Head Coach and Barn Manager

Amanda Dunklin-Hamilton is Elmcrest's Head Coach and Barn Manager

Amanda has been fortunate enough to spend her life with horses. She was born into a family owned school. She spent 15 years as a Canadian Pony Club member and tested up to the "B" level which required an intense testing of rider and horsemanship skills. Amanda began her own equestrian school in 2009 called Adda'Go Equestrain. She built a solid clientele of wonderful people and horses. When the opportunity to become part of the Elmcrest team arose, she was sure to take it. She will continue to offer complete education to her riders both in and out of the tack. She takes great pride and honour in being a part of riders' equestrian journeys.

"I will always give my best. Be it formulating your horse's care plan, guiding you through training, showing or in any teaching moment- I will always give you my best. I in return, expect the same from you. We aren't all going to young riders or in the Olympics. We all can however gain the immense amount of learning the horse sport can offer us. I know this sport creates better athletes and most importantly, better people."

Horses are able to teach us the most important lessons in life if we choose to listen
