A Little about Jill

Jill lives in Sherwood, OR, She has been a student of the horse for over 25 years. Her greatest joy is to bring horses and their humans together. She focuses on the FUNdamentals of horsemanship by aiming for true unity through knowledge and reverence.

During her continual search for ways to bridge the gap between equines and humans she has been delighted to discover many wonderful modalities and teachers. Her primary areas of  inspiration have been: Natural Horsemanship, the teachings of Polly Roberts, Jenny Pim, Ingela Larsson Smith, James French, Pat and Linda Parelli, Sharon Wilsie, Reiki,  "Clicker" training, and more. 

Having practiced the martial arts for over 20 years, Equestrian Tai Chi seemed like a natural extension of her studies. And, now as a certified instructor of Equestrian Tai Chi, she is thrilled to add this modality to her tool kit of communication. 

She earned her Equine Science certificate through the University of Guelph in December of 2018.

She would love to guide you along your journey toward a stronger bond between you and your equine partner.
