Amanda DuPont - Owner/Trainer

Having grown up on the family breeding farm Amanda has been involved with Morgan horses her entire life. Entering the show ring at age 2 as a lead line rider, she has been showing ever since. Competing in almost all of the offered divisions as a junior exhibitor, the high lights of her junior years included winning her first national championship at age 13 and first world championship at age 17 both on horses she trained herself on the family farm. She was awarded the Cynthia Eperson Outstanding Youth Award in 1995, and in 1999 she was recognized as the Morgan Connection’s Pyramid Award winner for Amateur Trainer of the Year.

Upon graduating from Penn State in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Renewable Resource Economics and a minor in Economics, Amanda made the decision to relocate and reopen Windward Farm in Port Matilda. The new farm would focus on training and showing rather than breeding and offer instruction to riders of all ages and abilities. The facility opened its doors to the public in the fall of 2000 with Amanda at the helm as owner/trainer/instructor.

Since handing in her amateur status Amanda has trained or instructed to over 75 world and national championships in multiple divisions. These wins have come with numerous horses and students and each one represents the culmination of her hard work, dedication, determination, love of the Morgan horse and the people who own them.

Amanda received her small ‘r’ judges card for Morgans in 2011 and started judging in 2012. She is also a member of USEF, UPHA and AMHA. She lives on site at the farm with her husband Lane Billetts and her son Anthony.
