Member of the Week Amanda Petersen

Introducing this week’s Member of the Week, Amanda Petersen!

“Amanda Petersen is a newer ACTHA Ride Host from Snowflake, AZ. She has already held a few rides this season despite a few setbacks early on. Amanda didn’t call off her rides though, she pushed right through to put on some great rides for her riders, who were very pleased! She takes the time to upload the photos from her rides, and loves to highlight the riders who had a great ride, either in terms of placing, or because of a good attitude. Dedication like this is getting harder to come by, so Amanda is a world apart when it comes to making sure everyone has a good time. But that’s not the most amazing thing about Amanda, oh no! She’s also an emergency medical helicopter pilot. She spends her days and nights helping save people’s lives out there in the scrublands of Arizona. She’s also a great rider & trainer, and a loving mother. Keep an eye out for an upcoming article featuring some words of wisdom from Amanda about hosting AOCs. What a great lady!” Thank you, Amanda, for being an exemplary Ride Host and putting on some great shows for your riders.

Congratulations to Amanda Petersen of Arizona, for being this week’s Member of the Week! Many thanks to Molly’s Custom Silver for sponsoring this weekly event. Molly’s Custom Silver is ACTHA’s official silversmith!
