Jayne Stewart is located in the Carolina Foothills area known as Tryon Horse Country. She has an extensive background that includes working with many different breeds in a variety of divisions. This wide experience gives her a unique perspective when teaching or problem solving riding and training issues. As a teacher, Jayne works to help her students acquire knowledge in essential equestrian skills that apply to all disciplines. She is currently accepting new clients and is available for clinics and workshops.

“I have always loved horses, all horses and all that you can do with them – English, Western, Jumping, and Driving.” Growing up all she can remember is wanting to be with horses. Combined Training and Hunters were predominant in the area she grew up so her initial experiences lead her in that direction. “My father surprised me with my first horse when I was 13.” Joining Pony Club and 4-H she competed successfully at the local, regional and national levels. While still in High School, the success of her own horses lead to the arrival of outside horses to train. The first two horses (3 yr olds) were sent to her by her veterinarian to train for his children.

Jayne has a unique perspective which comes from not only working with different breeds but also different styles of riding and working with foals on up through finished show horses. Jayne’s goal is to give young horses a solid foundation and to help all horses and their owners develop confidence and enhance their performance in a way that is not threatening to either horse or rider. She became a certified practitioner of Linda Tellington-Jones’ TTEAM/TTouch Method in 1997. Jayne continues to seek information in particular on Equine Biomechanics and has attended workshops on Straightening The Crooked Horse, taught by Klaus Schoneich and the late Kerry Ridgeway DVM. Jayne's interest in Rider Biomechanics as taught by author and clinician Mary Wanless has resulted in her attending clinics taught by Mary and her long time student Stephanie Mosely McDougald, bringing a new perspective and teaching style that is enhancing her ability to facilitate real changes for her two and four legged students.

Jayne is thankful for all the teachers both Horse and Human who have helped her in her journey. In particular Arianne (1984-1996) and Juan (1993-present). “Both brought the work of Linda Tellington-Jones to my attention and helped me incorporate this most important work into my life.”
