Heart Centered Horsemanship is based on the philosophy that training begins with creating a relationship built on trust, mutual respect, and practices that improve the well-being of the horse. Developing leadership through gentle techniques of bodywork, groundwork, and riding, we can gain the horse's cooperation without force. Trainer Stacey Carter can help you get to the root of behavior issues with your horse and create a safer and more enjoyable partnership for any discipline or riding style. Training board is available to start young horses under saddle, build a foundation for riding using principles of classical dressage, and resolve challenges both on the ground and under saddle. Small group clinics can be arranged at your farm and at LaBelle Equestrian in Mt. Ulla, NC. We also offer horseback ridding lessons and therapeutic recreation opportunities for beginner to advanced students with our herd of school horses. 

    To say Stacey Carter is a horse trainer does not give her talents the credit they deserve. She has developed an art form similar to a potter and a piece of clay. Stacey is softening and shaping the horse and rider ultimately into a lasting relationship. Her talents blend yoga practice, equine massage, relaxation and rhythm. I have attended several of her Yin Horsemanship Clinics. They give you a wonderful overview of her approach to horsemanship and hands on ground work is added into the clinic.

   Harmony Farm Animal Haven turns to Stacey when it comes time to heal our horses mentally and work towards changing a traumatizing past in to a future that can ultimately lead to the goal we all hope for: a happy forever home. We couldn't thank her enough for the help she has given us.

   Stacey just has a way with horses and does a fantastic job with her lessons.  

She teaches in such a well rounded manner that promotes solid horsemanship.  

                              Highly recommend for all ages- kids and adults too!
