Amanda Conti, Head Trainer
The head trainer at Tuscany Hollow
is Amanda Conti. She has been
involved in horses all of her life and
has been competing since she was
nine years old. She has ridden many
hunter/jumpers, dressage, fox
hunting, polo, and some western
pleasure and contest, but her
favorite discipline is eventing.
Amanda has introduced many
horses and students into the world
of eventing. She has competed in
many local, regional and national
shows through the CCI** level and
has ambitions of continuing in the
FEI circuit with her number one
horse, Griegermesiter (Greg, or The
Flying Ogre around the barn), along
with a string of other up and coming horses.
She brings her knowledge of horsemanship and riding to the program all while catering to her audience and maintaining a style of teaching that is fun and energetic, yet productive.
She graduated from the University of Louisville, where she earned an equine business degree in May 2010. In her time at U of L, she was involved in the polo team where she was the barn manager and played on the varsity team. She took classes such as Current Equine Issues, Equine Industry Overview, Equine Science, Equine Law, and many others which have furthered her knowledge of the animal and the industry.
A highlight of her riding career was earning the privilege of working for CCI**** rider, Laine Ashker, and Laine is still her coach currently.
