Finding great matches between riders and horses is a priority at Kelly Maddox Training. We feel that every rider has a style and feel that fits a different horse. Taking the time to find good matches between horse and rider is vital in building rider confidence. It is critical that horse and rider have a positive relationship to become a successful team.

"I came to KMT after being in a training program that was less than consistent, so it was a major relief to find a structured program. I love her weekly KMT updates and beginning of the year show schedule; they always keep me in the loop. When it comes to her training, well that's even better. Over the last year I have had a horse that has been very challenging yet very good for me. Kelly has dedicated so much time to help me to grow as an individual and with my horse to be the most competitive I could be in the show ring. I appreciate every moment in her program, thank you Kelly!"

"My daughters and I moved to KMT back in 2009. We have loved the challenging and fun learning environment plus the top quality horses. KMT is not only a show barn, but emphasizes horsemanship and all around horse and rider care. If dyou love every aspect of riding and horsemanship, this is the perfect place!!!"

"Our daughter has been riding horses since she was 7 years old and began riding with KMT about a year an half ago. Her confidence on and off the horse has shot through the roof. She speaks often of her trust in the trainers and loves having yearly goals meetings to give her direction. Time spent with the other barn riders is not only fun, but inspirational as they learn from and alongside each other. We love the varied experiences she has been able to participate in such as IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association), clinics, KMT schooling shows, and opportunities to compete in "A" and "B" rated shows. Dedication, responsibility, leading by example, and compassion are consistently shown by trainers, riders, and parents each and every day at KMT as they all come together over a genuine love of horses."
