Hayden Clarke Sport Horses hosted its annual open house Sunday, May 28. The long-running community event showcased riding school students and A circuit riders in team competitions ranging from flat classes to a Gambler’s Choice jumping and a High Jump that rose to about 4’6” in height. Plus, pony rides and horsey crafts throughout a beautiful day at the Nellie Gail Equestrian Center in Orange County’s Laguna Hills.

Hayden Clarke Sport Horses is the new name for Hayden Show Jumping, reflecting the fact that, as of January, Mickey Hayden’s long time Grand Prix rider Lane Clarke is now a full-fledged partner in the business.

Pony Rides!


Lady Lambada arrived at Hayden Show Jumping as an 8-year-old import. She’s going strong at 27 and happy to greet visitors, especially when there’s a carrot involved!
