Program Director & PATH Intl. Advanced Instructor
Amanda "Mandy" grew up in the Texas horse world. She was a familiar face with her thoroughbred, Mac, around the NTHJA horse show circuit. She and Mac moved on to St. Andrews Presbyterian College where Mandy rode on their equestrian team. Upon completing all therapeutic riding classes offered at St. Andrews she transferred and graduated from Texas Woman's University. She received her degree in Education, certified to teach Secondary and Special Education. Mandy came to realize her true calling was in the arena instead of a classroom.
Stable Strides Farm was born! Her concept was to develop a program where individuals with special needs could have a positive place to learn and grow into talented, competitive equestrians. Stable Strides Farm is in it's 16th year as one of the premiere therapeutic riding programs in Texas. In her (very little) spare time, Mandy and her children continue to compete and stay on the cutting edge of the horse show world.
"I hope to be doing this for a long time. This is something that I believe in and hope to always be a part of. I learn so much form each rider. I love watching our riders shine!" Mandy Cleveland
