Judge of Horse Transporter of the Year
Amanda has worked with horses for over forty years, and manages the family farm and busy livery stables outside Beverley in East Yorkshire where she is also involved with the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of animals.
One of the first graduates from the Northern Racing College, she has been both an accredited re-trainer of racehorses and an Assistant Trainer. A specialist with veteran horse, she has also shown in-hand at the highest level, taking her 31 year-old ‘Toffee Boy’ to Olympia in 2011 – a horse that she also bred. She set up her own equine transport business in 2009 with private and corporate clients including RSPCA, World Horse Welfare, The Donkey Sanctuary, Hull City Council and PRP Rescue and is the recommended transporter for Rainbow Equine Hospital in Malton.
Amanda was voted Horse Transporter of the Year in 2021 in the inaugural Equine Business Awards and was a Regional Finalist in the Countryside Alliance Awards in the Rural Enterprise category in 2019.
She lives in Yorkshire with her daughter Savannah, who is an Assistant Trainer, and her fiancé Dillon who is a photographer, and with more than 30 cats.
