From Our Editors
Hillside Riding School's Jill Cross has a background that nearly encapsulates the entirety of the equestrian profession. She's exercised race horses, taught the disciplines of saddleseat, Western pleasure, and dressage, and even earned her certification as a equine massage therapist. With this degree of training behind her, teaching new students is a breeze. She takes novices and molds them into strong, confident riders by establishing strong fundamentals and base skills. During lessons, she tailors her instruction to the student's individual goals and aspirations, whether they include competing on a show circuit or just trotting along a scenic forest trail.
