Certified Instructor and Trainer: Amber Luce
Riding is a life long journey. It takes years to progress a horse properly and it takes decades to learn how to ride effectively in all circumstances. If you are determined to follow your passion and feel from all aspects of life, you will be a great equestrian!
My name is Amber Luce, and I live my dream. I am so blessed to be able to share my knowledge with all who would like to learn.
I have worked for and been influenced by many different trainers and instructors, ridden with some of the worlds greatest riders, and attended clinics with the following: Gale Lampe, Jennifer Smith of Marshland Equestrain Center, Jennifer Smith of Luce Reins Stables, Laura Ward, Karen Pautz, David O-Connor, Caryn Bronowski, Kristal Dilley, Sophie Poschin, Donna Anderson, April Brock, Tammy Masters, Jonathan Elliot, Jim Briggs, Vivian Schmitd, and Jon Ensign to name a few. I have always strived to learn as much as I can from each person that I meet in the horse industry. Education never stops.
I have been a part of the Equine Science major at William Woods University where I rode Saddle Seat and Dressage. I have graduated with my Riding Master III from Meredith Manor International Equestrian Center, where I rode Hunter/Jumpers and Dressage. I have successfully trained and competed in Western Pleasure, 3-day Eventing, Saddle Seat, Dressage, Hunters, Jumpers and have experience with Reining. I teach to all disciplines, and I have ridden all disciplines. My knowledge theory and background have proven to be universal no matter what type of horse or discipline my students or I choose to ride. I teach equestrians to ride effectively and confidently which produces finessed harmony between horse and rider.
