Equestrian Senior Salute - Jillian Pero

Equestrian Senior Salute - Jillian Pero

Name: Jillian Pero

Hometown/High School: Dansville, NY / Dansville

Major: Management

Plans for next year: Finishing up my last semester of school

Career goal: Unsure still

Favorite memory with the team: Our team bonding of tubing on the lake, regionals, and bonding in the van and hotels for shows

What advice would give to freshmen on the team: Listen to your coach and experienced riders because everyone has their own way of explaining things and more importantly ask questions and dont give up

What would you tell someone looking at Keuka College: The professors are more than willing to help you learn and it's where I've met some of my closest friends and grew as a person

What does it mean to be a part of the #KCFamily: Making lifelong friendships and experiencing new things that will have an impact on the rest of your life

From Coach Bedient: Jill Pero has been a member of the team for all four years, being one of the captains for the last two. She can usually be found volunteering to ride one of the less experienced horses for extra barn time. I wish her luck with all of her future plans. 


Our seniors had their Keuka College spring season cut short because of the global pandemic. Over the next several weeks we will take the opportunity to thank and honor each of these seniors who demonstrated such strength, dedication and support to their sport, to Keuka College Athletics and throughout their time at Keuka College. We are so proud to have them as part of our #KCFamily and we can't wait to see what they do next!  #gratitudeforKCSeniors2020
