I've been riding for years & I'm not progressing. I'm JUST NOT TALENTED OR FIT ENOUGH.
You rode horses as a kid & now that you're an adult you were so excited to get back into horseback riding again... or so you THOUGHT! You started taking lessons again over the past year & you feel so DISAPPOINTED. What you once thought was very easy as a child now seems to be incredibly DIFFICULT. Not only are you having trouble getting your body to do what you want it to do, but you are leaving your lessons CONFUSED & FRUSTRATED!
You've been STUCK at the same level now for several months. You can barely canter without feeling like you might fall off. Your lessons seem to be on repeat with the only things your instructor really says, "Heels down, more leg, half halt." You don't receive any detailed instructions or FEEDBACK.
You are starting to think that you're not a TALENTED enough rider or fit enough for riding.You start to think about maybe giving up on riding & pursuing something else, yet you LOVE being around the horses. You keep telling yourself that you would never really do that because your are so OBSESSED with horses.
It's not luck or talent. it's a system.

Frequently asked questions
We have listed answers to our most commonly asked questions about training. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
How long are lessons?
Lessons are in a 1 hour time-slot. This includes your tacking & untacking time. You will have around 45 minutes of ride time.
I am too busy with lessons at my own farm & training horses, so I don't have time to travel for lessons. I am available to travel for clinics.
There is no set answer. This all depends on a lot of factors. We have to start off by working on balance & my core fundamentals. I have found even more advanced riders that come to me have to go right back to the very beginning because there some very important fundamentals that they never learned or mastered.
We are currently only accepting students 15 & up.
You will need to wear english type riding boots. You may have tall boots or paddock boots with half chaps. Boots need to have a 1/2" heel and smooth sole. You may wear riding breeches. Leggings are ok to wear if you do not have riding breeches. Riding gloves are highly recommended. Try to avoid any loose fitting clothing. Long hair will need to be secured in a hair tie. We do have helmets available for use if you do not have your own helmet.
Yes we do. If lessons are cancelled 24 hours or less we charge a cancellation fee, which is the full price of your lesson.

Amy is the best trainer I have seen in a very long time. She is always learning & trying to find better and kinder methods that are always fair to the horse. I don't know many people who can restart & retrain a fresh off the track Thoroughbred to where they are slow enough & quiet enough for an 8 year old child to ride! Any horse Amy works with will be happy, confident & look forward to their work.
Amy worked with one of my horses that had been deemed 'dangerous' by the rescue she came from, which was unknown to me when we adopted her. After a bad fall, which luckily was not any worse, I found Amy & contacted her for help. I am so glad that I did! The work Amy has done with Lula is amazing beyond words. This is a horse that trusts no one.
After Lula's session with Amy she laid down flat in the field for a few hours. This horse had never laid down before that. Lula had some major breakthroughs from the work Amy did with her. Amy truly is a natural & has a super-power! A true horse whisperer!
Amy's training techniques are very gentle & she looks to the horse to set the pace of training. Her sessions are fun and no pressure is put on the horse. Amy's methods of training bring out the playful & curiosity of the horses. I have seen 'dangerous' & disconnected horses become sweet & playful partners that are happy to work. I've seen Amy work with all types of horses from starting under saddle to retraining horses that rear up & flip over. Her knowledge, skills & techniques are the absolute best. Look at the horses she has trained & they will tell you everything you need to know.
