Kim Madden grew up in Colorado and began riding horses at the age of 6 at the Village Club in Cherry Hills Village.
For eight years, Kim rode and studied with the United States Pony Club which solidified her love for horses and the sport of riding. Through the USPC, she learned the value of horsemanship and the importance of always prioritizing the needs of the horse. She also learned fundamental horse handling skills, equine safety practices, and extensive veterinary care. Kim remained committed to Pony Club through her teen years, and went on to compete in 3-day eventing throughout her college years.
While competing, Kim maintained her relationship with the Village Club, working as a beginner riding instructor throughout college. In addition to eventing, she enjoyed riding with the Arapahoe Hunt.
After graduating from the University of Colorado, Kim decided to pursue a career in medicine. In 2003, she became an Orthopedic Physician Assistant and has worked in various areas of orthopedic surgery since that time. With her new found career, marriage and starting a family, her horse hobby was put on a temporary hold.
Luckily, her daughter showed a love for horses at a very young age which quickly brought Kim back into the equine community. Now at 17 years old, her daughter successfully competes in the Jumper ring with her horse Gilvano.
Through owning horses over the years and rehabbing a personal horse in 2017, Kim has always had a desire to combine her love of sports medicine with her equestrian background and passion. With the development of Peak Performance Equine Spa, Kim is eager to bring a fundamental and exciting new therapy to the Colorado area, and right to your horse's stall door!
