Kent Farrington started riding at the carriage stable in downtown Chicago. The most memorable moment in his career was winning his first CSI5*. Although his father didn’t have anything to do with horses, he greatly influenced Kent especially in terms of making decisions and pushing himself. Asked about his philosophy, Kent says show jumping is about perseverance so it is important to focus on the things you can control, not on the things you can’t control. Madison, Up Chiqui, Uceko and Voyeur are the best horses in his career. 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.
