About Amanda Steege

Practical Horseman - - Cross Country With Jim Wofford -

Grow­ing up, Amanda Steege was never far from a horse. Her par­ents were horse pro­fes­sion­als and own­ers of Red Acre Farm, in Stow, Mas­sachusetts. At a very young age, Amanda would fre­quently be placed on top of one of the school horses in its stall to keep her safe while her father, Mitch, com­pleted his barn chores.

As a Ju­nior, Amanda cam­paigned her Small Ju­nior Hunter, One In A Mil­lion (aka Spanky), to great suc­cess. Coached by her father and Bill Cooney (and still rid­ing Spanky), Amanda won the 1991 Mas­sachusetts Medal Fi­nals and com­peted in the Medal and Ma­clay Fi­nals in the fol­low­ing two years. She grad­u­ated magna cum laude from Bos­ton Col­lege and started her own busi­ness, Ash­meadow Farm, in 2001.

Amanda has been the World Cham­pion Hunter Rider for the north­east re­gion for the last seven con­sec­u­tive years. She and her clients have won nu­mer­ous cham­pi­onships at Devon, the Hamp­ton Clas­sic, Mid­dle­burg Clas­sic and the In­door cir­cuit. She runs her farm with her boyfriend of 14 years, Tim Delovich, split­ting time between Ocala, Flor­ida, and Cal­i­fon, New Jersey.
