Welcome to VG Dressage!

ABOUT VIRGINIA GILES


Virginia Giles of VG Dressage has spent her lifetime learning about and learning from horses. Virginia's teaching and training style is thoughtful and positive, using suppling exercises and creative explanations to help the horse and rider to their goal.
 
In horse training she has a similar approach believing that kindness, encouragement and a sense of humor will help the entire team to leave the arena happier and more harmonious than how they walked in. Virginia feels it is important to approach teaching and training this way as there is never just one way to solve a problem, and both students and horses have a variety of learning styles.
 
Virginia believes in utilizing dressage work as physical therapy for both horse and rider. She specializes in helping the horse and rider team to be their best both physically and mentally and to, through cross training and correct dressage basics, truly enjoy working together.

Virginia furthers her education regularly through lessons and clinics. She trains regularly with FEI trainer Hallie Calliham and clinics with Grand Prix trainer Susan Martin. She is currently working towards her USDF bronze medal and her 'L' judge's license.
 
As much as it is important to achieve one's goals and to improve one's horsemanship and riding, Virginia believes it's also important that we enjoy what we do!
 
Whether your goals are to show, to improve your horse’s way of going or simply to develop a healthy relationship with your horse, VG Dressage will help you get there.
