Veronica is a 49 year old Scottish graphic designer who has over 30 years experience as a riding instructor teaching children and adults to ride.
She holds the British Horse Society's Assistant Instructor's Certificate, BHSAI since 1986 and also the "Técnico Deportivo en Equitación Nivel I" awarded by the Spanish "Federación Andaluza de Hípica" in 2008.
Over all these years she has developed a holistic vision of riding, taking into account the combination of horse and rider as a whole, not just in the physical sense, but also through the senses and the connection between you and your horse.
When she met her current (Spanish) husband, together they bought the piece of land in 1994 on which they built their own house and stables. They live and work here now for 15 years along with their two sons in a beautiful area in the province of Malaga.
