Vanessa and Patrick Conner have spent their lives riding and working with horses.  Vanessa has been training and teaching riding professionally in the Austin area for more than two decades. Vanessa trains riders in the disciplines of dressage, show jumping and eventing. Eventing is the "triathlon" of equestrian sports and consists of dressage, show jumping and cross-country jumping.  She is currently working on earning her United States Dressage Federation (USDF) bronze medal. Vanessa is an United States Eventing Association (USEA) Level I Certified Trainer.

The Conners' riding lesson and training program is based on the principles of classical dressage.  Vanessa specializes in dressage training and lessons through USDF third level, and she enjoys working with all types of riders and horses.  She also teaches jumping lessons through the USEA Preliminary Level (3'6"), and trains riders in the sport of eventing from the Green-as-Grass (beginner) level through Preliminary.  Because the Conners' focus on eventing, their program provides lessons in both show jumping and cross-country jumping.

The Conners conduct training at their facility in Liberty Hill, Texas, just Northwest of Austin.  The Conners host clinics with outside riding clinicians, and Vanessa is also available for clinics, horse show coaching and horse evaluations.
