Kenridge Farms Staff
A lifelong Kentuckian, Carolyn. Kenton began riding at age four on a horse her grandmother purchased for her and her cousins. School, marriage and children took up her middle years but she returned to horseback riding in the early 1990s and established Kenridge Farm in Paris in 1999 in order to better enjoy the pleasures of Kentucky’s signature product.
Her marriage to Bill “Boom Boom” Kenton (Kentucky House Speaker William G.Kenton, Jr. who died in 1981) brought to her and her children, William G. Kenton III and Martha E. Kenton, the ownership of the historic Kenton farm in Robertson County, now called Kenridge Farm East.
Carolyn purchased her first gaited horse in 1994, a mare, Sunshine, which she still owns. Her registered Rocky Mountain Horse Association stallion, Rocky Dock, has sired many of the horses on her farm. These are the horses she uses in her guided trail rides. After successfully showing her flat shod Tennessee Walking Horses and her Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain Saddle horses, including World Grand Champion, KRF Hollywood Star, she now spends most of her riding time on the beautiful trails of Kentucky.
Carolyn has been active in Kentucky’s recreational horse community for over twenty years. She has at one time or another been active in the Kentucky Horse Council, KEEP, the various breed associations of her horses, parade participation and mounted search and rescue events.
A practicing attorney with Bluegrass Elderlaw, PLLC in Lexington, Kentucky, Carolyn spends her professional life practicing in the areas of wealth preservation and transfer, Medicaid and veteran’s benefit planning and guardianships.
Carolyn’s greatest wish for her horses and farm is to share the joys of a horse relationship with her grandchildren and everyone else who is interested. She and her children have a continuing interest in developing Kenridge Farm East into a diverse working farm and recreational destination.
