About Hannah

Hannah was bit by the horse bug when she was five years old, and she grew up riding almost every discipline from Eventing, Dressage, and Jumpers to Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, and Gaming. Her mom supported her horse obsession by helping her purchase her first off the track Thoroughbred at fifteen, which was the beginning of Hannah’s riding passion turning into her professional pursuit.

Hannah graduated from Lake Erie College’s Equine School in Painesville, OH with a B.S. as an Equine Teacher/Trainer and a B.S in Equine Facility Management. During her college career, Hannah was involved in almost every aspect of the Equine School; she was a member of the Ladies Legacy, Saddle Fitting Squad, and Equine Leadership Council clubs, and she was on both the IDA (Intercollegiate Dressage Association) and IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) Hunt Seat teams. During college, Hannah spent her summer and winter breaks working for multiple professionals at different barns in order to learn and hone her craft. She has working student credentials with Christine Longnecker (Erie, PA), Bascule Farm (Poolesville, MD), Raven Ridge Farm (Wellington, FL), and Evans Equestrian (Chagrin Falls, OH).

Through her college experiences and time working at different barns, Hannah has developed a strong belief in the classical, effective, and mindful training of horse and rider. Her personal horsemanship journey has led her to believe in continuing education, whether it be reading articles, watching videos, shadowing trainers, or simply spending time in the barn. She believes you are never done learning, and she hopes to instill this passion in the next generation of riders. Hannah’s number one priority is bringing out the best in both horse and rider through positive reinforcement, and she is thrilled to bring her talents and experiences to the equestrian community.
