Jillian (Tory) Montgomery, daughter of Pat & Vickie Montgomery, is a professional rider/trainer for Montgomery Show Stable, based at The Yard Equine Center. Tory is an accomplished Hunter/Jumper rider who successfully competes at the A Level horse shows throughout California. As a member of The Yard’s team, Tory’s natural abilities to feel the horse combined with years of training with great horsemen like Buddy Brown, Leslie Howard, Richard Spooner, Bernie Traurig and Vickie Montgomery empowers Tory with a wonderful ability to effectively work with different types of horses; riding the young ones, conditioning a rehab horse back to work, and showing up to the Grand Prix level. As a professional rider/trainer, Tory instills in each horse she works with a higher degree of trust and confidence.

Sean Montgomery, our son, is an accomplished welder. Sean was instrumental in building The Yard’s facilities alongside his father. He continues to help in building paddocks & shelters for the horses as we continue to grow. In addition, Sean is excellent in the handling & transporting of horses.
