Happy Monday everyone! Hopefully everyone had a wonderful weekend :) Time to meet another member of the KLM team! This week we are meeting one of our sponsored riders, Ivie Cullen-Dean, (@cullendean.equestrian). Ivie is such a sweetheart and dominates in three day eventing! Learn more about Ivie below.
Where are you from: I am from Newnan, GA.
What’s your favorite show to compete at: My favorite show to compete at is Red Hills International Horse Trials.
Tell us about your horses and what division you show them in: My horse, Blue or Fernhill Five Star. He is a 5 year old Irish Sport Horse and I have had him for a little over a year. He currently runs prelim/1* eventing, second level dressage and we are hoping to do our first third level debut at the end of May, along with the 1.15 jumpers. He is full of personality and I couldn’t be luckier to own such an incredible athlete.
How did you learn about KLM Equestrian: I learned about KLM through instagram, and as soon as i saw this business I knew i wanted to be apart of it and help it grow!
Favorite KLM product: My favorite products are the half pads. Blue is most comfortable with his KLM half pad on because of all the cushioning it allows him to have but also forms to him.
Who is your riding inspiration: My riding inspiration is my trainer Julie Richards, and Phillip Dutton. without these two people I have no idea where my riding ‘career’ would be.
What is your favorite eventing phase and why: My favorite phase is dressage! crazy, i know! I feel like it is the most important and fundamental to know your horse, and for competitions!
