About Your Coaches

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.  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, I have come to believe that the single most effective way for YOU to improve your Dressage is to focus on your position!

You MUST find and maintain the correct alignment in the saddle, you must be straight and symmetrical in ALL of your body parts, AND you must learn to use your aids independently!


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 focus on your position when you are not the saddle. In this masterclass, I’ve worked with a physical therapist to design specific unmounted exercises for you to do out of the saddle so that when you get on, you have the correct muscles fired up and active!


Let’s do this! I KNOW that with the right tools AND hard work and dedication, YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR POSITION!

Stephanie graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy and Bachelors of Health Science from Loma Linda University in 2008. Because she is also an equestrian she has been able to combine her passion for fitness, health, and alignment with her passion for horses.

​​Stephanie attended the USEF HSSM clinic given by Andy Thomas in October 2017. Stephanie is now a part of a small group of physical therapists recognized by the USEF to treat equestrian athletes. She is currently contracted with USEF to work with all the riders who are invited to be a part of the developing dressage clinics.

“My hope is to be able to help riders of any level or ability improve their body awareness, balance, and strength. I want to help them be the best team they possibly could be with their horse and to achieve their goals both on and off their beloved companions!”

Are you ready to Transform yourself in to a more confident, secure, and effective rider?
