The People Behind the Operation of Rock-n-Oaks

Kelli Kensing

Kelli is the owner/manager of Rock-N-Oaks Stables, LLC.

Her passion has always been science and horses. After obtaining a BS in biology, she became a research scientist and later a secondary teacher. Now, she applies her passions to horse management, with the goal of attaining and maintaining the peak physical and emotional health of the horses at her facility. Kelli's research of standards and changes within the equine industry, pertaining to horse nutritional requirements, disease causes, symptoms and prevention, pest effects and management, optimal environments for horse mental and physical health, and other areas, provides current insights that are applied to each horse on an individual basis. Kelli enjoys changing a horse that is poor, stressed, or unhealthy into one that is fit, healthy, and content.
