Kent Farrington, currently ranked one of the top three riders in the FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale) World Rankings, turned professional in the sport of show jumping in 1999 when he began working with four-time British Olympian Tim Grubb, and a few years later with two-time US Olympian Leslie Howard. Farrington’s transition from junior to professional was seamless; in his first three years as a professional he earned over $1 million in prize money and received the Maxine Beard Award – presented to an individual American rider that best displays true potential to represent the U.S. on the international stage.
Kent’s first major grand prix win was at Saugerties in 2004 with Madison. Some of his most notable accomplishments include over twenty five Grand Prix wins with Up Chiqui; winning team gold at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara; the King George V Gold Cup at CSIO Hickstead on Uceko; the Credit Suisse Grand Prix with Willow in Geneva; the Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Spruce Meadows with and team bronze in Caen for the World Equestrian Games with Voyeur, a 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding. Kent looks forward to another great season with his horses, partners, and sponsors.
Brian Walker is regarded as one of the best young talents and upcoming horseman in the industry. Brian, a dual Canadian and American citizen, has trained with, ridden for, and worked alongside the best in the world over the last 25 years. His structured training programs, steady professionalism, knowledge and work ethic consistently set him apart from the competition.
Charlise Casas is well regarded as an up-and-coming junior rider in the show jumping arena. Under the instruction of Kent Farrington and Brian Walker, she has earned numerous high ribbons in Junior Jumper divisions at competitive international shows including the Winter Equestrian Festival, Split Rock Jumping Tour, Tryon and Spruce Meadows.
A full-house of enthusiastic visitors witnessed the USA’s Kent Farrington claim the biggest spoils of the week in the Grand Prix for the Kingdom of Bahrain Trophy. Despite a valiant challenge by Britain’s John Whitaker (Argento), who thrilled the home crowd, the American visitor took the win with the super speedy Creedance. “Creedance is a naturally fast horse and was flying out there…,” said Kent. “I’ve taken two big wins this week so I think I should get out of town quick!”
The Royal Windsor Horse Show is the UK’s largest outdoor show with international competitions in three different equestrian disciplines. At right, Kent with the Queen of England and King of Bahrain after winning the King’s Cup.
Charlise Casas rode Carana to finish 5 out of 38 horses in the Medium Classic Junior Jumper at the Kentucky Spring Horse Show.

Kent Farrington piloted the talented Gazelle to a second FEI victory at Tryon International Equestrian Center, as the pair finished atop the leaderboard in the $130,000 Asheville Regional Airport Grand Prix CSI 3* in front of a large crowd of spectators. Farrington and Gazelle demonstrated their efficiency, finishing the short course in 37.367 seconds.
Farrington and Gazelle, who also took top honors in the $35,000 FEI 1.50m Suncast® Welcome, found their rhythm early in the first round, tackling the track seamlessly. Farrington stated earlier in the week that the 2006 Belgian Warmblood mare is quickly learning the ropes of the larger classes. “She’s jumped under the lights a few times and I try to take a lot of my horses and get them experience early on so that they’re used to crowds and larger atmospheres,” said Farrington. “I’m fortunate to have a great team of supporters behind me so that I can go to some of the best shows in the world.”

Following the victory, in an interview with Noelle Floyd, a leading show jumping news source, Farrington said, “I try to really manage [Uceko’s] schedule so that he shows at only the places he likes. He loves grass rings and big jumps, so I just try to pick those Grand Prixs. He’s really a special horse and I feel lucky to have him in my stable. A special thank you to the owners, RCG Farm, and all of my supporters really. I have a great team of people behind me in my career, and that’s why we’re here today.”
