About Jill Griffith

Jill Griffith has been involved with horses almost daily for over 40 years. After being made redundant from her scientific laboratory work she retrained as a riding instructor and gained BHS qualifications. Her main interests were showjumping her horse for regional finals on the BSJA scene along with her freelance teaching and lecturing.

More recently her enthusiasm for combining her passion of horses, with her scientific background, led to a Batchelor of Science with 1st class Honours. Jill’s continued to research the best methods of training using sound scientific evidence. She has trained classically gaining experience in Jerez at ‘The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art’ with Olympic rider Rafael Soto. She has homebred horses along with her Spanish horses. They are all barefoot and kept as natural as possible. It was her Spanish carriage horse that led Jill to working with the understanding of the natural asymmetry of the horse. This enabled him to work in balance and ultimately in self carriage.
