Vefele's Equine Partnerships

Vefele’s Equine Partnerships (VEP) was established in 2012 by Vefele Petruik to provide quality education that brings horses and riders together in harmony.   In addition to serving the established dressage community, VEP aims to provide both competitive and non-competitive riders with a safe and fun environment to grow their relationships with their horses. 


While pursuing success in the show ring, miscommunications often arise that can damage the relationship between horse and rider.  The focus at VEP is to foster the classical collaboration that harmonizes communication between partners. 

At VEP, we work with you by providing common sense and readily understood techniques that strengthen the bond between you and your horse.  This bond  is based on sympathy, confidence, and respect, and as such, will be a strong, enduring bond. 


We at VEP work tirelessly with all riders at all levels and in all disciplines to help each individual rider build a lifelong synergy with his/her horse, and we want to help you do the same. 



Gatsby did well in the Robert Gharibzadeh Clinic which was held at the beginning of September 2017.  Robert was pleased with Gatsby's progress over the last two months, Gatsby is becoming a much more confident and talented horse.  Robert will be returning to Gilroy and there will be another Clinic the end of October. 

VEP's regrettably has to postpone the open house due to a conflict of dates with the USDF L-Program.  The new date of the open house will be posted soon!  

Congratulations to Adria Spano and Gala for achieving a 69% their first time out at first level!  We had a wonderful time at American Sporthorse showing on August 28, 2017.  

Congratulations to Vefele for completing the 'Race Thru the Redwoods' 10K run in Felton on August 20th! 

Congratulations to Vefele for completing the 'Wharf to Wharf' 10K run in Santa Cruz on July 23rd! 

On August 12, 2017 Gatsby and Vefele enjoyed showing at the Greenville Equestrian Center, earning a 61% and 67% at second level.  We look forward to showing at this beautiful and professionally run facility again!

VEP's first Educational Presentation was a success!  Thank you to all of those who attended.  We look forward to having more of these presentations in the future!  

Congrats to Vefele and Rockefeller! They achieved their first score towards the USDF Gold Medal!  Rockefeller and Vefele have been partners for 10 years, working their way up the levels. 


The Cowboy Dressage Worlds was a blast! Vefele recieved 73.75% on her self made and chorographed Lone Ranger freestyle. Here she is prepping Lillith (Super Proof) by painting some designs on her rear, idea thanks to some very creative clients. Look to our Videos page to watch the Freestyle finals or click here.

Congrats to Adria Spano on completing her last two PSG scores on Rockefeller! Two awesome rides to finish what you started with your late horse Padrig. Competing it in two shows you earned every ounce of that medal with your hard work, tenacity and willingness to learn how to ride Rockefellers quirky personality. Wishing you great things to come.

What are we up to next?

Our primary trainer has some exciting things on the horizon!  Take a look at where she'll be!  Stop by to meet Vefele and find out more about what VEP has to offer!
