Kellie Perfetto is the founder of Starlight Farms and the resident instructor and trainer. She has been riding since the age of 6.

Kellie competed in Three Day Eventing, a sport that utilizes various horsemanship skills - dressage, cross country jumping, and stadium jumping.

She found her true love of dressage and the ability of dressage to transform the most ordinary horse into something extraordinary.

Kellie has trained and continues to train with many wonderful and talented trainers, including Gina Duran and Laurie Moore-Smith, and is very happy to be currently working as an assistant to Laurie Moore-Smith.

Kellie was very fortunate in having an amazing start to her riding career with her first instructor, Connie Drag. Kellie has attended clinics with J. Michael Plumb, James Wofford, Tracy Lert and many others. Kellie believes in continuing to improve her skills and education through regular training and clinics.

It has always been Kellie's dream to work with children and adults and share with them the incredible gift of life with horses.

Kellie focuses on positive teaching for both horse and rider and emphasizes safety and proper form as well as teaches horsemanship and care of the horse.

 

Kellie and her beloved pony, Star Cruiser.

 

Cruiser "Then" This was Cruiser when we first got him. He had no real topline and no real muscle.

 

This is Cruiser after training in dressage. He has built up a nice topline and has developed his hindquarters and neck much more.
