An early love of horses led Hailey to begin riding lessons at the age of five. Her riding continued developing through the years with regular training in multiple equestrian disciplines. After graduating from SUNY Fredonia with a bachelors degree in Media Art, Hailey followed her heart and dove into working with horses full time, concentrating specifically in dressage.
Hailey’s journey in the equine industry has taken her many places working for and with some very talented trainers including time spent in the Midwest, Europe, California and the Southern East Coast, before moving to North Carolina where she founded Guardian Dressage.

She has been actively pursuing many great opportunities including starting dozens of young horses in her career, showing and successfully campaigning young horses and stallions, and earning her USDF silver medal on a stallion she trained to Prix St. George.

Since starting Guardian Dressage, Hailey has been showing her own KWPN mare Dalwhinney, and the pair is the 2017 Region One 2nd Level Open and 2nd Level Musical Freestyle Champions.
