Camie Stockhausen lives in Cambridge, Iowa and is a United States Eventing Association Instructor Certification Program graduate. She has earned Iowa Horsewoman of the Year and Iowa Thoroughbred Owner’s and Breeders Association Eventing Thoroughbred of the year, as well being a member of the USEA Bronze Medal Club.
She has earned her foxhunting colors and is a member of the North Hills Hunt of Omaha, Nebraska and Fort Leavenworth Hunt in Fort Leavenworth Kansas. It is the only military hunt remaining in the United States.
Camie has competed and excelled at USEA- recognized horse trials through the preliminary level at the American Eventing Championships, always training her own horses, which have been thoroughbreds, warmbloods, arabians and quarter horses. She has developed horses for clients for foxhunting, eventing, western pleasure, trail riding and driving. For her personal horses and for clients, she buys off-track thoroughbreds and develops them for foxhunting or eventing. She works with riders from children through adults, focusing on logical, well-rounded development, and fun.
Camie teaches clinics throughout the midwest. She focuses on using the foundations of dressage to develop quality, relaxed jumping. She also helps riders communicate more effectively with their horses to get better results.
A great deal of her success with horses is founded on the cornerstone that the relationship between horses and riders is best when horses are regarded as partners, rather than slaves. The manner in which riders communicate is key. Camie’s mission is to help riders develop relaxed communication with their horses.
