Victoria Jones has competed very successfully at dressage at Small Tour level both nationally and internationally. She is also a highly skilled dressage coach at all levels, training an array of dressage and event riders from her base in Leicestershire, which she shares with her husband, event rider Richard Jones. Victoria started riding at the age of seven after her parents found her and her sister trying to teach themselves to ride on some horses in a neighbouring field, after they had recovered from the shock, they decided to send them for riding lessons – as they wanted to ride so badly!
After competing for GB as Junior and Young Rider, including competing at the European Championships, Victoria had a long break due to illness and having two children. However, she made a tremendous return on her two horses, Tijis H and Wiepke II.
- Victoria won Premier Leagues nationally at Prix St Georges and Inter 1 level, competed at the Winter and National Championships
