follow us on Facebook for more current updates at Kensington Ridge Farms.
