Riding is hard. Strides gives you the tools to become the rider your horse deserves.

You're passionate and dedicated. You put the time and effort into your riding. So why aren't you making any progress?

You start your ride hopeful and with good intentions but it quickly spirals into the same old problems. You get frustrated, your shoulders tense and you tighten your grip on the reins. Your horse  suddenly isn’t responding! By the end of your session, things are a mess. You hang your head, heart heavy, and head back to the barn wondering if you should just give up. 

You have big goals for your riding, but the truth is you’re not sure if you can reach them. Are you a good enough rider? Do you have what it takes? (psst- the answer is yes, I’m here to help you get there)

To be successful in your riding you need Education, Community, and Support.

And that’s exactly what you get when you join Strides with Amelia.

With Strides, achieving your goals is as easy as 1,2,3

#1 – 📚 Education – knowledge gives you the confidence and courage to stride toward your goals because you will have a solution to every problem.

#2 –🌍 Community – friends keep you accountable and inspired to keep going even on the hardest days. Support and celebrate overcoming obstacles together. 

#3 – 👫 Support – every horse is unique, you need individual help and experienced FEI coaches watching your riding to expedite your progress and save you frustration.

I’ve worked with thousands of students and these three pillars guarantee your success.

Ok, you've convinced me, I'm ready to make progress with my horse!

A quick note from Amelia:

“I would like to share with you quickly, why Strides is my all time favorite program. I’ve seen this program work for hundreds of riders and I 100% believe that with Strides you will achieve your goals.

Last week, during Strides office hours, one of my original Strides students shared a video of her first flying change! Noriko has been a dedicated student since I started Strides during the pandemic. She comes to the lectures, religiously practices the exercises, and submits her videos for review during office hours.  I’ve watched her month after month go from barley being able to balance her horse in the canter, to developing suppleness, engagement and collection, to riding her first flying change!

It’s so special to be able to help students with their horses on the other side of the world. Noriko is just one of many Strides students that I have seen make incredible transformations.  Over the past 3 years Strides has evolved and changed into an incredible program and community that provides everything you need to succeed with your horse. When I ask students what is their favorite part about Strides, they all say it’s the community! Strides offers a supportive and encouraging community that will encourage you to work consistently towards your goals!

I would love to have you join us in Strides and I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your horse.

Happy Riding”

Have a 'Lesson' with Amelia

Join the LIVE office hours and get individual feedback!

Submit YOUR videos for review and Amelia and Team will guide you! Here’s how “office hours” work:

1. Film yourself – submit a 3-5 minute video of your riding or groundwork

2. Join office hours on Zoom

3. Amelia will pull up your video, answer your questions, and give feedback!

Honestly, this might be better than a lesson! You get to actually see what you’re doing wrong. Plus you get the recording and can replay it over and over!

“I think my favourite part about Strides is Office Hours. In my first video, Amelia pointed out a specific aspect of how I collapsed by body and told me how to fix it. IMMEDIENTLY I was able to get all those pesky leg-yields to move over. It was just that one tip and it changed so much! I love that we can continue to get our videos reviewed month over month. Thank you Amelia!”

Strides with Amelia Student

This safe and inviting environment allows you to get feedback on you, and learn from other students’ videos. It does not need to be ‘perfect’ and there are no dumb questions. Even if you don’t submit a video, you can learn by watching others. It’s exciting to celebrate progress with the other students.

Can’t make the LIVE session? Don’t worry! We will send you the recording!

Timing and the Aids

Ever feel like your horse is 2 steps behind your aids? You probably need to learn better timing. Without proper timing, our horses both struggle to learn what we're asking of them, and it's physically impossible for them to respond timely. This month's workshop teach you how to improve your timing and better communicate to your horse.

Future Topics:

Connection, Half-halts, and more!

On the first of the month, Amelia will release the video exercises and worksheet for you to start practicing before the live zoom session. The LIVE theory lectures on zoom call are usually the first Tuesday of the month at 5pm PT. Office hours happen several times a month on specific Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays in morning, midday and evening sessions to accommodate a wide range of time zones and schedules. 

The live zoom session is always recorded and available for you to watch at your convenience – so don’t worry if you can’t make the LIVE call.


 I have seen rider after rider make significant improvements in their riding through online coaching. You’ll be amazed at what you can do. 

You will have lifetime access to all Strides content released during your membership period! This way if you’re horse goes lame or you get too busy, you can always go back and review the content at a later time. Not only that but you can cancel at any time with no penalties.

These workshops are 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, these workshops are for you!! Dressage is all about the basics, and the workshops give you new exercises (with a range of difficulty levels) to incorporate every month!

Yes, cancel at any time!! No fees, no problem!

But fair warning! If you leave you won’t be able to get back in until the next open enrollment period (we only have 1 open enrollment period a year!).

That’s ok! Not every month is for everyone. BUT the Motivation and Office Hour calls are not topic specific, so you can still get great value even if you’re not interested in the topic. 

Plus you can always go back into achieve topics and enjoy those!

Being sidelined from a personal injury or your horse is sore isn’t fun. 

You can’t opt out for a specific month (though you can cancel at any time), but you do get LIFETIME access to every month you are in Strides. Which means you can utilize the workshop once you’re back in the saddle.

We get it, you’re a busy person.

LIVE sessions is recorded for you (with the exception of a handful of guest lectures to protect their IP)! Recordings are processed and usually published within 24 hours of the LIVE session. 

Not sure if you are tech savvy enough to get a video online?

Don’t worry! We have a step by step process on how to upload a video, plus our team is available for tech support. 

We only open strides enrollment to the general public once a year! 

This means that if you don’t enroll now you’ll have to wait 12+ months!

No. This program is designed to offer options for both young and older horses. 

You're backed by a 15-day money back guarantee!

If you’re on the fence, or had other online training experiences that left you feeling skeptical, give this course a try. Within a few days, if it’s not for you, I’ll give you your money back – no questions asked.

Thousands of my students use these techniques to help their horses, and I know that this program will work for you.
