    Bill has taken our daughter to a whole new level. She has taken but a few lessons at VVS and her skill level has risen exponentially. All the other folks who work or volunteer there are helpful and friendly and other riders are very helpful.

    After visiting a dozen barns in an epic search to find a horse to buy, I landed on Finn at Vintage Valley Sporthorses. I knew right away he was a great fit for me. Bill didn't push me and I could tell he had my interests in mind as well as the seller's (and Finn's!). He came to my barn after we moved Finn and helped me figure out how to connect better with him. After a previous awful horse buying experience, Bill was a real find--honest, thoughtful, and reliable.

    I cannot even explain how helpful and wonderful this barn is. I was riding as hunter since I was 5, then changed to a show jumper for almost 4 years. I moved to this barn in March and have never been so grateful for the help and motivation to becoming an eventer.Bill Payne has the magic touch on every horse he rides. From dressage to showjumping to cross country. I have never been so happy at the things he's had me accomplish. The past month or so, I have been working at the farm. From riding the training horses to mucking the stalls, each horse has the perfect care and treatment. Bill goes out of his way to make sure each horse has exactly what they need. The horses are put first at VVS.Bill pulls each of his riders into his office and has a conversation about what their goals are. When I got pulled in, I thought my goals were too out of reach. Turns out, with the motivation and help from my trainer, anything is possible. I have accomplished not only my first CT, but pulling in 1st place at my first show as an eventer. This barn is the best decision I have ever made. Not only for the sport, but as a person. The people around the barn are so extremely friendly and they feel like family. As soon as you walk in, they are there to greet you. I strongly recommend this farm. No matter the level you are riding at, he is there to take you one step further. Bill has taken me, as well as all the people there, one more step further than I thought I would ever be at.

    Bill is an exceptional instructor who displays patience, knowledge, and creativity when teaching. I have learned so much from my time here and it has been a great experience riding here. Bill worked with one of my TBs, now he is a joy to ride, loving dressage, and jumping with confidence. I have watched, and participated in sessions and would recommend Bill for any rider honestly looking to improve or learn dressage.

    Vvs has been nothing but a blessing in mine and my horses life. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to have the pleasure of boarding and training at this amazing, caring, and knowledgable facility. Bill Payne is an incredible coach/trainer/teacher and has completely advanced my horse and I; individually and as a team. I cannot say enough great things about Vvs. Vvs is a close knit team who enjoys a shared love for horses and riding. I am so happy with the changes I've seen not only in my riding throughout the last 7 months but also in my horse. Thank you Bill for everything

    Bill Payne is an excellent instructor. He is great at knowing just how far he can push you and your horse. I've already learned a lot from him and I know my horse benefits from his instruction also.

    I just got home from another awesome lesson with Bill Payne.Owner and trainer of Vintage Valley Sporthorses.I have to tell you all, Bill is by far the best I have even ridden with. He has a style and approach like none other. I have a trainer friend that watched a few of my lessons and she remarked that Bill was able to get me through riding situations that she could only hope to do with me.My confidence and riding style has soared in the few months I have had lessons with Bill.I would recommend Bill to everyone out there.I was not a real confident rider and Bill has really changed that for me.He is currently working with a horse I bought for trail, but Goldie, has so much potential that I think she should be shown performance. But, trails and balanced seat are my style.My daughter rode her a show at schooling dressage show, and they did extremely well for only 3 weeks preparation with her.Can't wait to see what Bill has in store for her next level of training. We know she loves cross country. Maybe even endurance.Shar Brady

    All I have to say is Bill Payne and all the staff and riders at VVS are wonderful people. They treat you like they've known you for years. They are caring and thoughtful of your needs as well as the needs of your horse. If you are looking for a facility that not only provides top notch training for your horses but also a place where you...the rider are treated with respect from either being a beginner rider to an advance level rider...then this is the place for you!!

    One week of training and horses have gone from sweating bundles of nerves to gorgeous, grounded delights. Can't imagine where Bill will take them in time! Thanks Bill!

    Vintage Valley is located in a beautiful setting. I like the family friendly atmosphere, professional horse care, lovely barns and ammenities and personal attention that I receive. Bill's extensive knowledge and instruction have helped me become a better rider and get the most out of my horses. The best part about this facility is the happy horses. I own three Arabians. Each one has different needs, likes and dislikes. Bill has created a unique training schedule, nutritional plan and socialization plan for each and each one has blossomed! Having happy content horses is super important to me.
