Owners and Founders of Chateau Vista Farm, LLC...


      From an early age, our combined journey in horsemanship has been extensive. Kaylee Monserrate specifically rose from showing Arabians, being a western pleasure competitor, riding through levels in Dressage from various professionals including Conrad Schumacher, to finally competing on the National “AA” Hunter Jumper circuit as an amateur and a professional hunter/jumper rider having the opportunity to ride, work, and train under many well-known hunter jumper professionals. After completing work at Maffitt Lake Farms in Cumming, Iowa, Kaylee flew down under to ride and train with 1988 Seoul, Korea, Olympic Show Jumping Individual Silver Medalist, Greg Best at his farm Silverstream of Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

      Upon return to the States, she took a working student-rider position under American-based German Grand Prix jumper rider and World Cup Qualified International rider and trainer Wilhelm Genn at Rheinland Farm in Lebanon, Ohio. There she also assisting with the care and training needs of his top string of International Grand Prix Jumpers. After two years, and to continue her college education in medicine, we took a position under professionals Richard and Catherine Rinehart of Rinehart Farm in Westfield, Indiana as an assistant professional. There for six years, she was able to enhance skills in riding, showing, and teaching while also flying overseas to find quality imports in Europe through her sponsorships.

      Back in her hometown of Des Moines, Iowa, and as an amateur rider, she now rides and shows her and her husband's international-level warmblood imports, the farm's breeding and home-bred warmbloods, as well as the national-level sporthorses they own and have raised under the strings: Team Monserrate Equestrian, CVL Monserrate Stud International, Chateau Vista Farm LLC, Chateau Vista Show Jumpers, and Equisport Forge and Farriery. Kaylee has also ridden or cliniced under the guidance of many wonderful professionals all to whom she is thankful for the opportunities to have studied under while as an amateur and professionals.

       Matt Monserrate is an accomplished farrier having graduated at Oklahoma Horseshoeing School in 2016, he enjoys the challenges of corrective trimming and shoeing for the sporthorse and young horses. He cares for the hoof needs of each of our team's horses and foals from the day they are born throughout their competition career. Matt has served clientele in the state of Iowa under current brand Equisport Forge and Farriery and he currently is exclusively the farrier for the farm's different horse strings. Matt is also an avid blacksmith and can be heard pounding on his anvil all hours of the day out at his forge shop. He also assists the show team with daily grooming needs as well as using his skills as an Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic in Aviation Maintenance to keep up the farm's many pieces of equipment, machinery, trucks, and trailers. Matt also helps with the day-to-day breeding and collection needs of our farm's broodmares and stallions. His continued desire for optimum horsemanship daily keeps the inner workings of the farm's operations focused on the most important aspect first and foremost, the well-being of each and every horse.

       The Monserrate team strives to cater to the needs of North American Show Jumping by developing Chateau Vista Farm's breeding program to offer quality European bloodlines to the North American market.
