Cam Stockhausen

Cam Stockhausen is a USEA Eventing Coaches Program-certified instructor.  She is a lifelong horsewoman who moved to Landrum, SC from Iowa in October of 2022.  In her former life in Iowa, she created Field Day, a boarding and training facility that continues to be a community of foxhunters, eventers, jumpers and trail riders under the guidance of new owner, Jenn DuCray.

Cam is blessed to have found a home at Spring Valley Farm, a historic and beautiful farm located a short hack from FENCE, and located on the FETA trails system.

Cam’s vision for the future is to create a community of Spring Valley Farm people who seek expansion in their horsemanship skills for deeper connection and enjoyment of their horses!

Client Testimonials

“I first found Cam when I was looking for an instructor with ample experience with young OTTBs in 2015, and her reputation was confirmed by the training and instruction I received over the next six years. My favorite part of lessons has been when she breaks down movements into smaller bits for me - a lesson at the walk to work on responsiveness to leg, or a training session with my horse to work through buddy sour behavior with exercises to focus her (and me!). I appreciate that Cam works with the horse and rider right in front of her; on days when I have anxiety about a new challenge, we take smaller steps out of my comfort zone until we reach progress I may not have thought possible. On days when I’m ready to jump the moon, we’ve spent many hours foxhunting, schooling cross country, and preparing for jumper classes. Over the last six years, I’ve learned more about whole-horse-centered riding through dressage and horsemanship than I ever knew I needed! I highly recommend Cam if you’re looking for a compassionate instructor to break out of patterns, defeat the mental blocks, and advance your riding skills.”
Natalie McLain and Story Problem
"Riding with Cam has increased my confidence immensely. I'm 71 years old and Red, my arabian horse, is 10. Our lessons with Cam are lots of fun and we have been gently expanding my comfort zone to the point where now I am doing new things with new groups of riders. My riding world has expanded thanks to Cam."
Molly Kiuchi and Red
"Cam connected me with my first directly off the track Thoroughbred with the goal of going to the Retired Racehorse Project. Her experience and expertise smoothed the transition from track athlete to amateur horse. Cam's instruction cemented the riding pieces I had and instilled a lot of confidence and knowledge. The lessons were fun and structured on improving skills. Her training (and a good horse) made the journey to Kentucky a successful bucket list experience!
