Noah T.Y. loves God, his family, and people… horses too!
He’s married with 3 children and is also the pastor of a small country church in South Texas.
The founder of Steady Horse LLC — An educational, training, and betterment resource for equestrians of all levels — Noah is from a large, ranching family of ten kids. They raised beef and dairy cattle, and everyone had a job. Noah’s job was training the horses and working the cattle on horseback.
When Noah was a teenager, his mother had a horrific horseback riding accident that caused her to consider giving up riding altogether. She felt riding was “too dangerous” because she was “too old” and wasn’t confident in her balance, quickness, or strength anymore. She expressed to Noah that she had absolutely no desire to fight with a horse to get them to comply and be safe.
His mother’s experience challenged Noah to find a way for fearful riders to regain their confidence and rekindle the joy and excitement of riding by knowing how to be safe with their horse.
Noah dedicated his life to traveling, studying, learning, apprenticing, and discovering a new and safer way to work with horses.
Several years later, the Steady Horse Approach™ was born. It was a new way to work with horses that was clear, concise, and easy to follow. And it could be easily modified for different types of horses.
Noah’s Steady Horse Approach™ has helped thousands of people to quickly have safer and more meaningful relationships with their horses.
Noah has been teaching The Steady Horse Approach for the past 15 years and has personally started over 500 horses using this method.
Having worked in over 50 different horse-related industries, Noah knows how to quickly pinpoint the root of rider’s challenges so they can overcome them quickly.
Today, he lives on his ranch in Texas, where he records weekly broadcasts, films training videos, and hosts private clinics for people from around the country.
Growing up in South Florida, Amy was the horse-crazy kid who could not get enough of all things horse related. Even though she didn’t own one of her own, it didn’t stop her from jumping at the chance to ride at every opportunity.
At the age of 26, she finally got her first horse and has been making up for lost time ever since!
Over the past 35 years, Amy has trained and ridden with the Union County Mounted Patrol Search and Rescue Team, Worked the stockyards moving and sorting cattle, and ridden countless miles of trails in North and South Carolina, from the mountains to the sand-lands.
She continues to ride as often as possible and particularly enjoys hauling her horse to state parks and national forests, setting up camp, then hitting the trails for three or four days of taking in God’s magnificent creations.
In addition to the average camping adventure, she looks forward to the annual “Hunt for Big Foot Ride” organized trail ride held in the mountains of NC.
While she and her friends have never encountered this imagined yet legendary figure, it always makes for a great weekend of fellowship with other riders. (Be sure and Let her know if you ever happen to find him!)
And because it is her firm belief that we are to use our God-given talents and gifts to serve others, she enjoys being a part of benefit trail rides designed to raise money for a wide range of organizations as well as individuals in need.
Amy does 1-on-1 personal coaching as well as a weekly live video broadcast, “Barn Hour,” where she group coaches students from all over the world to mentor, encourage, and give specific advice on how to become better horsemen to their horses.
