"I love the way Amy runs the barn. You can really see how much she truly cares about her horses and the horses in her care. I would definitely recommend STARS Sporthorses to anyone looking for a good place to board their horse or looking for training."

"Amy is a very talented trainer as well as a riding instructor. She can work with a horse in a gentle and kind and natural way to bring out the best in them. Our horse has improved more than I thought she could and my 11 year old daughter has learned so much from Amy. She is a horse whisperer and you and your horse will be fortunate to work with her."
- Regina Schwall
"The level of instruction is unique and exceptional for all levels of experience. Amy is an excellent instructor, focusing on balance and overall safety. My daughter said she had a lot of fun! Amy was successful in overcoming the anxiety that my daughter was feeling and can't wait for the next lesson."

"Amy helped quarantine and train my half Arabian mare after she had been in a kill pen in Cleveland. Amy made sure to get my mare, Diva, into the best possible physical shape, including her weight, hooves, and teeth, that she could be. PLUS, Amy trained her and got her comfortable enough that you would never know she's a rescue. Now Diva has some of the best manners and training of any horse I've seen. Thank you, Amy!

"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!

"If you want a no-nonsense trainer who will push you to your full potential, Amy is the one to use. She uses correct training methods that develop both horse and rider. No gimmicks or shutcuts, just quality instruction.
