Meet the Instructors

Hannah Jumping Rallies

Hannah is passionate about teaching and works as a part time riding instructor alongside being a primary school teacher full time. She has ridden horses all of her life and trained as a BHS AI with the addition of her Stage 4 riding as a young adult. She has been lucky enough to work in different riding schools and livery yards, as well as, as an eventing groom in Melbourne, Australia at various intervals. She also spent a period of time riding track work for a racehorse trainer and working with thoroughbred broodmares and foals. For Hannah, the skill and adrenalin rush of eventing is where her passion lies. Alongside work, she competes her horses at unaffiliated level up to 100cm and enjoy building trusting partnerships with them. Hannah has taught for the Pony Club for many years and is passionate about creating opportunities for children to make memories, have fun and make progress whilst also working hard to achieve any competitive goals they may have. Hannah cannot wait to welcome all riders to rallies in the future.
