Meet Rocket Man

Our Amateur Equine & mascot Rocket Man is a 5 year old Canadian Warmblood gelding, imported into the USA as an unbroken two year old in 2014.  He’s spent the past two and a half years in training to become a competitive upper level, amateur dressage horse, and most recently has begun to enjoy his cross-training over fences.


Rocket’s journey, and the challenge and learning process of working with and riding a young horse, along with his owner’s dedication to learn and improve and to be the best owner/rider she could be, was the inspiration that spurred the launch of Amateur Equestrian… a place where amateur riders could learn, grow, connect, find the information they need, and share their struggles and triumphs with others on their path to being outstanding and accomplished equestrians.



Coming Soon:  Rocket Man’s Mission 

Soon you’ll be able to check in with our favorite “Amateur Equine” Rocket and his progress on his mission from an unbroken 2.5 year old, to his first shows at training level and follow him all the way up to the upper levels in dressage and hunter arenas!  You’ll be able to see updates, photos, and even live training, and show streams.  You’ll be able to stay up to date with his progress and even show your support and cheer him on his way!    Follow Rocket’s Journey Here
