The Dressage Groundwork Masterclass


You can solve ALL your problems from the ground - I'm not kidding!

"When I first started training, I got ALL the difficult horses that no one else could ride or handle. I don’t think anyone likes feeling out of control with a horse. Horses are 8-10 times as massive as we are and no one wants to get hurt!

Groundwork has saved my life more than once AND helped me train thousands of horses! Get ready to learn my secret groundwork formulas when you enroll in the Dressage Groundwork Masterclass.” -Amelia

By the end of this program, you will have mastered:

  • How to read your horse. Horse body language, safety, and respect.
  • Control your horse's body and mind. Get control of the Poll, Neck, and Hind-end.
  • Desensitize your horse. Teach your horse how to handle their fear, stress, and anxiety when bathing, trailer loading, deworming, and more.
  • Train Dressage from the Ground. It is easier and more effective to teach your horse the aids from the ground.
  • Lunge Correctly. Get your horse on the aids, accepting the contact, and using their top-line.
  • Transform your ride. Honestly- it's like magic. Teach it to your horse on the ground and when you get on it's like they already know it.
  • Train the Piaffe on the Ground. This complicated exercise can and MUST be taught from the ground.
  • Long-Lining. Solve your connection issues, get your horse engaged and using their top-line without the weight of a rider.
  • Dressage Groundwork Test. Put your new skills to the test with our Dressage Groundwork Test.

This is NOT just a program about working on the ground. This is an opportunity to transform how you interact with and train your horse. This program will transform how you interact with and train your horse. You will feel more confident, in control and able to communicate effectively with your horse on the ground and in the saddle.

Your Instructor

Amelia Newcomb
Amelia Newcomb

As a dressage trainer, my goal is to make good training accessible to everyone who is interested in learning. I want to help YOU "learn, to love your ride!"

Amelia is passionate about sharing her knowledge of riding, horses and dressage. She has trained numerous horses and riders from Training Levels to the Grand Prix. Dressage is hard and she loves the challenge of educating riders and horses. Amelia has a clear understanding of rider position, how to ride a horse and train the movements.

Unlike many top riders, Amelia was NOT a natural talent and fell off so many times in her early riding days that her instructor nearly told her parents she should quit riding! Perseverance, love of all horses, and determination, not innate talent, is what made Amelia into the rider and horsewoman that she is today. Amelia is incredibly grateful to all the teachers who have helped her on this journey especially Joh Hinnemann, Christine Traurig, Sue Martin, Larry Fleming and Julie Barringer-Richers and of course the thousands of horses she's ridden including Geronimo, Trump, and Harvey.

Amelia enjoys helping each individual student and horse find harmony, trust, and balance. "Nothing is more rewarding than watching one of my students glide harmoniously around the ring together with their horse! This makes my heart soar!" says Amelia.

Amelia hopes to one day represent the U.S.A. on the international circuit and loves training her three horses, Harvey, Kensington and Luigi in Los Angeles, CA. Amelia has her USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, She is the winner of the prestigious USEF Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize and a member of the USEF Dressage Development Program.
