Posted October 23, 2001
Kenneth E. Mills, has joined the staff of Saddle Horse Report as an advertising/editorial representative. Kenny has been in love with the American Saddlebred since the age of 10. At that time he took his first riding lesson at Continental Farm in Charleston, W.Va. As he grew his interests expanded into the hackney/roadster divisions. Mills has had the pleasure of working for such trainers as John F. Scott, DeLovely Farm, and Todd Graham.
