Amber Anderson

Amber Anderson

Having been born and raised in the Kawarthas, Amber Anderson has always had a passion for all things equestrian and particularly the thrill of competition. She started riding at a very young age and has never gone a day without horses in her life.

For many years Amber worked as a camp counsellor and eventually camp director at Ostler Park Equestrain Centre. She then went on to train with some of Canada’s best riders including Chef D’Equipe Tom Gayford, Jay Hayes, Jason Pascoe, Andrea Bresee, and Ian Roberts.

Amber has her Bachelor of Education and has 10 years experience teaching in the Public School System. Teaching riders is her passion, however, and her favourite thing is helping children succeed when they did not think they could.

Amber and her husband have owned and operated Small Victory Farm in Norwood Ontario for the past 8 years. The 86 acre SVF has grown into a very successful and well respected boarding, training, and lesson facility boasting a brand new indoor arena, 3 outdoor rings, hunter/jumper courses, cross-country course, dressage ring and metered galloping field. It is home to 28 horses ranging from school ponies, to eventers, jumpers, dressage horses, Hanoverian broodmares and quality Warmblood young stock. The first Hanoverian filly to be born on property qualified for both the Lieutenant and Governor General’s Cups at the Royal Winter Fair in 2013, and began her eventing career at Grandview Horse Trials in 2015.
