Heidi, 4S Ranch

Heidi's youngest daughter, Elizabeth on SylvesterDVG Show Stables at Blue Fox Farm is a wonderful place to take your children. The opportunity to work with horses and great staff has been so rewarding for my girls, 11 & 17. There is no place they would rather be than riding their horses and going to horse shows! Alixe and her staff are wonderful!dvgshowstables.com

Anne, Rancho Santa Fe

Alixe Garcia is one of the most talented equine hunter/ jumper trainers in Southern California. She is very knowledgeable in her field and truly goes the extra mile for all of her horses and clients. She is an amazing person with radiant energy. We are pleased to continue our professional relationship with DVG Stables and Alixe and would recommend her services to anyone who is serious about their equine future!


Ingrid, Oceanside

I moved to Southern California almost three years ago, and was getting quite frustrated trying to find the right match for me.  I’ve been riding for 30 years doing hunter/jumpers, and have high expectations.   Alixe and DVG Show Stables have this uncommon balance of being highly competitive in the show arena, as well as providing a relaxed and fun atmosphere at home.  They are equally welcoming to the novice as to the advanced riders, and have opportunities and horses (sales, leases, lessons) available for both (this is important to me, as I currently don’t have my own horse).   It is evident that there is tried and true, solid methodology to the instruction and training.  I can finally say that I look forward again to my barn time!!


Lauren, Hollywood

Lauren on Thoroughbred rescue, RodolphoI live in LA but keep my horse in training at DVG. My OTTB loves his program and I am so happy to have found such an amazing trainer that really goes above and beyond to help me meet my goals while keeping my horse’s well being a priority. This is a wonderful barn for adult amateurs. Alixe Del Valle Garcia and Chloe Dibley have a well rounded program for any horse lover 🙂 I definitely recommend DVG to those looking to get their kids into a safe, constructive riding school or for any adults looking to get started or to start back up!


‘Roo’, Carlsbad

As a novice adult rider who rode very briefly as a tweenager I decided to get back into the sport just a few years ago. I was very happy to find the environment created by the trainers and riders at DVG Show Stables: relaxed, welcoming, family oriented, and fun. I have never felt more comfortable in the saddle, and confident about my knowledge and capability handling horses. I really appreciate that I also feel comfortable bringing my family, which includes a toddler and teenagers, to the stables and shows. Thanks girls, keep up the good work!


Kori, Los Angeles

I had ridden and shown most of my youth and came to DVG after a 10+ year hiatus from riding.  I can honestly say after working with trainers and instructors on both coasts, being a bit burnt on the ethics and politics of the equine industry, that this has been my best experience, by far.

DVG Stables radiates a  positive team environment with  healthy happy horses and confident successful riders. Alixe teaches by her expert analysis  of both horse and rider, blending and applying the biomechanics of each. She accurately and instantly solves problems that are ‘vaguely addressed’ by other riding instructors. Alixe’ s students feel immediate success and leave each lesson feeling accomplished and confident.

I would strongly recommend this riding program to anyone; to instill classic functional riding style to a beginner, as well as to bring a veteran or professional to the next level.


Stacia, Rancho Santa Fe

When I was a child I was introduced to horses during summer camp.  Soon those two week sessions became two months not only because of the wonderful camaraderie but primarily my love of horses.  It was only a matter of time before I began taking private lessons and was paired with the best partner a young girl could ask for, Mainspring.  Together we perfected our craft, won shows, and at the time I felt that I would never have that type of connection again.

Stacia on her soul-mate Elvis

After a 20+ year hiatus, I moved to California and began searching for a stable to begin riding again.  Everything about DVG Show Stables at Blue Fox Farm was exactly what I was looking for: wonderful facility, knowledgeable staff and a family atmosphere.  When I met and began working with my trainer, Alixe, her level of expertise was impressive, encouraging and could help me grow as a rider.  After Alixe began studying my riding style, she said “I have the perfect partner for you!”

Alixe introduced me to a gorgeous, 18hh horse named Elvis.  If humans can have an animal soul mate, then I felt that had just met mine!  While I never thought the ‘perfect match’ could ever happen to me again, Alixe saw a winning combination between Elvis and me.  Together we have competed in many Adult Amateur classes, and walked away with ribbons and even a Grand Champion honor.  I will forever be grateful to her for bringing Elvis into my life!
