She worked at a 200 head horse farm and broke horses to ride, drive and all ground handling. She and her students have shown competitively at the A circuit National Shows as well as at the top of the Worlds Championship Horse Show in Kentucky. Amanda specializes in the American Saddlebred and has trained almost all breeds of horses. She has trained gaited breeds such as Morgan, Fox Trotters, Peruvian Passos, Icelandic Ponies and Tennessee Walkers as well as pleasure breeds such as Fresian, Quarter horses, Appaloosas, Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Welsh and Hackney ponies and many more.

Amanda is able to fine tune both horse and rider so that they become a perfect team. Her goal is to help people learn their horse and to train their horse to learn their rider.
