Amanda has been riding with her mother since she was old enough to stand.

In 2009 she qualified at Fourth Level with her mare, Epona’s Memorial Grace and was fourth overall at the USDF region 8 championships. In 2010 Amanda and Grace placed 3rd in the Region at Prix St Georges.  Amanda and her RPSI Mare, Ryleigh, have competed successfully through the levels and are earning their scores toward their USDF Gold Medal. They also qualified and competed at the Intermediate I Level in the Region 8 Championships in 2015.  Amanda has Ryleigh’s daughter, Pikadilly (Crickett), that she will be competing soon and 2 sales horses in training.

Amanda is the go to person for the young riders, children’s lessons and camps.  She is thorough and kind and loves working with the children and beginner riders as well as more advanced equestrians. She has created Drill Teams with the Working Students and organizes many summer camps. Amanda is excellent at introducing inspired games and fun strategies to make the learning easy and enjoyable.  Amanda also offers creative programs for students interested in a more full-time horse experience.
