Our Instructors

Meet Hailey!

Hailey is not only a riding instructor here at Sonoran Performance Horses, but she is also the owner!

Hailey has been teaching lessons here since 2021 when we first opened up our doors! 

Hailey loves riding Hunt Seat and loves to teach this style of riding. She is also qualified to teach western pleasure and jumping, though Hunt Seat is where her preferences lie.

Hailey has over a decade of riding, training, & handling experience!

She started her riding career in the gaited horse industry riding western, however, once she tried hunt seat, she was obsessed and never looked back when she switched. 

Hailey loves taking her students to local shows on our horses where they do great in the Hunt Seat Eq classes!

Some of Hailey’s favorite students to work with are the young kiddos who ride at our barn! Taking a timid young beginner and transforming them into a confident  rider who can rock the show ring is what Hailey finds most rewarding. Hailey is definitely a kid person!

Hailey has loved horses her whole life, and now wants to dedicate her life to sharing that passion with others!
