KMC Farm provides training for riders of all levels from the walk-trot to the grand prix, and in all major English riding disciplines. Owner and head trainer, Kara Love, has built a community that spans beyond the show arena, bringing together a group with one main shared interest - a deep love for horses – in a fun and supportive environment.
Kara Mia Love
Kara has been riding for as long as she can remember, making her way through the pony ranks and on to the equitation and jumper rings. Through her junior years, Kara trained with Marian Nelson and was a working student at a ranch near her hometown. Once she turned professional KMC Farm was born. Her students have gone on to win many year-end championships and equitation finals including the Norcal Junior Medal Finals, Almaden Medal Finals, and more. Kara lives in Point Reyes with her husband, Tyler and daughter, Ella (the youngest member of the KMC team). Kara is one of County Saddlery’s professional trainers.
Celia has been riding with Kara since she was 15 and has been winning in the hunter, jumper and equitation rings. In 2008, she was champion in the Almaden Medal Finals, and most recently competes in the jumpers with her horse, Tiramisu. After graduating from Sonoma State University in 2013, Celia turned professional, deciding there was no job better then spending every waking hour at the barn. In spring of 2014, Celia was invited to travel to Ireland to train and compete with James Kernan. Learning the European riding culture and techniques adds to the value Celia brings to the team. Celia loves teaching young riders and watching them progress through the ranks. Celia is sponsored by Equine Omega Complete and is one of County Saddlery’s professional trainers.

What Kara taught my daughters goes far beyond the show ring. Lessons about compassion and team work will last a lifetime.
We value the positive, honest and supportive horse experience that Kara and her team bring to our family.
