Kelley Robinson

 Kelley’s passion for horses developed at an early age. Like many young girls, her competitive career began in the pony ring and progressed to the children and junior hunters.  Eventually her foray into the jumper ring began under the guidance of Jill Henselwood of Juniper Farms. While riding at Juniper Farms, Kelley excelled in the junior jumpers with her mare Esprit de Lys and the Equitation division with 007.   The highlight of her junior career was the opportunity to represent Canada at the North American Young Riders competition aboard  Esprit de Lys.

After the conclusion of her junior career, Kelley took a professional path with the goal of opening her own stable.  That dream became a reality in 2009 when she and her husband David opened Cimarron Show Stables.  While Kelley handles the riding and coaching duties, David oversees the day to day operations to ensure the farm runs smoothly.  

And, as they have from the very beginning, Kelley's parents Doug and Lorraine Small continue to encourage and support Kelley in every aspect of the business.


Kelley's Horses

Esprit de Lys


One cannot introduce Kelley’s present mounts without a nod to the past.  Kelley’s outstanding junior jumper mare Esprit de Lys, left behind a strong legacy at Cimmaron Show Stables. Her success in the ring was surpassed by her remarkable achievements as a broodmare.  Esprit de Lys stamped her progeny with her feisty nature and extreme athleticism.  Two of her most exceptional offspring, Blue's Yer Daddy and Lise, were born and raised at Cimmaron Show Stables.

Blue’s Yer Daddy is a big, impressive twelve year old gelding by the Dutch Warmblood stallion Mr. Blue.  His confident character is right in step with the incredible scope he inherited from both sides of his pedigree.  Kelley has worked very hard to develop Blue’s natural ability and channel his incredible power to achieve success in the Grand Prix arena.

Highlights of their career include:

Winner of the $25,000 WEC GP 2020

 4th place in the $72,000 Groupby GP at Angelstone 2019

 8th place in the $36,100 Open Welcome at Angelstone 2019

 10th place in the $72,000 Ian Millar Legacy GP at Angelstone 2019

Lise ( ? )

Not to be outdone by her big brother, Kelley’s second mount Lise (or “Miss Piggy” as she is affectionately known in the barn) is an eight year old mare by the talented stallion Clinton.  Barely 16 hands, what she lacks in height she more than makes up for in spirit.  Lise was blessed with light, careful scope and an innate affinity for speed.  A combination that makes her a threat every time she steps in the ring.  Kelley has carefully managed Lise’s development to create a confident equine athlete with a refreshing enthusiasm for her job.

 Highlights of their career include:

3rd place in the $25,000 WEC GP 2020
Winner of the $10,000 Modified GP at Angelstone 2019

 Winner of the 7 Year Old Young Horse Finals at Angelstone  2018

 Winner of the 6 Year Old Young Horse Finals at Angelstone  2017
