OUR TEAM

Head Trainer

Jill Hamilton created Millennium Farm with Nancy Thomas in 1996 out of a shared desire to provide expert training and care for show horses while providing personalized attention and customized programs for ambitious riders. Jill Hamilton has extensive "A" show success as a rider and horse trainer, which allows her to incorporate sophisticated knowledge with a high degree of individual attention not often found at training barns. 

 

In the tradition started by Nancy and Jill, at Millennium Farm Jill continues to manage every aspect of horse care and rider training to ensure that our human and equine athletes perform and feel their best.
