What our students are saying:

About Your Coach

Hi! I’m Amelia Newcomb, a Grand Prix rider and trainer based in Southern California. I have trained multiple horses and riders to the Grand Prix level and am currently a member of the USEF Development Program and recipient of the Carol Lavell Advanced Training Grant with my horse Harvard. Β I am passionate about teaching riders of all levels and helping you “learn to love your ride.

With well over 10,000 hours in the saddle and training thousands of horses and riders, “roundness” is one of the most common student frustrations I run into.

Riding your horse round and connected from back to front is not only easier and more enjoyable for the rider, but is also healthier for your horse’s physical and mental state. Learning how to teach your horse how to use their body properly and go round is an essential skill to have.

This is A LOT to think about when you are riding which is why I have designed this course so that you can study and teach your horse when you are not the saddle. I’ve taught thousands of horses and riders to go round and develop their topline by using this program, and I KNOW it will work for you.

The challenge is not for you if...

Are you ready to get your horse supple, soft, and using their topline in just 30 days.


The challenge ‘officially’ starts on September 16th 2022, but as soon as you purchase you get lifetime access and can get started!And the sooner you start the more of a leg up you’ll have on the competition!The Challenge ends on Sunday October 16th 2022 at 11:55pm PST.

You will have lifetime access to the material! While the competition itself and the guided live feedback is only during the competition period (ending Oct 16th 2022). You will always have access to the material to keep working away at it!Β 

We have cash prizes totaling over $2,150 USD and prizes from:
Kastel DenmarkΒ 

-Solo Bridles
-Lumiere Equestrian
-Saltaire Equestrian
and of course, Amelia Newcomb Dressage Swag

No. This program is perfect for teaching a young horse to accept the bit and it will also help to get an older horse rounder and softer.Β 

Consistency is key to getting a big transformation. If you only ride a lesson horse 1-2 times a week you will still see results by joining this challenge. But the more you work with your horse the better they will be, we recommend 4-5 times a week. Remember though, this is quality over quantity. Every session doesn’t have to be a long one (sometimes it’s only 10 min!) and it’s important to listen to your horse.

This course is designed for horses and riders of ALL levels. Whether you are a beginner Dressage rider just learning about Dressage, or you are an FEI rider, suppleness, thoroughness and connection is something you’re always working on. 

This challenge is designed for riders and trainers of all levels. Whether you are just starting out or riding FEI, you can still be competitive in this challenge. Winners are selected based on how much they have improved compared to the start of the challenge. Not who is the best overall.

To put it simply: Who ever improves the most, WINS! Our panel of judges reviews and compares your beginning and end videos and uses the following categories to judge: Groundwork, Gaits, Impulsion, Submission, Rider Position & Seat, and Participation.

You should still join! While you won’t be eligible for prizes, this challenge is chalk full of valuable information that you have LIFETIME access to! So you can go through it whenever you want -and at whatever pace you want.

Yes! From the time you join the challenge, to the end of the 30 days (October 16th 2022), you get access to myself and my team to ask questions, get advice, additional mini lectures, support sessions, and more!

  • A sound and healthy horse
  • ASTM approved riding helmet
  • Bridle
  • Snaffle bit
  • Reins
  • Optional: Side reins, rope halter, flag

No.  You don’t need to be on Facebook.  You can download all of the educational content to your phone. If you have a question or want to join a LIVE session we recommend joining Facebook! This will allow you to ask questions, share videos, successes, and more! It’s also where we’ll be posting supporting videos and mini lectures. If you don’t have facebook, I would suggest joining just for this challenge.

We want everything to be fair for everyone. A few days before your β€˜before’ videos are due, you will get a poster that you film to β€˜date’ the start of the video. The β€˜after’ poster will be released near the end of the challenge.

It’s up to you and what you’re looking for! Strides is fantastic and is designed to offer you a wealth of knowledge over multiple topics and provide support over a longer period of time.

30 Days to Round is a Challenge, so if you’re competitive (either with yourself or others) and keen on the prizes- this is a great program for you. This Challenge also offers multiple Q&As and LIVE events throughout each week, so you get more time β€˜with’ me and the team for the challenge period.Β
