25-year-old Hallie has been eventing since childhood, turning pro as soon as she was old enough and enjoying a quick trajectory through the upper levels while still in her teens. She's been based full-time in Ocala since 2018 after spending a season in England courtesy of the Karen Stives Endowment Fund Grant, which allowed her to compete as part of the US team at the Houghton International Nations Cup, as well as at the CCI4*-L for under-25s at Bramham, the CCIO4*-S at Millstreet, Ireland, and finally, her debut CCI5* at Les Etoiles de Pau in France.
Upon her return from Europe, which helped to foster several close friendships and business alliances with some of the continent's leading producers and trainers, she set up her own base in Ocala, from which she runs a string of youngsters alongside her established competition horses. Here, she's able to focus on her passion for producing top-notch eventers, while chasing opportunities and working to become an established member of the US team.
In 2020 and 2021, she hopes to make return trips across the pond to compete at events including Boekelo CCI4*-L, Aachen, and Pau, as well as keeping two big events in the UK on her radar. She trains with Bruce Davidson, Kirk Webby, and Erik Duvander.
MEET THE TEAM
It's all about the horses here at HCE, and our compact, experienced team works seamlessly to ensure that they're happy, healthy, and thriving.
It wouldn't be a barn without a mascot, and rescue dog Sybil has adopted the role with a unique enthusiasm. You can find her ruling the roost on the farm (from a water bucket on hot days!)
