Anne Hedge is a USHJA Certified Trainer and is the owner and head trainer at Valhalla Equestrian. Anne has been riding, training, showing and teaching Hunters, Jumpers and Equitation for over 25 years. Anne has been involved with breeding, training and sales of show hunters and jumpers, but has a great love of starting young horses undersaddle and also teaching children and adults great basics with a solid foundation. Horses coming out of her breeding and training program at Whitehedge Farm have gone on to Championships at all major horse shows across the country in both the hunters and jumpers. She has developed and trained the popular and important Hanoverian Hunter stallion, Cabalito since she found him as a young 3 year old stallion in Germany. Students under her tutelage have succeeded as well from cross rails up to the junior hunters and equitation. Anne believes in a very strong base of flatwork using classical American horsemanship. She believes training should happen at home, and horse shows are where the horses and students can go to show off their skills and compete against peers in their same ability level. The Valhalla Equestrian show team attends a mix shows according to ability level, from the numerous local shows held at Valhalla up to A rated USEF and THJA shows located across Texas, and US Equestrian AA shows around the country. Please check out out show calendars on the events page to keep up with where we will be showing!
