Kim Herslow, a USDF Gold medalist, has been riding since she was nine-years-old and competed extensively in the hunter/jumper arenas before dressage became her main focus. A graduate from Delaware Valley College with a degree in Equine Science, Herslow continued her education by training with noted professionals, such as Lars Petersen, Robert Dover, Guenter Seidel, Debbie McDonald, Scott Hassler, and Anne Gribbons. Her ability to spot raw talent is clearly evident with her mount Rosmarin, aka “Reno” (Rosentanz/Weltmeyer), whom she imported from Germany in 2008 as a three-year-old. This partnership has earned many blue ribbons from Regional Championships and CDI3* competitions to Team Gold at the 2013 Wellington CDIO3* Nations Cup. Herslow and Rosmarin swept the Small Tour classes at Dressage at Devon before claiming the 2013 The Dutta Corp./USEF Intermediaire I Dressage National Championship.
In 2014, Herslow returned to the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions presented by The Dutta Corp. with Rosmarin and finished fourth in The Dutta Corp./USEF Intermediaire I Dressage National Championship.
Herslow began her 2015 season with top performances on the Florida circuit, sweeping the Small Tour classes with Rosmarin during week seven of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. The pair helped USA I Team claim victory in the Stillpoint Farm FEI Nations Cup. Competing in Europe for the first time, Herslow made quite a statement with Rosmarin, winning the CDI1* Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I at München-Riem. At CDI4* Achleiten the pair won the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I.
During the off season, Herslow maintains a busy schedule with her clients at her Upper Creek Farm training facility in New Jersey.
