Kellie Hinely


My name is Kellie Hinely and I am an AQHA Professional Horseman.  I am a horse trainer and owner of Trendsetter Performance Horses in Chino Hills, CA.  I specialize in developing competitive youth and amateur all around teams.  Personally, I find the trail and western riding the most rewarding to show.  I currently serve as the youth director for California and hold a position on the board of the Pacific Coast Quarter Horse Association.  Last year, I was voted most valuable professional horseman for PCQHA.  I am passionate about my career and AQHA.

Trendsetter Performance Horses was established in 2001.  I have 2 full time assistant trainers and keep 40 horses in training.  We show on a national level and annually attend the quarter horse congress in Ohio, AQHYA world, AQHA open and amateur world, as well as the AQHA select world in Amarillo, TX.   Please visit my website at 

I live in Ontario, CA with my husband and two kids.  My son Trent is 10 and my daughter Taylor is 7.  Taylor is in love with the horses and when we are not showing, we are spending family time together on the beach or riding dirt bikes.
