Rider | Trainer
Twin Oaks is ‘home’ to rider, trainer, and coach Kim Rose. As a junior rider in the 70’s and early 80’s, Kim competed on the A-circuit in Hunters, Jumpers, and Equitation, winning numerous championships including multiple equitation medals.
Kim presents her approach to riding hunters and hunt seat equitation with insightful enthusiasm. She believes that riding well is a matter of mastering the basics; a rider with a solid foundation is capable of effectively communicating with their horse. Kim teaches the principles of quality hunt seat riding with a focus on perfect equitation, both on the flat and over fences. Focus on the “ideal” helps riders succeed in the show ring and enjoy the ride along the way.
Kim’s expertise includes starting youngsters and training/conditioning competitors (horses as well as riders). In addition to her day job, Kim holds her USEF “Pro”-card and prepares clients at Twin Oaks for success on the A-circuit.
