Regional Liaison: Kate Bruning
Young KWPN-NA Members: 12
Kate resides in central New Hampshire where she owns and operates a boarding and training facility focusing on dressage and eventing, SMF Equine Services LLC. She has been involved with horses since the age of 3 and competes in dressage. Currently she is bringing along her young 3 year old KWPN gelding Ionesco SSF who has an exciting season ahead. He just started under saddle preparing for his IBOP at this years Keuring.
Kate has always had a passion for dressage and riding but only recently became involved with the KWPN when purchasing Ionesco SSF as a young horse project in the fall of 2015. After attending Keuring in 2016 she was hooked upon meeting all the passionate members, breeders and riders.
With big plans in the works, Kate intends on starting her own breeding program with a newly a acquired broodmare, as well as opening a schooling venue this summer at her home property. Shady Maple Farm will offer schooling opportunities in their large sand dressage arena, grass jump course and a cross country course to include its own water complex.
Kate looks forward to being involved with the Young KWPN-NA and is eager to watch the program grow.
