Kevin McGinn arrived in Los Angeles in 1990, and has had a thriving training and showing business ever since. He has spent much time in Europe learning from top German riders and importing many successful horses to America - most notably Stonebridge Alias, Levantos and Kasper, one of the winningest large pony hunters of the last decade. Kevin is pleased to be back training where his West Coast career began, at the "center" of riding: the Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Kevin is a sought after clinician who produces clinics in Southern California and many other locations around the United States. He is a contributing writer whose equestrian articles have appeared in The California Horse Trader, California Riding, and Bay Area Equestrian Online. He also has hosted Facebook's wildly popular Trivia Night/Q+A on the Judge My Ride page, reaching as many as one million readers per month. Kevin also has been a guest commentator on the live webcast Showjumping Unplugged TV covering "A" circuit Grand Prix competition from venues such as HITS Thermal, Blenheim Equisports, and The Los Angeles Equestrian Center.
Kevin is very proud to be working on the pilot of a new series of riding rallies that was conceived by Atlanta Olympic Course designer Linda Allen. The Benchmark Program brings the highest standards of riding in a one-day format at a cost that allows horse trainers and breeders to acquire show ring mileage for new horses or riders, at a fraction of the price of a rated horse show. The Benchmark Program has garnered national interest and has been featured in articles in California Show Biz, The Equestrian News, and The Chronicle of the Horse.
Kevin's first love is teaching and traveling to clinics, and has built a substantial roster of hosts in cities all over the United States and Canada. He welcomes riders of all levels when in Los Angeles, at Hansen Dam Equestrian Park, or he can come to your farm or facility in the Los Angeles Metro Area. Special-Day and Half-Day rates (plus milage rates) apply.
