Kelsey LOVE Thomas Performance Horses is dedicated to a training program which produces high quality working cow horses and cutting horses. From futurity colts to bridle horses, we strive to achieve top performance of horse and rider, with the ultimate goal of success in the show pen.
Kelsey LOVE Thomas Performance Horses focuses on working cow horses. She enjoys starting the prospects herself or with husband Buddy to best showcase the skill potential and trainability of each individual horse; slowly building connection and confidence to set up all maneuvers through connection and positive reinforcement. Kelsey herself rides each horse everyday and is deeply committed to the process of each horse’s journey.
From futurity to 4 and 5 year olds, the evolution of each horse is a privilege and paramount for Love Performance Horses. How each horse will shine is in the training process and show ring. The horse is the priority of Love Performance Horses.
For more details regarding our training philosophy, costs or other program details, please feel free to contact Kelsey.
Kelsey is proud to have a wonderful small group of youth and non-pros who come ride and take lessons. Seeing students progress is very rewarding and a large part of the training operation. We can assist with reining maneuvers, cow working horse skills and schooling techniques. From beginners to top level competitors, Kelsey is happy to assist you and your horse with riding and showing skills.
While highly skilled at training and riding horses, we cannot ignore the connection aspect of Kelsey’s training program. She possesses the rare abilities of kindness, clarity and confidence to her students. Instruction is tooled to the specific needs of each rider no matter their skill set. She is able to clearly share her vast knowledge with each of her students providing confidence to both horse and rider.

Kelsey is one of TWO World’s Greatest Horsewoman winners that we have on our consignor list, but she is also the first ever winner and the only current 2-time winner. She’s a 10-time world champion between the RHAA National Finals, WGHW, Women’s Ranch Rodeo Association, and the NRCHA.
Buddy has worked on some of the most notable ranches in the world and might be Kelsey’s biggest competition. They’ve come together to breed, raise, and train horses that the public covets. Super talented, super versatile, and super handy, these horses can’t help but please. Standing a Metallic Cat stud on a handful of well-bred mares as well as breeding to some of the most soughtafter stallions in the game today, the Loves have the makings to be around the breeding game for many, many moons.
