Hayley grew up in Surrey and has been based at Dassett Eventing since 2013, having spent the previous 2 years riding for Lucy Wiegersmar. With Lucy she gained valuable experience riding all types of horses from recently backed 4 year olds through to those competing at 5* level. This gave Hayley the ideal preparation to take on the riding and training of Dassett Eventing horses. Hayley is exceptionally talented in producing young horses, with natural empathy and understanding. Her abilities ensure every horse she works with lays the best foundations possible, whilst also having the experience and knowledge to help train the horses competing at a higher level.
