Lectures & Courses

As a life-long equestrian, Jillian’s passion has been shaped to focus on what is healthy for ridden horses. Jillian’s desire to understand horses at a deeper level took her on a learning journey to discover how the horse’s body functions biomechanically, and what it is that we are really asking from our horses in terms of collection and balance.

Education options include an introductory lecture series on equine biomechanics, three-day courses as a continuation of and practicum for the information in the lecture series, individual lessons locally and at course venues, weekend packages.
