JILL KNOWLES – OWNER/HEAD TRAINER
Jill is a nationally-competitive hunter/jumper professional with an eye for detail in her horses, students and facility. Jill’s top priority as she personally designed this facility was the care and comfort of Hidden Knoll’s horses and customers. Her sharp, discerning eye carries over to her training with students obtaining top ribbons while competing at some of the country’s most prestigious horse shows.
Jill began riding at the age of seven and never looked back. Her tenacity earned a bachelor of science degree in Equine Teacher Trainer and Facilities Management from Lake Erie College, graduating in 1990. Jill has experience in the hunter/jumper industry for over 40 years. She established Hidden Knoll in 1994.
