20/20 is an instruction based farm. We offer lessons in horsemanship, riding, natural horsemanship and ground work.
If you are interested in fox hunting, please contact us to see how we can help. We are right in the middle of Loudoun Hunt.
What makes us different
We offer a whole horse approach to learning how to horseback ride. All students are taught herd behavior and body language. They also learn how to use their body language to engage with the horse. The benefits of working with the horse, in hand, on the ground, are immense. Ground work sets you up as leader in your horse’s eyes, it creates a bond that simply horseback riding alone, cannot create, and it keeps you safe while determining if your horse is mentally ready for the day’s
Of course, our equestrians also learn to properly ‘catch’ their horse, in a field or in a stall, lead correctly, groom and all aspects of tacking up.
We teach riding lessons from age 6 and up. All levels are welcome. We also love teaching adult equestrians and specialize in those adults returning to riding lessons after a number of years away from the sport.
20/20 Horsemanship is a riding school, owned and operated by Loretta Arey. We cater to riders who are serious about learning
1. About the horse and
2. How to communicate with the horse and
3. Correct riding.
Equestrian Center that teaches riding lessons, hosts hunter/jumper/dressage shows, runs summer camps, hosts Girl Scout events, and birthday parties.

Van Vixen Farm, located on 96 acres in pristine hunt country is a full service training, sales, boarding, teaching, and camp facility. Heather Heider, a native of Loudoun County specializes in training hunt seat equitation, producing quality trained horses, and one of a few in the country that provides fox hunt hirelings. While still participating in local VHSA shows with students of all ages, half the year is focusing on training slowly and correctly young horses and retraining horses with problems to produce the horse for the owner of their desired sport. The other half of the year focusses on lessons and taking clients out hunting.
