Kevin Winkel - rider/trainer

Kevin Winkel, Julie's son, is a lifelong horseman and talented rider who has made a name for himself in the show jumping ranks.

With multiple Grand Prix wins on Maplewood's stallions Cartouche Z and Osilvis in the mid-2000s, Kevin is now taking their offspring to the highest levels. Most recently, he has earned Grand Prix victories aboard Osophia (by Osilvis) throughout the West Coast circuit during the 2015-16 show seasons.

Kevin grew up riding and training at Maplewood before branching out to expand his knowledge and experience. He spent two years in Virginia based on the East Coast working for Olympian Joe Fargis, as well as a year on the West Coast working for Grand Prix rider Rusty Stewart. 

He currently oversees, trains and shows a string of successful jumpers at a variety of levels, from those in the Young Jumper Futurities to the Grand Prix.
