Hilary spent many years training and competing in Hunter/Jumper and Three Day Eventing, which gave her a deep respect for rhythm, composure, versatility, and perseverance. In 2014 she was introduced to Horse Archery by author/director Mike Loades and they subsequently established California’s first HA club, the California Centaurs. Two years later, Hilary began studying and collaborating with champion competitor Wojtek Osiecki (Stajnia Grom, Wojtek Osiecki Horseback Archery, Poland), which motivated her to infuse her own training program with European methodology. Since then, she has been employing pressure/release horsemanship and biomechanics as a means of developing horse and rider into the ideal HA team, and also as a means of understanding her equine partners and herself more fully. She has competed in International Horseback Archery Alliance competitions and Kassai World Cups in the USA, Canada, Poland, Germany, France, and South Africa. Hilary runs a training program with a team of BLM mustangs in Petaluma, California, and travels to teach clinics, offer demos, and compete.
