Scottish born Kenzie fell in love with horses on her family farm in Kelso in Scotland As a teen Kenzie took that love for horses a step further when working for Stable Life, using horses to help heal people affected by emotional or physical trauma. The call of the thoroughbred brought her to Australia, where she gained experience educating young horses, before joining Lindsay Park under the expert care of Champion trainer David Hayes. Kenzie joined Leneva Park in 2020 and is an integral part of our team, guiding day to day operations alongside Sarah on our Longwood property.​​​
