Beyond the Saddle Ep. 42: Communications Specialist for Five Rivers and Shining KL Partners, Kim Rounds

Tune in to find out how Kim balances these two jobs in order to live her best horse life.

Kim Rounds can be described as aggressively supportive and wildly ambitious, and she has carved herself a niche within the Ag industry to braid in her love of cow horses.

Her schedule is full as the Specialty Beef Program Manager/Social Media Manager for Five Rivers Cattle Feeding and the head of Marketing and Sales for her “side hustle”, Shining KL Partners. Her love of all things equine and bovine have brought her to be a groom for an international show jumper, a National Beef Ambassador, a teaching assistant for CSU’s Legends of Ranching class, back-to-back top 5 finishes at the National Reined Cow Horse Association’s Celebration of Champions, and in 2021 was a part of both COWGIRL Magazine’s 30 under 30 and Northern Colorado’s 40 Under 40 presented by Biz West. Her weekdays are spent at the feedyard, overseeing specialty beef programs, taking pictures of cattle, giving tours, and generating content while her evenings, weekend, and every bit of spare time are spent riding her cow horses.
