Bonnieville, KY

Located on 150 scenic acres of rolling farm-land with the Bacon Creek winding its way through the middle is Cardinal Farms. This family-owned farm has been in operation almost a quarter of a century and continues to be owned by the Clausons, the family who began it. The trainer and riding instructor at Cardinal Farms are Adam and Desiree Clau-son, son and daughter-in-law of Don and Janet Clauson. Adam grew up on this farm and gained a deep admiration and love for the American Saddlebred; he knew from the time that he was very young he would be a Saddlebred trainer one day.
