Karen has been involved with horses in some form most of her life. She started as a Western rider under her fathers and friends instruction. When she was about 11-12 yrs old she saw Spruce Meadows on TV and fell in love with the sport of Show Jumping. Karen also fell head over heels in love with the Thoroughbred when she worked at Northlands Racetrack in the mid 80's. Karen has trained most of her own horses and horses for others and she is now looking forward to this new exciting endeavor of breeding fine performance horses.
