One of America's most renowned horse show jumping riders, Susan Hutchison began riding when she was five years old at the Flintridge Riding Club in Southern California. By the age of 12, she had been Reserve Champion in the Junior Hunter division at New York's National Horse Show, and at the age of 18, aboard her horse Red Baron at the Indio National Horse Show, she jumped a record 7 foot high puissance wall. With countless accolades along the way, she was inducted in 2015 into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame, and continues to compete as well as operates a full service horse training facility with a competitive horse show schedule and horse services available to both horse and rider located in the beautiful Temecula Valley of Southern California.
