Our Founder

GILLIAN VALLIS is the founder, owner and operator of the Pine Knoll Center for Integrated Horsemanship. Gillian grew up in an equestrian household in England. Her grandfather was a trainer and breeder of National Hunt horses, and her father was a show jumper and point-to-point rider, who also became a National Hunt Trainer. Gillian was involved with the care and training of racing horses from age 9, learning all aspects of horse care and training. She later competed in Show Jumping and Dressage for many years in both the United Kingdom and Bermuda, earning a reputation as an extraordinary horsewoman. A series of events started her journey into the healing arts, personal development and well-being, giving her a unique background in both horse training/riding and holistic health.

Gillian has devoted her life to learning and understanding. Her certifications and education include certified Reiki Master, certified Metaphysician (Delphi University School of Inner Sense Development Metaphysics Degree Program – spiritual training, energy/holistic healing, intuitive development and self-enlightenment studies), certified One Brain, Life Change Program at the Hippocrates Health Institute, Three In One Concepts® Program, The Silva Method Mind Control Basic Lecture Series 101 thru 404 in 1999, The Melchizedek Method Level 1, Certification in the Seven Rays of Healing. She is an E3A (Equine Experiential Association) Certified Advanced Practitioner Personal Development and helped create the E3A Personal Development Teaching Curriculum.

Equine Experiential Learning is a fully interactive horse-human experience (non-riding) designed to support the facilitation of corporate or personal development workshops. Through a series of interactive goal orientated exercises our co-facilitators (the horses) provide instant honest feedback in the present moment. A facilitator’s job is to observe this horse-human interaction and based on our extensive equine knowledge and facilitation expertise, integrate this information into a learning opportunity. Gillian is gifted in the healing arts and a master in the art of creative teaching of transformation, nonverbal communication and body language, intuition and emotional intelligence.

More than anything, Gillian is a visionary and a connector. Through her leadership, Pine Knoll Center for Integrated Horsemanship has been a pioneer in providing educational opportunities and programs that support an integrated approach to the optimal health, well-being and performance of horses and humans and assembling a team of equally passionate experts to support the mission.

“Horses can be a catalyst to a higher state of consciousness if we allow them to be our guide. When we honestly and openly interact with horses they invite us to join them in a space I call Congruent Intelligence.” Gillian Vallis

Our Farm

Pine Knoll Farm is an extraordinary facility located in a breathtakingly beautiful setting just 10 miles from the Kentucky Horse Park, outside Lexington, Kentucky. Our equine facilities include a fabulous indoor arena, an outdoor arena, a wonderful barn and the paddocks and pastures you’d expect to find on a perfect Kentucky horse farm. Pine Knoll also has two luxury 5-star BnB units, both with porches overlooking the farm and surrounding countryside, and the Life Enhancement Center, a workshop/massage room/yoga studio space that also opens to the lovely grounds. Gillian built Pine Knoll Farm to share, so please join us! We’d love to meet you!
