“Jill was instrumental in helping my daughter obtain a college scholarship on the equestrian team. Then she helped me lease my daughter’s horse while she was at college. She is one of the few people I trust in the horse sales business ”

“Jill found the perfect horse for my daughter in The Netherlands. She handled every aspect of the deal with tremendous knowledge and professionalism. It was the best horse buying experience I’ve ever had!”
Dr. Melvin Pitts

“We shipped two horses from Canada to train with Jill for the winter. Their improvement in such a short time was remarkable. The kids lover her! She really helps to build self-confidence in young riders. Her skill, insight and patience helped our daughter rekindle her love for riding”
