Kelly Lowry

(Stable and Operations Manager): Kelly has loved horses ever since she can recall and made an effort to be around them as much as she could growing up. More than riding horses, Kelly was drawn to taking care of horses and after several years of being the Equine Operations Manager at Agriventures Agway, she decided to follow her passions further by working hands on with the horses. We are lucky to have her passion and dedication to our horses and riders here at Sea Horse Stables where she has been Stable and Operations Manager since August 2011. Kelly studied Graphic Design and Social Work at Central Connecticut College. Kelly is always happy to help answer questions, lend a hand and is our walking reference diary for nutrition and horse health. Kelly's attention to detail, amazing work ethic and genuine love of horses makes her an outstanding stable manager.
