Amy Skinner - Straightening the Crooked Horse

Uncategorized May 19, 2020

Meet Tonka, a quarter horse who has had some issues staying sound, and when under saddle, was crooked and hard to direct. Learn how to bring a crooked horse into alignment, and how this can improve their soundness and make them more comfortable.

"Because of the Horse..."

I have embarked on a journey to self improvement, and have challenged myself to expand my comfort zone repeatedly.


I am an avid student of the horse and have spent my whole life looking for and developing quality horsemanship.  I have been riding since I was 6 years old, taking lessons whenever and wherever I was able while I moved around with my military family. I have ridden with many incredible horsemen and women, but my biggest influencers have been Theresa Doherty, a student of Egon von Neindorff, and Brent Graef. 


My training program works for all breeds and disciplines and focuses on promoting softness, balance, and relaxation. With classical dressage basics and an emphasis on lightness and relaxation, I believe that any horse can improve given enough time and understanding. Working with the horse’s mind develops confidence, and an understanding of biomechanics develops correct and sound movement.
