My name is Kelly Curry, I am a full time mother, business owner, barrel racer, horse trainer and part time model with C.M Modeling. I have 3 beautiful children and am married to the love of my life. I have been riding horses since I was a little girl which led to the start of my barrel racing career at age 11. Barrel racing has been my passion in life. I am a hardworking, dedicated, passionate, driven individual that believes that everyone should be given a chance to chase their dreams, and in order to make dreams come true, everyone needs a strong support team. In 2006, I joined High School rodeo which launched my barrel racing career into full swing and now is my lifelong career!
I proudly own and operate my own business which is a fully functioning equine training, breeding, boarding and conditioning facility that is constantly growing.
*In 2016 I had my first crop of performance horse prospects by our stallion CATS HILLBILLY BUCK.
* In 2017 I was name National Horse Training of the Year
*In 2018 I recorded and released my equine training videos
* In 2019, I introduced my equine exercise, condition and interval training program by addition the Q-line Equine Exercise by Vitafloor exclusively here at K Bar C Ranch. We have the only Q-line walker in the state of Kentucky.
I thank God everyday for my many blessing, my farm and my family and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!
*In 2020, we changed our brand. We are now K Bar C Ranch home to K Bar C Performance Horses and K Bar C Arena.
*In 2021, we have expanded our boarding options and facility and have many more things to come about this year!

"Being a champion isn't buying the most expensive horse, having the most expensive barn, trailer or tack. Being a champion isn't winning a class or a buckle. Being a champion isn't always glory and great times.
Being a champion is love, passion, hard work and dedication. It's tears and screaming, it is not always easy. It's working no matter what conditions you have to do it in. It is late nights and early mornings, it's horses before yourself, before your friends, often before your family. It's sore bodies, bruises and cuts. It's vet bills and last dimes to make sure they have all they need. It's crying in their mane when you've had a bad day. It's smiling when they finally get that thing you've been trying to teach them for a month. It's having the best network of people to care for them and to support you. it's farriers, vets, dentists, chiropractors, feed store owners, husband's wives, family, friends and even enemies. It's learning how to take the good with the bad and never knowing what each day may bring. it's happy and the sad. It's high and lows. It's wanting to give up but never doing so. Most of all, it's all the love that you feel every time you see those eyes and hear that nicker. Being a champion really has little to do with victories in the show pen as it does with victories on every road to get to that show. Being a champion is living for what you love and loving what you do and who you do it with and NEVER giving up. The victories are many and the ribbons and the buckles are icing on the cake so to say.
Being a champion is so much more than just winning...and once you can learn that, you too will be a champion."
