What our students are saying:

"I was very unsure I could learn things on the computer which would actually physically improve my riding.  Astounding leaps forward in my riding are the result of studying Amelia's insightful, detailed lectures; watching her videos; and working on the exercises she provides. Thank you Amelia for your FIRST LEVEL COURSE (I have both), all the effort you put into all your teaching, sharing with the rest of us at such a reasonable cost while helping me to appreciate the life I share with my wonderful horse!" 

-Debi Stevens, 68 years old

"The most exciting thing is that I feel like it’s actually working! I feel like I am understanding more and more of this beautiful art we call Dressage! I am grateful to Amelia for sharing her knowledge and love of this amazing sport. Her love for the horses is obvious and her calm and straightforward approach makes learning from her fun, and I feel hopeful as my riding improves!"

-Lori-Anne, Dressage enthusiast

"I have had probably the best two weeks of riding ever.

Even my trainer commented that the rides I had with her were the best she has seen me ride. I am finding the lectures, videos, and worksheets very valuable. Thank you, Amelia!"

-Nora McCallum, Amateur

Kathy's horse Moses

"I came to dressage through eventing. As I was studying for my first training tests- my nemesis- serpentines- appeared. I’ve never done well with serpentines!

I am so grateful for Amelia's Training Level Course! I was able to watch video after video of all the training tests, print a diagram of how to correctly ride a 3 loop serpentine, and get to work.

Her instruction through the videos I am convinced is what enabled me to win all my training level tests- 1,2, and 3, and win reserve champion at our state ride offs. I also won amateur training high point and reserve high point (against professionals!) within our state dressage society.

Thanks Amelia!
