A friend of the Parker area since she rode her horse through the town on her way across America a few years ago, Linny Kenney is now a frontrunner in Martha Stewart’s American Made competition.
Linny first appeared in Parker in 2010 with her horse Sojourner. She came on my show on KLPZ 1380am and spent the weekend visiting, making friends and seeing the world-famous Desert Bar before heading on her way toward the east coast. Somewhere between Arizona and Texas, Linny fell in love with one of her best friends and traveling companions Walter, and they were married the following year in New Hampshire. Melissa and I traveled to their house in the forests of the White Mountains for the wedding, which was wonderful.
Arabian Horse World magazine covered Linny’s ride across America and her wedding (photos by Melissa Wright HERE). Now, Linny’s leatherwork is getting her noticed, with accolades from critics and happy customers who buy custom leather guitar straps with unique artwork on them, leather bags, wallets, cuffs and more.
Linny is currently a frontrunner in the American Made competition, Martha Stewart’s contest for craft, design, food, style and technology. With almost 6000 votes, she’s in the top ten, but needs an extra push to get her all the way. Making it into the finals would get her onto national radio and Stewart’s website, and in a position to build a lot of recognition.
