Equestrian Visions Xtreme

Andrea Brown began equestrian vaulting at the age of 9 in her native Stuttgart, Germany, and instantly became hooked on its blend of gymnastics and horseback riding. Her love of horses continues, and today, she’s a certified Ride Right coach. Under her tutelage at Equestrian Visions Xtreme, new generations of riders gain balance and confidence through both traditional horseback-riding lessons and equestrian-vaulting lessons, which combine horseback riding and gymnastics in a more aesthetically pleasing way than horse leotards. Having formerly worked in therapeutic riding, Andrea emphasizes interspecies communication in her lessons, and she is also well-versed in sports psychology for equestrians.
