Hello, my name is Kristi Kay May, I am the owner and supervisor of Legend Acres. I am originally from Port Hope, Michigan where dairy cows outnumber the people. I got my first horse around the age of six, and have grown up with horses and have shown and competed all my life. I did take a break from horses while I was in the Army, when I was able to purchase a farm outside Fort Campbell, Kentucky Horses came back into my life. Legend Acres came about as way to fill a need in the community. As an owner of a large dog to go out of town and board my dog was the equivalent to my mortgage payment. As a disabled veteran I was also unable to work in the traditional setting of a job. I created Legend Acres to create a job for myself and to provide affordable quality pet care! As the owner operator of Legend Acres Animals are my passion. I currently have a bachelor's in Animal Health Technology/ Pre-Veterinary Medicine from Murray State University. A Masters in Animal Science with a Veterinary Practice Manager Certification at Murray State University. My Thesis is Equine Osteoarthritis. I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant at Murray State University in the Animal Health Technology Program. I am a certified Dog Obedience Instructor through Animal Behavior College. AKC Evaluator, CHA Certified Riding Instructor, and CHA Certified Equine Facility Manger. I have a Certification in Equine Nutrition from University of Gelph and a Cognitive Canine Behavior Certification from Duke University. I am a Dog Obedience Mentor for Animal Behavior College and host Externship Students at all our locations. I am a Certified Pet Therapy Handler and Certified Pet Therapy Team with my Golden Retriever Legend through Pet Partners. Legend and I participate in many local schools and programs. I am pursuing a Behavior Consultant Certification through International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). I am a serial Entrepreneur and my goal in life to to touch others and help them along their path in whatever way is needed at the time. I have several business that I am involved in as well as Legend Acres! I have multiple health issues that I have been able to regulate through diet, nutrition, and fitness! I have a side business in Health and Wellness with Thrive by Lev-el helping others take back their health! If you are not healthy and well and taking care of yourself it is hard to function not only in life but you are unable to spill that over into other peoples lives!

I have an interest in education and professional development and I help people take back control of their finances and then to improve on themselves personal, spiritually, and professionally. Leaders are readers and staying current in people skills and business is important no matter the line of work you maybe in! I am an educator at heart and along with teaching Dog Obedience and Horse Back Riding Lessons, I am also an assistant TLAERInstructor and teach courses in Equine First Aid and conduct one day TLAER introduction courses as well as Barn Fire prevention and Disaster preparedness!

As a serial Entrepreneur I look for ways to help others get started on their dream as a Board Member of the Stewart County Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Robertson County Chamber of Commerce I have created Legend Acres Business Solutions and help others with social media marketing and assistance in how to get started in business. With a Masters in Business Management and numerous certifications in Social Media Marketing and Planning I can teach you how to take control of your online presents or maintain your platforms for you! I enjoy giving back and volunteer my time each year to the Christian Veterinary Mission as a Large Animal Veterinary Technologist and travel to Pine-ridgeNative American Reservation. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs Legend and Shilo Anne, horseback riding, kayaking, and reading.
