Learn to ride in balance & harmony

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.

My teaching system has been PROVEN to help riders of all skill levels, any fitness level & whether they have a natural TALENT or not. You do not have to be super talented to become the CONFIDENT & secure rider that you dream of becoming!

You can progress through the levels on ANY horse. Yes, the horse you have right now! There's no need to sell your horse that you LOVE & get a more expensive horse.

No more FRUSTRATION. No more CONFUSION. You can throw away all the crazy bits, martingales, draw reins & other gadgets. They might make great decorations or dog leashes. With my system you do not need stronger bits or gadgets.

My system is EASY to follow & SIMPLE to implement. You will wish you had found me much sooner, but that's ok. I am here now & READY to help you become the CONFIDENT & SECURE rider that you have always DREAMED of becoming!

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.

What disciplines do you teach?

I teach the classical style of riding. Classical dressage, western dressage, showjumping, hunters & eventing. However, I have worked with riders of ALL disciplines & horses of many different breeds...including gaited horses. ALL horses & riders can benefit from learning the core fundamentals of groundwork & how we can make our horse's job easier as well as promote soundness.

Do you have lesson horses?

We have a wonderful group of horses that I use for lessons. They are various skill levels & are very safe & well-trained.

Can I bring my own horse?

Yes, you may haul your own horse in for lessons. Current negative Coggins & vaccinations within 6 months.

Do you travel for lessons?

I frequently teach at a farm in Lookout Mountain, GA & there is availability to haul in for lessons at that facility. I am able to travel for individual lessons or we can even schedule a full day of lessons with several riders. I am able to teach group lessons for advanced students jumping.

How long until I can start jumping?

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.

What ages do you teach?

We are currently only accepting students 15 & up.

What do I need to wear to my lesson?

For English:

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.

For Western:

You can wear a western style boot with a 1/2 inch heel. The boot needs to have a smooth sole. Jeans or any type of pants that are comfortable for you are ok. Try to avoid loose-fitting clothing. Long hair will need to be secured with a hair tie. We do have helmets available for use if you do not own a helmet.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

Yes we do. Lessons may be cancelled in the event of a legitimate emergency. We are able to offer certain days for makeup lessons. You will need to contact us for make-up dates/times. We allow 1 make-up lesson per month. These cannot be rolled over to the next month.


Amy is a knowledgeable and patient instructor and trainer. She takes excellent care of her horses, and she has the safest lesson horses in the area. She puts the horses’ needs first and goes above and beyond for them! We also bought a horse from Amy, and she is exactly as described and an absolute joy!


Emily McGauley

I can’t say enough good things about Amy. She always has the best interest of the horse in mind and trains in a way that works on the horse as a whole, without using gadgets to provide “quick fixes” to issues that end up coming back. She has a solid understanding of biomechanics and uses that to provide a foundation for the rider to then build on, and during lessons, works with the horse and rider as a team. I am a better rider because of what I’ve been able to learn through Amy and I highly recommend her for lessons and training!


Giovana Melo

Amy has a very gentle and effective approach to teaching riding. My daughter has been riding with Amy the past 3 years, and I have seen my daughter improve her balance and her confidence in the saddle. All the horses at Amy's farm are well cared for and well trained.
