My name is Kelly Pugh. I am 22 years old and currently competing at the three star level. I started riding at the age of seven when I completed my first novice event and I have not missed a season since then. I have grown up under the watchful eye of Dayna Lynd Pugh. I spent the last year and a half working and competing with some of the best in the country including Allison Springer, Phillip Dutton, Katie Prudent and Mark Phillips. I was named to the 2009 Developing Riders List, 2010 Developing riders list and 2011 developing riders list. My current top mount Copycat Chloe is a USA bred TB/TK mare that I started and brought through the levels myself with of course the help of my wonderful team. Together we won individual Gold at the NAJYRC CCI ** competition and team silver. We went on to win the Markham Trophy at Fair Hill CCI *** being the highest placed young rider. Although Chloe and I have distinguished ourselves at the Advanced level I have taken many other horses up through the levels Including For Kicks who I won my first FEI event on and went on to be quit competitive at the two star level. George Jacob who also brought much success at the two star level and now Chloe who has exceeded everyones expectations with her talent. I have been very lucky to get the opportunity to sit on such wonderful horses but I am now at a point in my career where I need to find someone who as Denny Emerson puts it, "wants to go on this magic carpet ride with me." Although this sport may not seem like a team sport it definitely is. It takes a team of people to get a horse to the upper levels and I am looking to create that team. Someone who loves eventing and wants to go on this so called magic carpet ride!

I have found a horse I truly believe is a team horse. It has showed it has plenty of talent by having top placings at the advanced level at shows such as The Fork and Southern Pines. The horse is nine years old and ready to do a three star. This horse consistently wins the dressage, show jumps clean and runs cross country like a pro.
