Andi Oxier (Snow)– Equine Manager, Trainer and Horse Show Manager
Andi is an ARICP/ARIA Level II Certified Instructor (Hunt Seat), with over 25 years of experience riding, training, coaching and competing. She has successfully shown and coached in the equitation/medals and hunters in all levels from local to “A” shows, including Vermont Summer Festival and Fieldstone. Students have won year end awards and top placings in the NH, Maine, and MHC Medal Finals in divisions ranging from Leadline and Walk Trot through the Junior and Adult Medals. Andi teaches all ages of riders at experience levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Her program focuses on solid basics and flatwork incorporated into work over fences, with an emphasis on excellent horsemanship and horse management. Students are taught not only the riding aids and their application, but also equine behavior and how to treat each horse as an individual in order to maximize rideability and performance.
Training programs for horses/ponies include teaching groundwork and under saddle basics through more advanced flatwork, jumping basics and course work, and competition. Training board, both long and short term, is available upon consultation.
Andi attends a variety of horse shows with her students throughout the spring, summer and fall, and also competes with her own horse(s) in the green and open hunters.
