Horse Training; Amanda’s Bachelor´s degree in Physiology helps her assess horses from a physiological perspective. Her Master´s Degree in Forensic Science (which requires superior attention to detail), her ever-expanding knowledge of Applied Behavioral Analysis, learning theory, the neurophysiology of learning, equine behaviour, equine behaviour rehabilitation, the common illnesses in horses and extensive experience of a Fear Free training approach with animals have all combined her to develop an expert eye for finding the right training plans for your horses training, knowing when to refer to another equine expert (body worker, vet, physio etc) and seeing superior balance and cadence in horses.
Specialising in problem horse behaviours Amanda has had her skills tested to the limits and has managed to help many more horses as a result.
Amanda knows how to teach good balance and cadence through positive training that engages the horse creating a willing and enthusiastic partnership. Applying her dedication to understanding the detail and ability to search for the truth at every level of horsemanship she brings you the best training possible.
“What makes Amanda particularly special is far more than can be said on paper. She can help and inspire you, build confidence in horse and handler and so much more. Whether you’ve been clicker training horses for years or it’s your first tentative day clicker training your horse Amanda is able to help you advance your training.” Alexandra Kurland
