Opening of Cobalt Stables



Kristen Tramposh is proud to announce the opening of Cobalt Stables in Kansas City, Kansas. “I couldn’t be more excited about going out on my own,” says Kristen. I loved working with the amateurs and junior exhibitors at Peeper Ranch, and I’ve always loved starting young horses and working on their development. I am super excited about this.”

Kristen has been riding and winning championship titles most of her life. Her career highlights definitely demonstrate her love of young horses. Most recently, she directed Turned Up to Grand National and World Champion Three-Year-Old English Pleasure titles at Oklahoma. She also rode World Champion Futurity Three-Year-Old Superbad to multiple world and reserve world titles. Another highlight in her career came from Optimus Prime GCH, the 2010 English Pleasure Four-Year-Old World Champion.

Throughout her career Kristen has trained and ridden English horses and hunter horses. Hunter horses that she has been successful with include RWJ Mille, Toast of Broadway, PJB Aristide, and LLL Tzar Alexander GCH.

Of course, one of her most memorable hunters was MEM Once Again. Kristen trained him to his first World Championship with Ali Denzel, a junior exhibitor, when he was a four-year-old. They won the Junior Exhibitor Hunter Pleasure World Championship two years in a row.
 In all, Kristen has trained junior exhibitor and amateur horses and riders to over 50 Grand National and World Championship titles.

The barn is in an extremely convenient location, just 15 minutes from the Kansas City Airport, in the upscale Legends area. “It’s great for clients to come and visit – so easy to get to, we have lots of shopping and hotels in the Legends, and we’re not far from downtown.”

Kristen is pleased with the new space for Cobalt Stables. “It’s an immaculate barn with beautiful new spacious stalls, a heated lobby, indoor and outdoor arenas.

“We are starting off with a great string of horses and some wonderful clients,” says Kristen. “We’ll start out at Chapter 5 and Gold Cup and Jubilee and of course, end up at Oklahoma. I’ll be adding shows as I get more input from clients about where they want to show.”
