Kent Farrington started riding aged eight at the carriage stable in downtown Chicago. He found an old photo of his mother riding a horse, and said to her that he wanted to try it himself.

He turned professional in 1999 when he accepted a job with four-time British Olympian Tim Grubb. In January 2001, Kent took a position at Fairfield County Hunt Club, where he worked alongside two-time US Olympian Leslie Burr Howard. 

Among his best performances are twice winning the US Open CSIO5*, the King George Cup, Pan American Gold, American Invitational, Presidents Cup, Devon Grand Prix, Hampton Classic and twice winning the East Coast World Cup League.

Kent describes the Global Champions Tour as a first-class horse show.
