Victoria Shade

Victoria Shade is the debut author of The Tale of the Dancing Slaughter Horse, an inspiring and compelling true story of how a girl and her horse changed each other’s lives forever. It was released in October 2016.

Victoria spent her early years competing in dressage, a sport that tests the unity of horse and rider. During her years of college and law school, she earned her U.S.D.F. Bronze and Silver medals and competed in the Regional Championships. Victoria then met her future husband, Brian, another horse-lover.

After college, Victoria went on to graduate law school, and is licensed to practice law in New York and New Jersey. She focuses on animal law and personal injury protection. She is a member of the New York State Bar Association Animal Law Committee, as well as the Animal Law Committee’s Legislative subcommittee. Victoria also sits on the board of the Hudson Valley SPCA, is a member of the ASPCA’s Horse Action Team, and is an attorney member of the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

Victoria now lives with her family on a horse farm, Moon Shade Farm. In 2015, they welcomed  a beautiful baby girl into the family, Olivia Jane.
