Amanda Ledford offers horse training, riding lessons, and clinics at Allison Creek Farm. She can come to your farm to work with you and your horse, or your horse can board for training at Allison Creek Farm.
Her horsemanship style training focuses on creating healthy communication between horses and their riders. Availability is limited to 2 training horses at a time to ensure that she can give them the correct amount of time and attention.

The majority of her lessons are working with beginner and intermediate riders. She excels at helping riders develop confidence and learning the feel of the horse while focusing on safety and communication. Showing riders the tools available for communication – hands, legs, seat, and voice.
Amanda’s patient and compassion for horses comes from her greatest influence, her mother Stacey. Amanda and Stacey share a commitment to safe, happy, and healthy partnerships between rider and horse.
Amanda started training her personal horses in high school and professionally in 2017. She is a lifelong student of all things horses, currently studying foundational dressage and the bio-mechanics of horse riding. In the past she has studied natural horsemanship, as well as jumping, eventing, and the western events of cutting and reining. She recently purchased two Oldenburg broodmares and is looking forward to continuing the tradition of horse breeding at Allison Creek Farm.
The typical horse loving kid, she would rush to the barn after school (and sometimes sneak out before school for early morning rides)… a characteristic that continues to this day, motivating her to head to “work” earlier and earlier in the mornings. Lady, her childhood companion, was instrumental in teaching Amanda patience and humility as the two covered the forested Georgia countryside with hoof-prints. All of the horses in Amanda’s life have, and continue to, educate her about the grace, poise, and perseverance required for working with horses.
Look for Amanda, her students, and horses at pony club, Kel-mac, GDCTA, 4H and other local horsey events in 2018.
In addition to working on the farm with her mother, Amanda runs AC Farm Services with her father – Mike McCoy. It is a business that serves the needs of the local farm owner, from pasture restoration, metal gate fabrication, to horse trailer maintenance and repair, and more. Learn more at ACFarmServices.com.
