Kindra Warner spent a lot of her childhood on her family’s farm in Virginia where her grandmother taught her to ride and care for horses. She spent many summers trail riding, showing and fox hunting. In 2003 Kindra decided to make a career out of her passion by attending Meredith Manor International Equestrian Center. While there, she earned certifications in Riding Instruction, Horse Training, Barn Management, Equine Massage Therapy and Breeding. After graduating in 2005 Kindra gained work experience in Dressage, Eventing and eventually Hunter Jumpers. Over the last 12 years she has trained and coached Hunter Jumper riders for IEA, Local and USEF shows. Kindra joined the Little Raven Ranch team in December 2017 where her training business, Virado Equestrian, was founded. She works with riders of all levels who own, lease or ride lesson horses. Virado riders attend several shows during the year and enjoy a well rounded jumping education with an emphasis on classical flatwork. Kindra's goal as a trainer is to develop the rider's thorough education at a rapid rate while increasing confidence, developing achievable goals and providing an environment of support and friendships.
About the Team Manager.
Virado Equestrian is extremely fortunate to have Stacie Lynch as our personal Team Manager! She has devoted herself to the team full-time and has become a familiar face around the barn and the Colorado horse community. Stacie and her two daughters, Macie and Merin, have been a long time clients of Kindra's since 2013. They currently have two horses, Siggy and Beau, who are currently boarded with us at Little Raven Ranch. Stacie encompasses all the organizational skills any trainer could ever want in a manager. She takes care of coordinating everything from show entries, vet appointments, medical treatments, correspondence to daily horse prep/grooming for Kindra. She is a lovely, kind and energetic woman providing our team with consistent guidance and communication, all while being an outstanding role model.
