 Kevin McGinn - Jumpers, hunters, equitation, training, sales  
“In training horses and riders, the fastest way IS the slow way; there are no shortcuts in real education.” — George Morris

Kevin McGinn is happy to say that he's back at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center assisting Ginny Planke in training at Ever Wood Stables in Burbank, California.

Kevin and Ginny, both native to Long Island, New York, have known and ridden together since the late 1970s, when they trained under the late Robert Hoskins as junior riders. Their varied career experiences, combined with similar core training techniques emphasizing command of the basics of riding, make for a comprehensive and successful program for children, juniors, and adult riders.

Kevin and Ginny's combined success can bring out your best in any ring, whether your interest is equitation, hunters, jumpers, or ponies. Amelia CB Goldman adds her riding skill and compatible size to train along with Ginny's program, producing some of the finest ponies in the nation.

Kevin balances training at home with time spent showing on the road (see Kevin's show schedule).

He believes the strong emphasis on basic skills developed at home must be strengthened through the pressure of the show ring environment. Kevin's students compete on both the "A" and "B" circuits, as he feels smaller shows are great confidence builders while large shows stretch riders to rise to a higher standard.

Kevin's many trips to Europe have enabled him to complement classic dressage techniques with the European method of show jumping.

In addition to providing full training services for horses and lessons for riders, he is available for judging and clinics, day coaching at shows, and accepts approved horses for consignment sale.

Kevin's mentors include such notables as Linda Allen, Joe Fargis, and Susan Hutchison.
