Adria has been involved with horses for 30 years, teaching for 13 years, running a program for 11 years and most recently having a Pony Club Riding Center for the past 5 years. She started with Eventing in middle school and continued through High School. During College she rode on her college's IHSA team making it to Zone's in her senior year. After college, she bought her very first horse herself (Bren) and continued in eventing and eventually landing a teaching and managing job at a barn. She started a Pony Club Riding Center as a way to bring the Horsemanship and Management side of horses to her students who did not own horses. It has turned into one of the best decisions for her program. She is looking forward to helping all Centers and Clubs bring the best HM possible to their members.

Regional Instruction Coordinator

(503) 260-2695

Amy joined Pony Club in 2016 as an ACA with the startup of the first Pony Club Riding Center in Oregon. She and Adria Fix had a vision for their separate riding schools to bring all the knowledge of Pony Club to their students. As a child in the 70s and onward, Pony Club was not readily available in her area, but she always wished to join after reading about it in magazines and Thelwell books. She began hunter/jumper

riding lessons in 2nd grade at Quiet Valley Farm after her mom caught her constantly sneaking thru the fence at her grandparents' little farm trying to climb on the neighbors' equines. She was fortunate to have an instructor who taught the Pony Club way and didn't limit all the instruction to only hunter/jumpers but provided an extremely varied experience in different English riding disciplines.

        Amy graduated from Beaverton High School, attended Univ. of Portland with a BA in History and was a member of Phi Alpha Theta. Following in her father's footsteps, she graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School. Practicing law showed her that sitting behind a desk did not satisfy her ADHD-outdoorsy lifestyle. After helping manage a H/J program part-time while practicing law, she decided to trade her legal hat for a helmet and open her own riding school in 2015, and has never looked back.
