Harriet Morton

Harriet Morton Leadership Team (Equestrian Director)

Harriet B Morton is a long-time horsewoman. She started interacting with horses when she was 4 and got her first pony when she was 8. She was fortunate to live in the country on an old farm. A few college students kept their horses there and taught her about riding and horses. Thus, her love of horses was born. 

Harriet taught lessons, trained and showed horses and worked at camps during her high school and college years. She attended veterinary college for almost 3 years before deciding she wanted to work with horses and kid’s full time. Harriet started her own riding, boarding and training business when she was 25. 8 years later, she and her parents and husband moved the business to 42 acres in Abbeville, SC. They cleared and built pastures, barns and rings.

In 2018, Harriet “retired” from the horse business. The farm was sold, Harriet and her husband moved to Brevard, NC in 2021, where she focuses on her art business and volunteering for several organizations. Harriet has 2 daughters. Her oldest daughter is in the horse business and manages a stable in Aiken, SC. Her younger daughter is studying to be an equine vet tech. 

Harriet’s professional equine experiences span over three and a half decades and include:

  • volunteering in the 4-H Horse Program
  • studying Linda Tellington Jones’s Touch
  • certifying as a CHA Master Instructor
  • directing the riding program at Camp Illahee for 5 yrs
  • certifying as a mental skills coach with Daniel Stewart
  • becoming an Equine Gestalt Method Practitioner

Harriet believes horses play the greatest role as teacher and healers. She makes sure riders understand that horses are part of the team, not just an animal to ride. She considers learning about horses and horsemanship just as important, if not more, than riding.
