About Vita Putter

about-vitaFor over 20 years, Vita Putter has been deeply involved with the South Florida equestrian community as a champion rider and accomplished trainer. She has a connection with the horses, and can feel what most cannot. At age eleven she took second place in a national competition, and won her first Florida State Championship at the age of twelve. Throughout her career, she has won or placed in over a hundred competitions, and has continued her success as a trainer and mentor to this day.

Just as important as her competition success, she develops strong connections with all of her students, helping them achieve their equestrian goals, and training many of them to be champions in their own right. She has taught beginners and experts, both children, and adults, in the Hunter, Jumper, and Equitation division.

From an early age, Vita had a deep passion for horses and began taking formal riding lessons at the age of seven. Her riding career includes instruction from top trainers Miguel (MS Equestrian Farm), Alan Korotkin (Castlewood Farm), and Pablo Gamboa (World Class Equestrian Center.)

As a horse trainer, Vita has started, showed, and sold many horses that have gone on to have very successful show careers. Vita has dedicated her life to the equine world and shows the utmost compassion and respect when working with the horses and her students.

  • A horse is a thing of beauty... none will tire of looking at him as long as he displays himself in his splendor.


  • I frequently dream of being on these horses' backs and running across a field. And the horse and I are one.

    William Shatner,

  • All equestrians, if they last long enough, learn that riding in whatever form is a lifelong sport and art, an endeavor that is both familiar and new every time you take the horse out of his stall or pasture.

    Jane Smiley,

  • Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

    Dale Carnegie,
