Amelia is one of the few trainers who can take an unbroken young horse and train it all the way up to the Grand Prix. Amelia offers a unique combination of natural horsemanship and classical dressage training to create a trusting and confident relationship between horse and rider. She has a solid background in starting young horses and in developing “problem” horses into competitive dressage horses. The focus with the horses is always to develop both their confidence and respect for the rider. Amelia has successfully competed numerous “problem” horses and horses that she started herself under saddle through the Grand Prix. Amelia is also passionate about teaching and helping her students progress with their horses. Amelia also specializes in the piaffe and passage training and starts the horses with the work in hand. She values her education and frequently clinics with Juan Matute, Morten Thompsen, and Christine Traurig. Amelia hopes to one day represent the U.S. at the Olympics. She is located at Spirit Equestrian Center in Somis, CA and Amelia is willing to travel to your facility!
