“I have ridden with many instructors for multiple years. Kim’s approach at 3 Peas in a Pony is refreshing. Her blend of shrewd analysis with incredible kindness brings out the best in horse and rider; it works regardless of whether the rider’s goal is high level eventing competition or more focused on improved performance in the back yard!” – Lisa Kirschner

Kimberley applies years of knowledge “from the field” to teach all ages and abilities at various facilities across Northern/Eastern Utah. She is also an avid competitor and campaigns her own mare at the Preliminary level in Eventing.

Rachel has had an infatuation with horses since she could talk! She took her first lesson at five years old, after which she then spent each summer at horse shows and each winter fox hunting with her pony. Rachel became an dedicated member of The United States Pony Club and then went on to train with several CCI5* level professionals during summer camps as a young equestrian. Rachel continued her career receiving a B.S. of Animal Science at North Carolina State University, during which time she worked and taught at a large eventing barn in the area and gained valuable experience working primarily with OTTBs. Rachel’s passion for learning continues today: Rachel is always excited to expand her own knowledge base with any opportunity, while she simultaneously teaches students intelligent and highly interactive lessons that focus on building a strong partnership between horse and rider.
Sara attended her first Cowboy Camp at 10 years old, and it was true love! Once teamed up with Kimberley and 3 Peas in a Pony in 2008, Sara has turned her own ex-rodeo horse, Dime, into a steady schoolmaster through the Novice Level. Sara is now riding at the Training Level and has aspirations to compete at the upper levels over the next few years. In 2012, Sara served as a Working Student under the tutelage of Adrianna Silvestri and Agapito de la Cruz at A&A Equestrian in Santa Ynez, CA. During this time, Sara expanded her horse education to include a comprehensive and practical understanding of the care of the equine athlete. With 3 Peas in a Pony, Saraʼs determination and dedication have moved her quickly on to the teaching track and as of 2016, she is officially a Level I Training ICP Instructor with the U.S. Eventing Association’s Instructor Certification Program.
Cara is a lifelong equestrian. Among her many accolades, Cara has competed through the CCI* level in Eventing, twice representing Area IX at North American Young Rider Championships; as well as being crowned First Level Dressage World Champion at the Morgan Horse Grand Nationals.
