Introduction: Located in Orange Park Acres. I'm specialized in but not limited to restarting horses, starting horses, natural horsemanship, english disciplines (dressage, english pleasure, jumping)... Western disciplines (western pleasure, reining, gymkhana), trail work, and ground work. I focus on gentle and minimal methods along with correct communication, to build a partnership with your horse that can take you from start to finish, any direction and any level you want to go. Discover a new way to ride that you AND your horse will understand. STOP fighting and forcing your horse, build a partnership, make quick progress and start winning. Take the first step, reach out with any questions. Tell me about your horse or your riding experience, and choose a time and date for your first session on my very easy to schedule calendar. business hours are Monday - Thursday 10- 3 Horse owners only $80/hr

Private Horseback Riding Lessons

I hadn't been on a horse for 60 years so was a little nervous. Victoria made me feel at ease, also she was patient and encouraging. I've scheduled my next lesson and highly recommend!

I had so much fun with Victoria! She knows horses and really makes you feel safe, especially if it’s your first time or if it’s been a while since you ridden. I felt like she was really responsive toward my own personal riding goals and was willing to go the extra mile to help me meet them. Her horse is very well trained and safe. Definitely going back for more!

I really enjoyed my horse back riding lesson with Victoria, she is really patient and kind! She is very observant too, she goes over everything you need to know about riding a horse, and safely doing it.. she carefully watches you and tells you what to do and how to do it better, and Mercedes (the horse) is super gentle and sweet! I don’t have much experience with horses and loosing fear of these gentle giants and feeling comfortable with the horse is big deal! I honestly felt safe and comfortable! I will definitely be going back for more lessons! ❤️

Victoria's clear instruction and easy manner has made me comfortable on a horse for the first time. She points out the nuance physical actions so I can now give clear directions the horse. She makes it fun and productive so I made quick improvements.

Hi Michelle! Thank you for the great compliment. I think you handle situations so well and you have a naturally beautiful riding position. I DO like to focus on the nuance physical actions lol
