Ken Adkins Quarter Horses is located on 85 acres in Southern West Virginia. The farm sits on the top of Wingrove Hill in the small community of Scarbro. Ken and Kelly moved to the farm in 1992 with all the hopes and dreams that a couple of newlyweds could imagine. Shortly after the move they had the opportunity to build what had been a lifelong dream, an equine facility where they could enjoy their horses and better prepare them for the weekend shows that they had come to enjoy. Both in the education field they loved working with others of all ages at just about anything.
In 1995 the opportunity presented itself and Ken began fulfilling his personal dream of training horses. It was the perfect fit, still teaching, both horses and people, it was the dream job. Since then Ken has worked with many types of horses. Quarter Horses though had always been the favorite and that was the beginning of the great combination. A teacher teaching, horse and rider, to not only ride but to enjoy the experience.
The awards are nice and the enjoyment that comes with success is great, but once a teacher always a teacher and if you see Ken at a show or visit him at the farm you'll see him doing the two things that bring him the greatest professional satisfaction; teaching horses and working with people.
