FEI dressage trainer and international competitor through Grand Prix, Kim Gentry lives and trains in the Memphis, Tennessee, area. She continues to teach, hold clinics, and compete, juggling a busy travel schedule that includes plenty of time on the road with her horses.
Kim has always taken a keen interest in horsemanship — not just riding, but care and nutrition, farrier care and all-around horsemanship. Preventing as many issues as possible through appropriate feeding management is key, which is why she keeps her horses on SUCCEED.
Kim Gentry’s Dressage Achievements
A self-described “British pony clubber through and through,” Kim gained diverse experience as a young rider retraining off-the-track thoroughbreds, riding in amateur flat races and training polo ponies for the King of Malaysia. In 1979, she scored an invitation to spend the summer outside of London working with a Grand Prix trainer—who quickly noted Kim’s natural talent for dressage and encouraged her to continue on that path.
After taking time off for school and to build up her finances (working as a marketing executive), Kim made the leap into a full time equestrian career in 2003.
Kim’s dressage achievements include:
- Australian Equestrian High Performance Squad 2015-2020 Olympics and WEG
- Australian Equestrian Team member, FEI Nations Cup 2015 & 2016
- USDF Certified Instructor – Training through Fourth Levels
- CLS 5* Rated Dressage Trainer
- “L” Judge Training Program Graduate with Distinction
- USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medalist
- 2007 Major Lindgren Scholarship recipient
- 2004 USDF / Dressage Foundation Certified Instructor scholarship recipient
