Colleen Kelly

Colleen Kelly is the “seat & posture” expert. She started her career in exercise physiology, and now, some 30 years later is one of the world’s most sought after Adjunct Professors specializing in seat, position & balance of the horse rider. She has presented work at the world’s most prestigious FEI events including the World Equestrian Games, and has worked with Olympic & Paralympic champions in 7 Olympics in a row (since Barcelona!).

A retired judge of 30 years, she is the retiring President of the International Society of Rider Biomechanics Symposiums co-hosted with the University of Kentucky, Asbury University and Midway University. Even though she’s the only judge ever to receive 100% in the Official Dressage Judge’s exam, it’s her Aussie sense of humor that gives the crowds a bunch of fun!
