The newest trainer to join the Woodland Stallion Station, Amanda Jarose brings more than 25 years of passion for horses and nearly a decade of professional equestrian experience. Amanda started riding at age 5 and got her first horse at age 8 , and she began competing in All-Around horse shows right away. This ignited a focused drive to learn more about all aspects of training, and that eventually lead to Feather River College’s Equine Studies Program. While at FRC she brought young horses along in their education, developing an emphasis on harmony and a strong belief that training should be enjoyed by both the horse and rider, while they achieve their goals. After moving back to Bayside, California, fate would have it that Amanda was introduced to her first Gypsy Vanner, a small, solidly-built horse of cob conformation. She started focusing on dressage with her client’s amazing Gypsy Vanner gelding, fueling a desire to learn more, compete and share this great breed with everyone. In time, Amanda found her passion for teaching paired well with her own training program, and she became a sought after trainer at her local barn. Currently her amazing lesson horse Buckwheat is available for students of all ages who do not have their own horse to train on. Woodland Stallion Station is delighted to welcome Amanda Jarose!
