"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 Newcomb Dressage works to develop a trusting and confident relationship between horse and rider. Using elements from both natural horsemanship and classical dressage, Amelia creates a holistic approach to dressage training that adapts to fit the needs of each individual horse and rider. Starting with basic groundwork and progressing to the Grand Prix, Amelia emphasizes trust, understanding, and relaxation for both horse and rider.

Amelia also enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge and experience with her students. “I have been blessed with many great teachers in my career and I hope to help each and every one of my students develop a connection and solid relationship with their horses.” A passionate dressage trainer, with a goal of reaching and helping a larger number of riders than one-on-one in-person training allows, Amelia has expanded her training program to the online community.



“I see online dressage training as the future. Not everyone is lucky enough to have an amazing dressage trainer in their backyard. Amelia’s Dressage Academy provides monthly workshops and in-depth masterclasses, which can provide a map for progress in your dressage journey!”
