His Junior Jumper Soul Searcher won many year end awards in both Junior and Open Jumper divisions. At the close of a successful junior career, he moved on to Miami where he rode professionally and managed a facility known for their many famous ponies. Mr. Madcap and Farnley Cloche both had great success under his tutelage. In addition to his hunter / jumper career, he also has dabbled in the race horse industry!!! Kevin bred and raised many competitive racehorses horses at his farm in Ocala. One of them, Star Gallant, was the winner of the Illinois Derby, Fountain of Youth Stakes race, and also placed in the Kentucky Derby!!
Mary was born and raised in Illinois, and grew up with a great love of horses. Her family rode and hunted together, and Mary had a very storied junior career in the Hunter and Equitation rings with her mare Maid of Honor. She started teaching and riding horses professionally when she moved to Florida after high school where she then met Kevin, and the rest is history :) !!!
Mary and Kevin started Ravenwood Farm in 1980. Kevin bred and raised Heartstrings, who after being sold to Don Stewart, was Green Conformation Champion of the country. Don purchased another of Mary & Kevin's horse; Case in Point and took him to Champion of the country in the 2nd year Green division. Kevin and Mary also owned the famous Enticement and campaigned her to Champion of the country in the 1st year Green division, and overall Green Working Champion in 1993.
Since then, they purchased the farm and continue their winning ways with their clients!
