Manda works with each rider to break down riding concepts into small chunks helping the rider focus on asymmetries to achieve their horses maximum potential. Her teachings increase concentration, body awareness, and core strength, improving the riders overall position and communication with the horse. 

Any rider who wants to make themselves more "right" and wants to help their horse go more "right" is perfect for this clinic. Manda works with all riders from beginners to upper levels, and everything in between. Whether you are a trail rider, Jumper, pleasure, or Dressage rider (and anything else) you can benefit from Manda's eyes and teachings. 

Interesting Fact: Manda and Paulina where both raised under the same trainers/barn while riding as children in Austin, TX.

Daniel Stewart has been an equestrian for over thirty-five years and has coached riders all over the world for the past twenty-five. Combining his knowledge as an equestrian with a degree in physical education, he created an empowering and inspiring clinic series that helps riders develop equally strong minds and bodies. As the internationally acclaimed author of Pressure Proof Your Riding, Ride Right, and Fit and Focused in 52; he’s widely considered one of the worlds leading experts on equestrian sport psychology, athletics, and performance. He teaches clinics and seminars to thousands of riders each year including an annual summer clinic-tour that includes 50 clinics in more than 30 cities over a span of  60 days. He’s a sough-after keynote speaker, has published countless magazine articles, and is an equestrian sport psychology and rider fitness contributor for many other equestrian associations.

A father of two, when he’s not teaching his jumping, cross-country, and dressage clinics; he runs four-day Equestrian Athlete Training Camps at various athlete training centers around the country. He also produces weekly mental coaching and rider fitness videos for riders of all levels, ages, and disciplines.

Coach Stewart has been a successful international trainer and instructor for over 35 years. Between 1999 and 2007, he coached several US Equestrian Teams at World Championships, the World Equestrian Games, and the Olympics. He has taught at the Olympic Training Center for 15 years and in 2016 began to host multi-day Equestrian Athlete Camps at the incredible locations throughout the United States that could benefit every rider.

“I’ve always been an athlete first and an equestrian second," said Stewart. This identity, along with his degree in Sports Science, inspired the Equestrian Athlete Camps at the USOTC. Coach Stewart is proud to be offering riding athletes something that they may not otherwise have access to. He felt that the quality of the USOTC facilities themselves as well as the high caliber of coaching should be accessible to riders of all levels and ages. In fact, attendees range in age from just 10 years old to 66 years old.

“I make a massive effort to do my very best to respect and to instruct the riders in all of my clinics and Training Camps," said Coach Stewart. And we at Scissortail can't wait to learn from him, we welcome you to join us!
