About Us at Valhalla Equestrian
We are thrilled to announce that effective January 2017, Anne Hedge is new owner of Valhalla Equestrian (formally Valhalla Stables) in Aubrey, Texas, newly minted now as Valhalla Equestrian, LLC. Valhalla has been developed into a fixture in the local hunter jumper community for the last 15 years by Rachel Morris. The facility has been the home site for clinics with George Morris, Anne Kursinski and Bernie Trauig. We are proud to have the opportunity to continue the important work she has done to bring a safe and functional show and clinic facility to the North Texas community.
Amenities of the 30 acre farm include a huge 250' x 150' Indoor area with new footing and screens. A 200 x 250 outdoor area, 2 full jump courses, 2 warmup arenas, 2 barns with 30 total stalls for boarders and training horses with 12x12 stalls with fly spray systems, tack rooms and indoor/outdoor wash racks. Multiple paddocks and pastures with a beautiful grove of Pecan trees border the east side of the property. 72 additional stalls available for horse show and clinic use. There are public restrooms, a concession stand and a new gravel parking area. Improvement plans for early 2017 include additional paddock space, a 70' round pen with sand footing, and continued footing improvements in all arenas.
Anne Hedge part owner and trainer of Valhalla Equestrian has been training, showing and teaching Hunters, Jumpers and Equitation for over 25 years. Anne has primarily been involved with private 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 in both the hunters and jumpers. Students under her tutelage have succeeded as well from cross rails up to the junior hunters and equitation. Anne 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 will be attending a mix shows according to ability level, from the numerous local shows held at Valhalla up to A and B rated THJA shows located across Texas, and USEquestrian AA shows around the country.
