Sponsored Trainer Highlight: Kymberly Pullen
Kymberly "Kymmy" Pullen is from Sugar Land, Texas where she began riding Hunter/Jumpers at the age of 11. In high school, she taught beginner lessons at Southern Breeze Equestrian Center while competing her two OTTB’s in the Hunters. She then attended Texas A&M where she obtained a degree in Business and Animal Science. Kymmy has always had lofty goals, so it was an obvious move to the east coast to get her foot in the door of the sporthorse industry.
Shortly after moving to Chester County, PA (the most Olympic Equestrian dense county in the USA), she became Silva Martin’s assistant where for four years she gained invaluable knowledge on running a business and training horses. In 2014, she started her own business, "Kymberly Rhea Dressage", which was focused on training young horses up the levels and helping adult amateurs reach their goals with their own horses. A few years later, Kymmy stumbled upon her passion for horse sales and realized this is where she wanted to direct her focus while also continuing to develop her self-made International Grand Prix horse, Hot Date and five-year-old Mojito. After 11 years in Pennsylvania, Kymmy has moved to New Jersey to join the Lauren Chumley Dressage team to help with the sales empire expansion!
Kymmy rides in the Capri, Lexington, and Orlando (Kymmy: "I love the fun laces!") models.
What does Kymmy love about TDR/Kingsley?
"I love how easy they are to break in and how customized you can make them! I am a huge matchy addict, so I love that I can have boots match what I’m wearing! Also, the customer service is incredible! Having a company be willing to work with you is what sets them apart from others."
Kymmy is currently am getting ready for US Dressage Finals with both Hot Date and Mojito, and is solidifying everything the best she can before they leave. After that, she will start getting Mojito ready for FEI 6 year olds and then will be spending the winter season in Florida (still working for Lauren Chumley).
