Xanadu Farms is a family owned and operated farm by Mike and Kari Felton. Located in the
heart of the Ozarks 20 miles north of Rolla, MO. Kari, Mike and their two children all share
a passion for horses and riding.
Kari began riding when she was 5. She quickly excelled in the show ring and has competed in
both schooling shows and on the A circuit. In 2000 Kari received her ARIA (American Riding
Instructor's Association) Certificate in Hunter's. Kari has trained at Rambling Acres Farm,

with the day to day operations on the farm.
In addition, Kari received her NARHA (North American Riding for the Handicapped)
certification in 2007, and now offers lessons for the disabled. We are also proud to be a part
