Background: Employing over 20 years of knowledge and unique experience, Hilary is a top notch horseman who radiates enthusiasm and passion for her horses & students. Hilary’s lifelong passion for horses began at an early age. She started riding at the age of 5. With natural tact and ability in and out of the saddle, she quickly began competing on the national level with high success. She continued to develop her knowledge and skills working under & mentoring some of our country’s greatest horsemen, Hall of Fame inductee Rick Fancher, Olympic Gold Medalists Leslie Howard Burr, Julie Ulrich, and many more. Her family lives and breathes horses as well. Her mother, Joan Vijan, breeds both pony & horse hunter prospects. Taking a break from the show world Hilary began to start the youngsters from the ground-up. Her horsemanship in combination with her expansive experience in the show ring creates a unique outlook and perspective on the horse that is rarity in todays world. She continues with eagerness to share her knowledge with others.
