Meet Virginia

A lifetime of lessons

Virginia Shaw has been riding horses since she as a toddler and competing almost as long. She showed successfully on the jumper circuit at the national level through 4' jumpers and went to the IHSA National Championships when she was in college.


After a very successful junior career in all three rings, Virginia turned professional and has worked with many of the top trainers in the east; several of which she continues to train with to this day.

Training goals

Specializing in hunter/jumper training, Virginia enjoys coaching the middle and high school IEA teams, traveling to 'A' rated and local shows throughout New England, and teaching beginners the fundamentals of riding to help them reach their goals.
