Welcome to Paradise Farms Equestrian!
Paradise Farms is owned and operated by George and Kim Dixon and is located in Carbondale, Colorado just 35 miles outside of Aspen and 15 miles from Glenwood Springs. Kim heads up the program focusing on hunter, jumper and equitation training as well
as showing and sales. We offer lessons to riders of all skill levels, beginner to advanced. We believe that
making the basics of riding a priority from the start is essential and must not be overlooked - creating a solid
foundation is key.
Kim has achieved success in both the hunter and jumper rings. In 2009 Kim & Calvin K were USEF Champion and Horse of the Year in the Regular Working Hunter Division in Zone 8, they were Reserve Champion in the AHJF Professional Rider Challenge series earning them an invitation to Capital Challenge to compete in the Professional Rider Challenge Class and they also qualified for the $100,000 Hunter Derby invitational. In 2010 Kim and Calvin finished third in their zone in the regular working hunter division and again were invited to compete in the WCHR finals at Capital Challenge. Most recently Kim and her jumper Carus Z received the USEF Championship ribbon for the 1.30m and over division and also sat at the top of the list for money won in the LEG Mini Prix series qualifying them for additional prize money at the finals at the L.A. National. Kim moved Carus Z up a division to the 1.40m last summer and won many top ribbons as they settled into the bigger jumps.
Paradise Farms spends 10 - 14 weeks per year horseshowing and hosts several clinics per year with some of the top
horseman in the country - some of whom have represented the United States at the highest levels of competition such
as the Olympics, World Cup and European Tours. See show schedule for a list of shows and clinics
