About Us

About Us - Karen and Mike

We built our horse facility in 2002 and are continually making improvements. We had a vision that we wanted to see come to life. With a lot of hard work, we have been blessed to be able to keep our herd at home and to be able to share our facility with others during our home based clinics. Our passion for putting the horse first has lead us down a long path with many outstanding horsemen and women.

About Us - Riding Broadway JackKaren starting out riding hunter/jumpers as a kid and has 40+ years of experience with horses. She has most recently studied with Joe Wolter, Mark Russell, Dee Janelle, Martin Black, Jillian Kreinbring, Buck Brannaman, Ray Hunt and others.

Karen and Mike started another journey with Working Equitation. A sport that allows us to apply all the knowledge we’ve gained over the years. We thought it important to become very knowledgable about the sport and the rules in order to help educate others in our area.  Karen has earned her Judging license and a Technical Delegate license for Working Equitation through the Confederation for Working Equitation.

Karen is also a certified Level 1 Equine Specialist with the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA). As student of nutrition, Karen incorporates balanced nutrition as part of KarMik Acres’ whole horse care. We strongly believe in keeping our horse’s environment and diet as natural and organic as we possibly can in today’s world. Our favorite feed supplements are Cool Stance and Advanced Biologic Concepts – organic minerals.
