Why Liberty?

Liberty is a brand new and growing discipline that allows you to build an everlasting bond with your horse or horses. There's an incredible rewarding feeling when you learn to control the movements of a thousand pound animal, the relationship you gain, is irreplaceable. Liberty, as a discipline is unique since all horse breeds, body types, ages and sizes can compete.


Intimidated? Don't be, there are several patterns and classes that you perform entirely on the lead rope with halter. Find out more about liberty at the International Liberty Horse Association>.


Meet the Manager

Amanda Sommer

Amanda Sommer runs and operates her own training business Sommer Strides Horse Training LLC and has been training horses for over 15 years. She began her liberty journey back in 2014 when she entered to compete in the American Horsewoman's Challenge. This training competition included three phases Cowboy Dressage, Extreme Trail and Liberty. With no previous liberty training experience, she had no choice but to learn and try. Competing with a 5 year old wild mustang, Amanda managed to place 5th in the liberty class and 7th overall out of 50 trainers from around the country. 

Besides the American Horsewoman's Challenge, Amanda has competed in seven Mustang Makeovers throughout the years and truly has a passion for the mustang. Her current liberty partner is a small little mustang named Zacchaeus.

Amanda has focused mainly on showing Western Dressage, competing at the WDAA World Show twice with her mustangs Pioneer and Zion and placing in the top 10 with each of them. 

In 2019, the focus of competition was shifted as Amanda became a new mom to her little boy with a little girl on the way this spring. With the new role of "mom-hood", liberty training has become an easier option and she's enjoying exploring this new discipline.
