Meet the Equestrian Staff

Lea Edwards  –  Equestrian Director

My name is Lea Edwards.

I’m from Camden, South Carolina.

4th year at Vega, DH of Equestrian

My favorite things to do (besides riding horses) are creating things, throwing on the wheel, painting, glamping with my kids, and listening to Dead and Co.

The hardest thing about the summer of 2020 was staying in hot South Carolina for the summer. I love Vega!, meeting/working with new staff, and then finally seeing the campers arrive! That’s an epic day!  

Something new I learned? I learned all about Tic Tok and some new moves with my daughter, Eliza.

What I’m most excited for is seeing everyone; especially my little equestrians, jumping in the lake (pre-camp), and taking campers and horses swimming.
