ABOUT Raquel Santos 

Raquel Santos has always loved horses. Her experience began at an early age with her father, Carlos Santos, a jockey turned FEI dressage trainer. As she grew up learning in her father's business, she loved the concept that a rider could dance with horses.


She graduated from CSU-Channel Islands with a Bachelor's degree in psychology, then developed her dressage business in Palos Verdes. To further her riding education she went to Dressuurtal Van Baalen, home of Coby and Marlies Van Baalen for 6 months to learn the ways to run a successful dressage competition barn.


She returned to California to re-start her business in Los Angeles in Summer 2019. She has developed a string of horses into the levels of dressage and showing. 

She is currently based in Orange County at Peacock Hill Equestrian Center, where she is developing a dressage sales program and training horses and their clients in competing.
