Amy lives in Centennial, CO. She is a native Denverite that has been around horses her entire life spending the early years riding Western and switching to English around age 10 riding and completing as a Hunter/Jumper. She is now learning Dressage and the inter-workings of rider/horse bio-mechanics and how they work together or against each other for desired results.
She has a BFA in technical theatre as a theatrical carpenter/rigger/welder. In 2011 she split her time between the theatre world and horse world when she joined a therapeutic riding program in Littleton as a volunteer. In 2012 she became an instructor with that program. In 2014 she left the theatre world to focus on therapeutic riding adding to her student roster and becoming the Volunteer Coordinator for that program as well.
In 2016, she realized her teaching had taken a natural evolution over the years from focusing just on riding skills to a more holistic approach. She was no longer just teaching the basics of riding but was tailoring that riding to help more with the secondary benefits such as decision making, problem solving, confidence, hand eye coordination, balance, and more. This led her to go back to school where she is currently working towards becoming an Occupational Therapist with the end goal of being able to hold both therapeutic riding lessons as well as hippo-therapy lessons depending on the rider's wants/needs.
I am a Registered Level PATH instructor and teach lessons at Colorado HorsePower on Saturdays. I have over fifteen years of experience as volunteer, exercise rider, and instructor in therapeutic riding and have worked in programs all over the country, but am so happy to be in beautiful Colorado where we can ride outside almost year around! I live in Sedalia with my husband Ross and baby boy Wesley and our Border Collie Barley. During the week, I work as a sustainability consultant.
