Specific Styles: 3 Day Eventing
Primary Horse’s Name: “Delilah Z”
” My name is Hannah Wright and I am a 16-year-old, Area III eventer based out of Gainesville, GA. I was four years old when I sat on a horse for the very first time. What was originally supposed to be a fun activity, became a passion that has driven me through many different disciplines of riding and different types of horses. I rode out of a Hunter/Jumper Barn for nine years until I was introduced to Pony Club in 2015. Through Pony Club, I found and fell in love with the sport of 3-day eventing. This sport has taught me the importance of humbleness and patience because it is easy to be in first on day one and last on day three. However, my role model and trainer Jill Henneberg, does a very good job of preparing us for all three phases and teaching us the importance of teamwork and hard work.
I could not do this sport without my mare Delilah Z. Delilah is a 15.2 hh, 11-year-old, Swedish Warmblood who has been such an amazing horse to compete with. This past year, we have placed in the ribbons at almost every show including a second place at Area III championships. We can be found competing all across the south almost every weekend of almost every month. All the competitions prepare me for my short and long-term goal of competing at the FEI North American Youth Championships at the one-star level in 2019 and competing at the Olympic Games in the future. This could not be possible without the support I receive from my family and the life lessons that I take away from every ride. I want to inspire kids who were once like me and encourage them to chase their dreams until they are achieved. ”
