The Yard Equine Center is the fulfillment of Vickie and Pat Montgomery’s personal and professional goals.

Vickie is passionately dedicated to reducing the challenges trainers, owners and veterinarians face in keeping the equine athletes sound. Formally a professional hunter/jumper trainer, Vickie believes one of the biggest responsibilities a trainer has is keeping client’s show horses fit and sound to compete on the ‘A’ circuit.

Vickie has study numerous treatments used by traditional veterinarians and non-traditional health providers. Today, with the support of an extensive network of veterinarians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nutritionists, blacksmiths, and other like-minded professionals, she passionately continues to study and provide the best services for the health and welfare of horses.

Pat provides the cornerstone for The Yard facility. Pat orchestrated the building of the facility and continues to run the day to day operation of The Yard. Today he actively manages the breeding program - handling the stallions, foaling out, performing daily rounds to ensure the horses are safe and sound, and the horse transportation to & from The Yard for clients.
