When Jill and Murray Show Horses hits the show circuit each year, owners Jill Newcomb and Murray Griggs roll in style. Their head-turning, big, blue semi hauling twelve horses is a familiar sight at all the big shows, but when people see a glamorous woman in the driver’s seat, they often do a double take. Jill laughs and takes it all in stride with the can-do attitude than comes from being a third-generation horseman.

She says, “Murray and I both have our CDL license, and we both drive. It makes sense, because we’re on the road with the horses from the beginning to the end of the show season.” In addition to developing World Champion horses and clients, Jill and her fiancée, Murray, are lifelong competitors and champions in their own right. These professional horsemen train their Youth, Amateur, and Select clients to success at the elite level in AQHA and NSBA competition specializing in the All-Around. Murray has won at the World Show, Tom Powers Futurity, and Texas Classic Futurity. Jill has won at the World Show, All-Around, and Reserve All-Around in the nation.

Jill and Murray Show Horses is a boutique operation catering exclusively to a small number of clients in order to give each horse and rider exceptional personal service. They also take pride in the fact that, while they’re smaller in order to give their clients and horses more individual attention, they’re not more expensive than other programs.

Jill explains, “Murray had a business with 40–60 horses at one time; but, we found that with a handful of clients, we can give each of them undivided attention, and we like that. We have retired show horses at home; but, as far as when we’re on the road, all of the competition horses come with us whether they’re competing at that show or not. At any given time, we may have ten to twelve horses on the road with us. That way, we can continue their training, and the horses are used to the show routine.
