Cindi Carlson owns and operates K.A. Farms of Gilroy, CA with her 3 dogs, (Merlin, Taffy and Hipo) and 2 cats (Buttons and Tazzy) Cindi offers boarding, lessons and breeds National and International champion Arabian horses.  

Her journey with horses began with lessons at a private boarding school, spending hours at the barn learning how to ride and care for horses. This lead to eventually purchasing her first horse  and enjoying spending many hours trail riding. She branched out to owning and showing Arabian horses, both under saddle and in-hand, and has bred, trained and shown multiple A class, and National Champions. 

While running large boarding stables in Los Altos Hills, Woodside and Saratoga Cindi actively developed and ran Horsemanship programs for the local colleges such as San Jose State and DeAnza College. While in Saratoga Cindi also owned and operated a boarding, a rental stable, a large lesson program and day camps. 

Cindi moved to Gilroy from Saratoga in 1997, building her new stable from scratch. She  and her boarders relocated from Saratoga and have been enjoying the Gilroy area ever since.

Cindi currently holds judging cards in 7 different associations including AMHA and USEF Arabian. She has been judging for over 20 years and judges both nationally and internationally including World and International Championship shows
