Meet Our Barn Manager & Trainer


Growing up in Western Massachusetts Amy competed in Open, 4-H, Appaloosa and Hunter show series. Showing everything from western pleasure, to hunter-over-fences, participating in hunter paces, gymkhana events, cross-country schoolings, and drill team.

After winning three state championships at 12, 13, and 14, she began coaching local 4-H students on their horses. In 2003 she was elected into the Massachusetts State 4-H horse judging team where she competed at a national level, achieving 43rd in the nation and one of the youngest competitors in her division.

In 2004, Amy became an advanced team member of the Wiliston School ISEA team and in 2005 began her college education and completed Massachusetts riding instructor requirements. Studies included barn management and horse health care education from leading professionals Carolyn Fuller, Dr. John Cowley D.V.M., and leading dressage rider Chris Hickey

In 2006, Amy moved to Rochester to continue her education and begin her career at Sleeman Stables by running the stable’s summer programs; which doubled in popularity and registrations in just two years. She began teaching and taking on barn management, while finishing her associates degree in business. In 2008 Amy took over the business as the head trainer and barn manager with the new stable operation as TrueNorth Equestrian Center.

Focusing her teaching on student confidence-building and balanced and correct riding that encompasses: hunters, introductory dressage, XC schooling, stadium jumping, pleasure riding, hunter pacing, gymkana, trail riding, and ground work, Amy is able to provide her students many experiences to continue horsemanship education through reasonable challenges. She is a firm believer that happy, healthy horses and riders make the best teams! Amy’s pride in her work is clearly demonstrated in the relationship between herself and each of her horses, as well as her students.
