Show Me Farm North


   If we put bits into the mouths of horses so that they obey us, we guide their whole bodies as well.  Peter 3:3

We strive to foster a family atmosphere where boarders can relax and enjoy the peaceful, laid back feel of the farm…whether they are training for a show or just relaxing with their horse.  Show Me Farm North is a place where both horse and rider feel at home.

Kayla McDanel

Trainer and Coach


Hailing from Louisiana, Kayla has been teaching and coaching for the past 5 years in the metro-Atlanta area.  Kayla’s love of horses began as a child.  When she told her Mom she wanted riding lessons, Mom said, “Let’s wait a year and see if you still want to ride at that time.” Well, of course she did and so began her journey of horses and riding.  To afford her lessons, she learned to clean a stall and help at the barn, which she did until she graduated from high school.  Upon graduation, she worked as a groom and traveled extensively on the show circuit. 


Kayla became interested in learning more about horse breeding and sought employment at a breeding farm where she developed proficiency in breeding and starting young horses. Kayla’s background is diverse in both the hunter and western disciplines including expertise in hunters, jumpers, equitation, barrels/poles, reining, and ranch riding.


To encourage and advance her students, Kayla focuses on continuous learning.  She desires to educate and train well-rounded, confident and skilled riders who have the knowledge, competence and tools they need to achieve their goals.
