Alivia Hart’s equestrian lifestyle began with her mother riding everyday up until she was eight months pregnant with her. Growing up, she was raised on her family farm where she was constantly surrounded by ponies, horses, dogs, cats, and chickens. At age four, Alivia started training with professionals at least 5 days a week, 3-8 hours a day. Now that she is fourteen years old, she has amassed over 10,000 hours on horse back and has entered the show ring over 7,000 times.
Alivia has had great success as a catch rider in a variety of horse and pony divisions and has won numerous championships at every major horse show in California. She is responsible for the undertaking of schooling and training of many of her mounts. Over the years, she has worked with and been influenced by Olympian and Internationally acclaimed riders, including John French, Bernie Traurig, and Robert Ridland. Her goal is to work hard and obtain a scholarship to a NCAA college and, hopefully, one day have her own professional business.
