Golden Isles Riding Academy, under the ownership and direction of Kelli Jordan, is celebrating their one year anniversary and is proud to say that business is booming. Kelli began her riding career at Sea Island Stables under the guidance of Marvin and Amy Long and then furthered her skills with Ruth Gimpel Stables. Ruth is my mentor and taught me that hard work pays off and I am applying the many skills she taught me to my business and to my many new students. While most of my students are new to riding we are enjoying the Academy Divisions and have attended many shows. It has been a very busy summer at the barn with a record eight summer camp sessions and I have enjoyed teaching new riders about the American Saddlebred. I am grateful to all my students and their families for the support they have given me and am looking forward to banner years ahead.
