Kim & Caroline Perlman - Riding Instructors & Consulting

Kim & Caroline will be on staff with Shallowbrook for the warm weather months of the season teaching lessons & training horses! 

After a successful junior career that included top five finishes at Maclay and USET finals, Kim opened Wedgewood Farm in Bedford, New York with his brother David.  There they trained Alice Debany to a top 10 finish at Maclay finals, and Kim competed in the jumpers up to the Grand Prix level. He also worked for Anne Kursinski, helping her find Cannonball, her mount for the 1988 Olympics.

Kim has run his facility, Riverstone Equine, for over 20 years, training juniors from their first rides on ponies to qualifying for equitation finals, coaching adult riders to success in the hunters and jumpers, bringing young horses along, and managing the maintenance of client horses so they can have long, successful careers. He has also managed and run horse shows, designed courses and given clinics.

After riding as a child, a successful career on Wall Street, a successful career as an amateur hunter and jumper rider and a stint helping to manage the barn, Caroline turned professional in 2014.  She has a unique understanding of the brain of the amateur rider, which adds an important dimension for adult riders.  She is also an expert at figuring out what horses need to perform at the highest level.
