Le Cheval Event Team

Jill and Mark have developed a successful group of event riders in the Southern Illinois area.  With students competing from the Starter-Intermediate level, there is room for everyone to join the event team.

No experience in three-day eventing is necessary!  A passion for riding and a willingness to learn is all that is required.  Riders have the option of attending events in Illinois and neighboring states (Kentucky, Missouri, Kansas, Michigan, Tennessee, Georgia) during a single year.  Opportunities to compete at the legendary Kentucky Horse Park as well as many other top-class venues.

Jill and Mark both have experience competing at the top levels of the sport, as well as experience interacting with riders at the very top, CCI****, level.  Their daughters Meghan and Kelty have also produced horses through the top levels and currently compete at the Intermediate level and above.
