My Liberty Journey

Amanda began her liberty journey back in 2014 when she entered to compete in the American Horsewoman's Challenge. This training competition included three phases Cowboy Dressage, Extreme Trail and Liberty. With no previous liberty training experience, she had no choice but to learn and try. Competing with a 5 year old wild mustang, Amanda managed to place 5th in the liberty class and 7th overall out of 50 trainers from around the country.

Besides the American Horsewoman's Challenge, Amanda has competed in seven Mustang Makeovers throughout the years and truly has a passion for the mustang. Her current liberty partner is a small little mustang named Zacchaeus.

In 2019, the focus of competition was shifted as Amanda became a new mom to her little boy with a little girl on the way this spring. With the new role of "mom-hood", liberty training has become an easier option and she's enjoying exploring this new discipline.
