Kim Boyer, a dressage rider and breeder of Pure Spanish Horses, owns and operates Hampton Green Farm (HGF) in Wellington, Florida, and Fruitport, Michigan. HGF is dedicated to the development of the Pure Spanish Horse (PRE – Pura Raza Espanola) for dressage in America. Kim, a mother of four boys, started her involvement with horses when her oldest son, Michael Molinara, became an avid polo player as a youngster. She purchased family horses in Michigan and boarded them, and then in 1997 built her own barn. By 1998, Kim was focused on dressage and made trips to Florida, Germany, Holland, and Spain to buy horses. In 1999, Kim purchased a polo facility in Wellington, renovated it, and in 2000 established HGF there. By 2002, Kim was exclusively importing Spanish horses and promoting the Spanish horse as a dressage horse in America. Her 200-acre Michigan facility is home for her breeding stock and the Wellington facility showcases her stallions during the winter show season. All her stallions and broodmares have been imported from Spain and are descendants of national champion s. HGF foals have earned many significant awards and achievements. Kim sponsors topnotch riders and her horses compete in national and international FEI arenas, winning titles at prestigious shows. Kim served on the Advisory Board for the Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse. In 2005, she addressed the World Congress of Breeders of the P.R.E. in Seville, Spain. Currently, Kim is President of the United States P.R.E. Association, serves on its Board of Directors, and is a member of its Management Committee. She holds a PhD in Philosophy in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Kim is married to Frédéric Boyer and they divide their time between Fruitport and Wellington.
“For a dressage enthusiast, it’s a very exciting time to be asked to serve on the USET Foundation Board,” Mrs. Boyer said. “Both nationally and internationally the dressage world is changing dramatically. Especially for Americans, the sport of dressage is taking on a new face – and it’s a very unique American one. There is significant desire on the part of top riders to have more access to our coaching staff, more training for young riders, and more high performance programs, so it’s a great time to get involved with the USET Foundation to promote those programs and raise funds for those programs.”
