Kimber Kirchner’s passion for horses started at a very young age, and 23 years later she is still pursuing her passion now as a professional in the equine industry. In the fall of 2013, Kimber started working for Nell Tekampe to further her education in training and competing performance horses. For the next four years, she travelled to many breed shows, both local and national, and continued her education under the skilled eyes of the World Champion trainer. 

Kimber has prepared performance horses for competition and competed in Hunters, Dressage, Western Dressage and Competitive Trail. When it comes to lessons and training, Kimber truly cares about the horse and rider and tries to make learning both fun and educational.  As a trainer of Showtime Farms, she is prepared to teach all levels of riders new skills both from the ground and under saddle.


Jill Heisler is our resident dressage trainer. She enjoys helping people find new ways to connect with and enjoy their horses. She sees dressage as a way to push yourself and your horse to a level of discipline that is both fun and rewarding. Whether you are just looking to start the basics or you want to start moving up the levels through competition, Jill can help you set and reach your goals. Jill began riding when she was 8 years old and began competing in Eventing when she was 15. She started working on her dressage skills to help increase her eventing scores and fell in love with the art of it. Jill has successfully competed through PSG and is working on achieving her USDF gold medal in the Intermediare and Grand Prix levels.

Not only does Jill enjoy being a competitive dressage rider, but she also rides in exhibitions across the country performing routines with a team of stallions specializing in High School or Alta Escuela. Jill’s style of training focuses on the connection between horse and rider. Every horse is different and she takes pride in helping horses understand their jobs better so that their owners can communicate better with them. She doesn’t discriminate among breeds, ages or genders but instead helps create a foundation that allows any horse to find comfort and harmony in their work. 


Amanda Glaser’s riding career began when she was 4 years old and has continued to grow and expand over the last 20 years. She began eventing at 13 and in 2011 she won the IDCTA Pre-Novice Championship as well as the IDCTA Year End High Point. At 16 she stopped taking lessons so she could afford to buy her first horse, a 4-year-old Morgan that she started and trained on her own. In June of 2020, she found her passion for Team Roping, which lead her to buy her second horse. As a team, they have won competitions, started to earn money, and rekindled a competitive fire for Amanda. She believes in continuous learning and has had the opportunity while at Showtime to ride a variety of disciplines including reining horses, pleasure horses, and all-around horses, which has added to her knowledge base. 

Additionally, Amanda has been a certified farrier for 6 years and worked as one full-time while earning her Associates’s Degree. She later completed her degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, which led her down a different career path. Luckily, her career allows her to continue at Showtime as well, where she loves teaching and always tries to create a fun learning environment, whether it be beginner and intermediate lessons or roping. As a trainer, Amanda tries to tailor her lessons to each specific student and explain everything in detail so they can learn and achieve their goals.
