Amy's Background and Philosophy

Based in North Carolina, USA, Amy Skinner works with all breeds and disciplines, focusing on promoting softness, balance, and relaxation. Working with each student as an individual, she provides a relaxed atmosphere, and meets each horse and rider where they are. She believes that any horse can improve given enough time and understanding, and that force and dominance play no part in building a strong relationship. With a blend of traditional vaquero horsemanship and classical dressage principles, she works with the horse’s mind to develop confidence, and an understanding of biomechanics develops correct and sound movement.

Amy's philosophy incorporates 3 key elements: Balance, Trust & Respect with each geared towards making the horse more beautiful, more free and more comfortable alongside bettering your partnership. Her work speaks for itself and is non-compromising when it comes to equine welfare - she has dedicated much of her life to bettering herself and her skills in the name of a correct and classical approach with equine welfare at the forefront.

The format for Amy's clinic is a group of 10 riders. The group is split into 2 with each group of 5 doing a morning and afternoon session. 

Riders are able to work on the ground and in the saddle. All levels of experience welcome. Riding is not essential if your horse is not yet started or not being ridden for other reasons. 

The Clinic fee is $799 per rider.

Amy is experienced and wise beyond her years. She can combine horsemanship, dressage and feel to provide you with the best approach to understand and improve your relationship with your horse. We’ve worked with her in various capacities; riding lessons, participated in her horsemanship clinics, sent our Lusitano to her for a month of summer boot camp (she also provided riding lessons) and I can’t say enough how wonderful every interaction has been. She has a great affinity for teaching and explanation and does so with kindness and softness, using both evidence based methods and her vast experience with horses of all backgrounds. All of that and she is an amazing writer and so fun to work with. We miss her in Michigan. My horse probably misses her most of all.


Spectators are welcome during the clinic. The spectator fee is $80 per day or $150 to attend both days. Seats are limited so book in early to avoid disappointment. Book your tickets by clicking the links below.
