MORE ABOUT HAILEY

In 2003 at age 19, Hailey turned professional and started her own Hunter/Jumper training facility at a 34-acre facility in Lafayette, Louisiana.    She started a lesson program and was soon traveling to shows with clients.  Hailey helped form the local Hunter Jumper Association, hosted clinics and summer camps, and continued riding, training and selling Thoroughbred horses.

The same year Hailey got the itch to get back into the show ring and bought a 1.20-jumper from a friend.  Soon they were competing in the Low and High Junior Jumpers and made the cut for the Zone 7 Prix de States in Harrisburg.   That was before Zine Dine.   And before she met Christian Rogge at a Texas horse show.  The pair were married in 2016 and Hailey moved to Houston.  The same year Zine Dine earned the 2016 USEF Touch of Class Thoroughbred Jumper Award as the most successful thoroughbred  jumper in the country.

Exceedingly unassuming about her vast credentials, Hailey has the opportunity to ride and show TSP's top quality, well-trained Warmbloods in the Hunter and Jumper rings.  Although she appreciates the horses her husband prefers, it hasn't changed her mind about the special bond she has with the off-track American Thoroughbreds that made it possible to for her to compete across the nation from Medal Finals, to Madison Square Gardens, and Prix de States.  Today she and Zine Dine are regulars on national Grand Prix circuit.
