Amanda Martinez

Amanda Martinez lives in Elizabeth, Colorado with her husband Mauricio and three children, Reid (12), Maysen (10) and baby Liam, who was born July 6, 2016.  In their spare time they enjoy spending time outdoors, being silly, going on adventures and riding their own three horses.  They have a six-year-old quarter horse gelding named Bailey, a 16-year-old Haflinger mare named Dolly, and recently adopted a 3 year old BLM Mustang mare named Sephora.

Amanda was born and raised in Pennsylvania.  She received a BSW in Generalist Practice Social Work and went on to work in the healthcare field for over 10 years, both managing programs and carrying a caseload of her own.  

Amanda has experience training and showing horses, as well as teaching all levels of riders on both the ground and in the saddle.  She especially enjoys helping riders and horses strengthen their relationship through effective leadership, trust and communication.

In 2009, Amanda decided to combine her passion for horses and her love for people and became certified in equine assisted growth and learning.   She then went on to become certified by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship.  She is extremely passionate about helping both humans and horses build upon their strengths and looks forward to being a part of the many miracles that will happen as she continues on with Colorado Horsepower.
