Cheryl Barnes-Lynn

Agatha D’Ambra is a truly remarkable horsewoman. I have witnessed her professionalism and dedication to the sport both at her home base in Rexford, NY and on the road at shows such as the Winter Equestrian Festival. The well being and high quality care of her animals  is obviously her top priority. She is a role model for aspiring equestrian professionals; she has the ability to excel both on the horse and to share her knowledge and skill with riders through teaching. I consider myself privileged to train with her and watch her in action.
Perhaps her most notable quality is that unique combination of being a fiercely aggressive competitor in the ring while never losing the critical traits of good sportsmanship and commitment to her equine partner.

It was a pleasure working with Agatha to help me find my dream horse. It was her number one priority to make sure that both my horse and I suit each other well and would make a strong partnership. Agatha’s meticulous care in raising her horses from the time they are a foal shines through in their demeanor and personality.

I would suggest Trade Winds to anyone looking for top care and excellent training. Agatha always puts her horses 1st.

I worked for Agatha in the summer of 2007 while she was training with Millar Brooke Farm. During this time I got to know Agatha as not only a wonderful person but also a great rider and successful competitor. With many wins and high placings in both the hunter and jumper rings across Canada and The USA, I got the pleasure of standing proud, ring side, as a team member of Trade Winds Farm.

Aside from Agatha’s success, I was most impressed by her ability to take many different personality type horses and become successful with each one in their own class capabilities. A true sign of great horsemanship. It would be my pleasure to work for, ride with or get training from Agatha again in the future.
