Horses by Heart is a Natural Horsemanship collaboration between Edie Brogan and Hillary Fredrickson. We specialize in everything from ground-work to colt-starting to rehabbing problem horses, both on the ground and under saddle. Training/lessons happens at Hope Hill Farm, or at your barn, with your horse(s). Hillary also offers Masterson-Method body-work for horses.
Edie lives at Hope Hill Farm, which is located just east of Madison, WI. Edie has over 50 years of horsemanship experience, of which almost 30 was spent as a mounted police officer and trainer in urban Madison.... (read more) She is an avid student of "natural" horsemanship methods (using horse-psychology and resistance-free training). Edie is also a dynamic, passionate teacher of humans, with over 30 years of teaching experience.
Recently, Edie’s long-time student Hillary Fredrickson joined the partnership and brings many talents: years of solid (she is gifted!) horsemanship knowledge and experience, Masterson Method bodywork, and her youthful athleticism and enthusiasm. We would both love to meet you and your horses, or teach you with ours what wonderful benefits only they as a species are able give to humans. Come join the very addicting journey that is horsemanship!
