Hope's passion for horses began early in her life in Australia. Growing up on the family farm, she began riding competitively at age 6 in Show Horse competitions on several small ponies. Falling in love with equestrian sport, she decided to pursue a career as a professional rider. In 2019, Hope traveled to the USA to try out for a job with Team Haddad Staller. Always with an eye out for new talent, Haddad offered her a full time job riding, training and competing for the stable. Paired with Vianne, Alpha HM, Uno Elando, Marokko and Belougi, Hope has secured wins and top placings in young horse classes and classes up to Small Tour for Haddad's stable. She represented Australia in the CDI arena in the winter of 2021 and 2023 at the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, FL as well as the World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, NL under Haddad's tutelage. At the World Young Horse Championships, Hope and Vianne were Top 10 in the world for 7 year old horses.
Hope's Horse Care Philosophy
Hope believes whether you’re a trainer, coach, owner or groom it is good to make sure you are aware of how your horses feel with or without tack. Even though Hope is riding 6+ horses a day, she makes sure she puts her hand on every part of their body before she rides them. She also makes sure she tacks up her first horse up and always untacks her last horse. After all the riding is done, Hope helps with all the grooming so she can build stronger relationships with her horses.
