Kendra Owen-Riley - Instruction & Training
Kendra Owen-Riley is a professional trainer, instructor, and carded judge with 24 years of
experience. Her background includes all aspects of starting young horses all the way up to
coaching and competing at the National and World level.
Kendra began her career in 1990 after attending Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI
majoring in Equine Studies and achieving Dean’s List. After her freshman year at Johnson &
Wales she was offered an assistant/apprentice position in Ashland, VA where she spent the next
2 ½ years working under Herm Sherwin and showing Appaloosas and Quarter Horses that were
part of their successful show string. Together they trained and showed several Regional
Champions, Futurity money winners, a National Champion Novice Youth, and had several top
10 in the Nation placings. After leaving Virginia once her apprenticeship was completed she
continued to train and teach at Show and Performance horse training facilities in NJ, CT, ME, NH
and MA where she coached and assisted with multiple Top 10 in the Nation horses and riders.
This extensive experience inspired her to begin accepting offers to perform Instructional clinics
across the Northeast. As well, she has performed riding, Showmanship, and breed-specific
demonstrations as such prestigious events as the AQHA Region 6 Experience , Fidelity
Investments Jumper Classic Family Day, and Massachusetts Equine Affaire.
In addition, Kendra carries Judge’s cards with New England Horseman’s Council holding her #1
rated Western judge’s card, Open Horse Show Association, New England 4-H, and is an AQHA
Professional Horsewoman member.
Kendra is proud to offer a comprehensive lesson and training program that is designed to help
horse and rider gain understanding of how to properly communicate through proven training
techniques and riding exercises that are presented at the level that is appropriate for the student.
She offers a very knowledgeable, friendly, and approachable demeanor and her motto is
“Creating Harmony Between Horse and Human”.
