Kendal Lehari

Kendal is a professional equestrian with an honours degree in Biological Science at the University of Guelph. Her home base is at Reindalyne Farm in Uxbridge, ON. She helps run the farm with her mother Gwen. During the winter she travels to Ocala, FL for 3 months to train and compete. This is the heart of horse country and a great place to campaign to stay at the top of the sport. While Kendal’s main focus is Eventing, she also competes in Show Jumping and Dressage. She believes that to be the best in your sport, you have to cross train to get comfortable in the different rings and atmospheres. Kendal has competed at the CCI**** level in Eventing, 1.35m jumpers and Fourth level dressage.
