Your Teacher:

Jamie Stump, creator of Heart Horsemanship, helps students around the globe rethink their horsemanship approach.

In her decades as a professional in the horse-business, she has been exposed to just about every approach to working with and caring for horses—learning the hard way, what is common is often not what is best.


Jamie shares her experience and knowledge in a way that encourages students to question their beliefs and come to their own conclusions—empowering them to do what is best for their horses.


Her empathetic, communication-based approach keeps the horses's well-being at the forefront and creates partnerships where ordinary horses and ordinary people accomplish extraordinary things, because they BELIEVE they can.

I've known Jamie for over 20 years. She is extremely knowledgeable about horse management, and is an excellent instructor, rider, and trainer. She also has an in-depth awareness of alignment from the hooves up. I can't recommend her highly enough, and anyone who works with her is very lucky indeed! There aren't very many horse folks with her wisdom, knowledge, education, and ability around these days.

Module 1

Big Picture, Self-Care, & Core Care

We’ll go over the big picture of the program and dive into the “care” that needs to be in place for horse and rider to get the most out of this program and be in an ideal state to begin building a partnership.


Module 2

Mindfulness & Awareness in Horsemanship

Mindfulness and awareness is essential to building a trust-based partnership—allowing you to notice the subtle communication from your horse in ordinary moments.  You'll learn how self-awareness and self-control is a form of communication while expanding your awareness and ability to regulate the energy of your emotions, vitality, and movement.

Module 3

Rider Position Parameters

Awareness of your own body is an essential part of communication with your horse.  When you ride, the alignment and balance of your body directly affects your horse's physical development.  This module will teach you the basic parameters of alignment and balance for the rider and is FULL of exercises to help you explore and improve your own alignment and balance.


Module 4

Basic Bodywork Routine + Basic Balance & Alignment Theory

You’ll learn the Basic Bodywork Routine to identify any areas of tension in your horse and help him release it—this introduction to bodywork will allow you to begin incorporating the essence of bodywork into everything you do with your horse. 


Then we’ll dive into learning the theory of Basic Balance & Alignment for horses in a simple, fun way 🙂

Module 5

Basic Communication

You’ll learn a systematic communication approach with the long-term goal of refining your communication in such a way you can eventually transcend the need for physical aids.  You’ll start integrating all the pieces you’ve learned as you begin communicating with your horse during ground and riding exercises.


Module 6

Movement Optimization

You’ll learn the variable inputs that affect your horse’s movement and how to use your awareness and communication skills to have conversations about them.  You’ll practice conversations about each input in isolation before putting it all together as you guide your horse in optimizing his movement and discover how to move optimally together.

Student Comments

"Jamie gave me the confidence to get back on the horse!  She supported me in trusting I can train my horse safely, effectively, and have FUN!  This was just the right program for me.  The program helped me with my older, more seasoned horse and my younger, less experienced horse as well.  It is very comprehensive and a fantastic value!  There is so much valuable information.  Jamie's lifetime of horsemanship and passion for developing deep, meaningful connections to her horses is evident in this program.  She is a delightful person and a wonderful instructor with a gift for catching the small changes that make a big difference—I felt so good after our lessons.  I couldn't be more thrilled with the results from this program.  My horse and I have never been better."
