Bald Cypress Equestrian is operated by a young and enthusiastic instructor, Hannah Balas. Hannah has been riding since she was 5 years old and has excelled in the hunter/jumper show community. Hannah began riding at a barn which instilled horsemanship and a strong classical dressage foundation, which she passes onto her students today. Hannah began showing in the hunter ring at age 12, where she eventually worked at a sale barn training young horses. Hannah has had the opportunity to train horses from all different backgrounds and experience levels, transforming them into competitive show horses. Hannah’s passion is in the jumper ring where she has competed and placed at shows including Capital Challenge, WEF, USHJA Zone 3 Finals, Zone 3 Jumper Team Championship, and many more. Hannah has trained with riders/trainers to include George Morris, Patty Stovel, Jim Wofford, Joe Fargis, and Frank Madden, who she trained with while in Florida. Hannah Balas opened Bald Cypress Equestrian in 2019 with her Husband Tyler in Salisbury Maryland and has since moved to Howard County.
