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

disciplines including 

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, Griegermeister (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.
