There is so much packed into this monthly subscription-based membership, we are sure you will be thrilled with it once you join! If not, you can cancel your membership within 15 days with our money back guarantee, no questions asked.

Dressage riding is very much a process and requires consistent training to make progress. Strides with Amelia is a way to stay motivated and take strides to achieve your goals. I want to get you the results that you want in your riding and the relationship you dream of with your horse. Education, consistency, and a support network are what you need to accomplish it and I’ve worked hard when creating Strides to ensure you get all of that.

Amelia Newcomb

As a dressage trainer, my goal is to make good training accessible to everyone who is interested in learning. I want to help YOU "learn, to love your ride!"

~ Amelia

Amelia is passionate about sharing her knowledge of riding, horses and dressage. She has trained numerous horses and riders from Training Levels to the Grand Prix. Dressage is hard and she loves the challenge of educating riders and horses. Amelia has a clear understanding of rider position, how to ride a horse and train the movements.

Unlike many top riders, Amelia was NOT a natural talent and fell off so many times in her early riding days that her instructor nearly told her parents she should quit riding! Perseverance, love of all horses, and determination, not innate talent, is what made Amelia into the rider and horsewoman that she is today. Amelia is incredibly grateful to all the teachers who have helped her on this journey especially Joh Hinnemann, Christine Traurig, Sue Martin, Larry Fleming and Julie Barringer-Richers and of course the thousands of horses she's ridden including Geronimo, Trump, and Harvey.

Amelia enjoys helping each individual student and horse find harmony, trust, and balance. "Nothing is more rewarding than watching one of my students glide harmoniously around the ring together with their horse! This makes my heart soar!" says Amelia.

Amelia hopes to one day represent the U.S.A. on the international circuit and loves training her three horses, Harvey, Kensington and Luigi in Los Angeles, CA. Amelia has her USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, She is the winner of the prestigious USEF Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize and a member of the USEF Dressage Development Program.

What if I am unhappy with the lecture?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with the workshop, contact us in the first 15 days and we will give you a full refund.
What if I am a beginner rider just starting out?
These workshops are designed for riders and trainers of all levels. Whether you are just starting out or riding FEI, the workshops will give you specific exercises to practice and teach you the theory of dressage. Even I learn something new each month as I create these presentations!
When will I be charged?

These workshops are an amazing opportunity to enhance your training program. Whether you are in full training with a trainer or working mostly alone, these workshops will help you to understand the theory of Dressage and help you analyze the specific issues you are having with your horse and how to best approach them. Often it is difficult when you are in a live lesson to really understand the theory of Dressage training and to analyze the situation and problems you are having!!


Hope to see you in Strides!!
