Growing up on a ranch in southern California, Hannah Selleck fell in love with horses at an early age. Now an accomplished show jumping competitor, Selleck competes successfully at the grand prix level.
Selleck got her start in the show ring at the age of 10 and during her junior career won team silver medals at both the 2005 Prix des States Junior Jumper National Championship in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and in the Junior division of the 2006 North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) in Lexington, Virginia. In 2007, Selleck was named the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) Hunt Medal Finals Reserve Champion and the following year won the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals – West. Returning to the 2008 edition of the NAJYRC in Parker, Colorado, Selleck won individual and team gold medals in the Young Rider division and also earned the style of riding award.
Today, Selleck competes in both the hunter and jumper rings for Meredith Herman’s Burgundy Farms of Petaluma, California, while also showing her own horses and operating Descanso Farm. Selleck has earned numerous top-10 finishes in international show jumping competition, including a win in the $38,000 CSI2* Canadian Pacific Grand Prix at the 2015 Longines Masters of Los Angeles aboard her top horse, the Oldenburg mare, Barla.
In addition to pursuing equestrian success, Selleck is passionate about making a difference and serves as an ambassador for Brooke USA, a charity dedicated to improving the welfare of horses, donkeys, and mules in the developing world.
