Amy Gau, trainer and professional rider at Christus Farm, Inc., brings her classic riding ability and outstanding skills to customers and their horses in a positive and rewarding training program for both horse and rider.
Amy competed successfully as a junior rider, starting in pony hunters up through the junior hunter, medal & equitation divisions, and junior jumpers. She rode with Geoff Teall in her last junior year, and worked for Geoff after graduating from the junior divisions. She returned to the Northwest and established her professional career at Christus Farm, Inc. training, teaching, coaching, and showing horses for customers and for the Farm. Amy and her sister, Melissa Brotz, qualified their riders for regional and national finals in the hunter and equitation rings in multiple years. While Melissa is now focused on her two young children, she still rides and teaches at the Farm as her schedule allows.
Amy successfully competes in the upper level jumper rings, with grand prix wins in the past several years, while bringing young horses along in both hunter and jumper divisions. She continues to ride, teach and train both horses and riders with the positive confidence building approach that has made her the outstanding rider and trainer she is today.
