GET TO KNOW THE BCE HORSES
Valerie loves being in the saddle training the 12-15 BCE horses nearly every daylight hour (and sometimes before and after!) every day of the week. Some reside at BCE to be solely Valerie’s competition horses. Others are at BCE to advance their skills or learn new ones so that they could be more experienced, responsive and successful when their owners are in the saddle. Please take the time to look below and read and learn about some of the current and past horses in training and enjoy reading their stories!
