Brigitte Huber was born with the horse bug. She grew up in her native Switzerland on her parent’s ranch hunting and jumping horses and ponies through the forest. At fifteen, the precocious teenager persuaded her parents to let her work through a three year apprenticeship studying with Ernst Wettstein in order to qualify for her Bereiter’s license. She was fortunate enough, at that time, to spend a month at the acclaimed Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria observing them train the famed Lipizzaner stallions. With her Bereiter’s license in hand, she exchanged the chilly gray Swiss winters for the warm azure of Spain’s Costa del Sol where she competed in dressage at the Grand Prix level. It was there she developed her love of Andalusian horses. Eventually she brought her unique knowledge of horsemanship to Southern California and the Santa Ynez Valley where she trains and performs Andalusians for exhibitions and dressage. She is fluent in German, Spanish and English and resides permanently in Southern California.
