Meet the Family

Kathy Monico - Owner

Kathy MonicoA lifelong horsewoman by passion, Kathy is a registered pharmacist by profession. She has been riding since childhood, beginning her “show career” as a barrel racer on a 3/4 Arabian mare whom she successfully competed on for over 15 yrs. Joining the Arabian horse community, Kathy has multiple regional and national wins in western pleasure, reining, working cow horse and cutting, riding horses who were part of, or the result of, her breeding program. Kathy is a respected horsewoman on the national show circuit.

Many of the young horses bred and sold from NorthWoods Ararbians have earned major wins with their new owners, including a six-time national champion performance horse. However, not all of Kathy’s “babies” have become big time show horses. Many are much loved family horses used for trail riding or other types of competition (dressage, 4H, endurance racing.)

Kathy oversees all aspects of NorthWoods Arabians, with an emphasis on high standards of quality care, safety & honesty in all business dealings.
