As owner and operator of Descanso Farm, Hannah Selleck is combining her equestrian knowledge with her desire to develop top sport horses. Over the past decade, the emerging young talent has made a name for herself in the equitation and jumper disciplines.
Hannah Selleck is a committed equestrian as well as a model for equestrian fashion. With a love of horses that began at the tender age of four atop a tiny pony, she has carried her passion through her teenage years and into adulthood. Selleck trained with Karen Healey for the duration of her junior riding career, accomplishing a series of prestigious medal finals victories such as winning the 2008 North American Young Riders Championship Team Gold and Individual Gold medals, as well as the Style of Riding Award, and the USEF Talent Search Medal Finals, to cap off a very successful junior career. Olympians Will Simpson, Leslie Burr Howard, and Ian Millar have all supplemented her training over the years.
She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Loyola Marymount University in 2011, while interning with a public relations firm in Beverly Hills, and upon graduation made the decision to follow the path of becoming a top international show jumper. Currently riding with Ilan Ferder, Selleck recently competed successfully at the 2014 Spruce Meadows Summer Series in Calgary, Canada, which hosts the best show jumping athletes and horses from throughout the world.
Along with competing show jumpers, Selleck is involved in breeding and developing her own string of young horses at Descanso Farm. She has recently left her native California and is currently living in New York. When her show schedule will allow, she plans to join a Just World International trip, hopefully within the coming year.
