Kicking off the start of fall with the back-to-school spirit!
The leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter, and kids are now back in school! Personally, this time of year always fills me with a refreshing sense of renewal. Kind of like the feeling of New Years; I guess because it’s the start of a new school year. If you’re new here, my mission is “Dressage for All.” I am dedicated to helping you build positive, confident communication with your horse through accessible education, community, and support.
This fall, I’ve got a few things on the go and I am also busy working on the schedule and content for next year, with new videos, new courses, and more! -Amelia

- Get Dressed up with Kastel!
I’m not one for playing dress up or wearing fancy clothes- but Kastel has been keeping me stylish for years! It’s easy to style their sun shirts with a neutral pant and bomb- I have a statement outfit. And you can too! Use the code ‘AMELIA10’ to get 10% off your purchase on their website. Full disclaimer, I do get a bit of a kickback if you use my code, but it’s a great way to support me, my production of free educational resources, and my mission of dressage for all (while also looking oh so stylish!). Check them out here.

- Lifelong learning continues!
As you know, I’m a big advocate of lifelong learning. This is why I’m excited that Kensington and I have been selected to participate in the Ingrid Klimke Masterclass at Galway Downs, Temecula, CA this December. The opportunity to ride with such a talented Horsewoman was too much to pass up and I’m looking forward to hearing her feedback for us!
