Practical Horseman - - Cross Country -

Orig­i­nally from Tampa, Florida, Keri Kampsen rode with Christina Sch­luse­meyer and Bob Braswell at Quiet Hill Farm as a Ju­nior. She won mul­ti­ple rib­bons in the ma­jor equi­tation fi­nals, in­clud­ing a first in the 1997 ASPCA Ma­clay Fi­nal, sec­ond in the 1998 North Amer­i­can Equi­tation Cham­pi­onships, fourth in the 1998 AHSA Medal Fi­nal and sixth in the WIHS Equi­tation Clas­sic. She also rode Mon­ti­cello to the 1996 Large Ju­nior Hunter and Over­all Ju­nior Hunter Horse of the Year ti­tles. Since then, she has won mul­ti­ple cham­pi­onships and horse of the year ti­tles in the hunter di­vi­sions as well as rib­bons in the grand prix ring.

Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from New York Uni­ver­sity with a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in eco­nomics, Keri took a pri­vate train­ing job work­ing for a fam­ily in Cal­i­for­nia be­fore start­ing her own busi­ness in Los An­ge­les. She later re­turned to the East Coast and re­opened her fam­ily’s busi­ness, Two Goals Farm, named for its two eques­trian goals: jump­ing and polo (her fa­ther played polo and her brother, Kris Kampsen, is a pro­fes­sional polo player).

Now based in Welling­ton, Florida, Keri and her busi­ness part­ner, Lexy Reed, spe­cial­ize in the train­ing and sales of hunters, jumpers and equi­tation horses. Keri also teaches rid­ers of all lev­els. Her clients earned nu­mer­ous top rib­bons dur­ing the 2017 and 2018 Win­ter Eques­trian Fes­ti­val sea­sons.

Since re­ceiv­ing her U.S. Eques­trian Fed­er­a­tion “R” judg­ing li­cense in hunters and equi­tation in 2013, she has of­fi­ci­ated at many com­pe­ti­tions.
