Kimberly ("Kim") Severson (born August 22, 1973 in Tucson, Arizona) is a highly successful international equestrian. She took several years of dressage lessons before training in eventing, and began with a background in Pony Club. One of her first upper level event horses was Jerry McGerry, whom she took intermediate.

Her most well known mount is the English Thoroughbred gelding Winsome Adante (aka “Dan”) owned by Linda Wachtmeister and Plain Dealing Farm. The pair won the Rolex Kentucky Three Day three times, an unmatched feat. Dan was retired in a ceremony at Rolex in 2008.[1]

She currently lives in Keene, Virginia.
