Bobby Lindsley


AMIT has over a dozen experienced instructors. Most students will begin with one of our Junior Instructors in a private lesson and will work into a group lesson once he or she is capable of handling the horse independently (i.e. basic steering, stopping, walk/trot).

Effective on January 1, 2018, five of our instructors are promoted. Emma Crim, Savannah Duke, and Ashley Edwards will be Assistant Instructors. Leslie Allen and Brianna Hampton will be Senior Instructors. Congratulations!
