“I love this horse, who is alert and full of quality. He wants to jump round and is reaching forward with his head and neck…. This horse has a classic front end, perfectly tight and even, and he is giving the jump plenty of air”.
-George Morris commenting on Hawk in the 2010 Practical Horseman Jumping Clinic


Hawk was purchased in 1999 from an auction. Cynthia and her “slaughter pony” have enjoyed a variety of activities throughout the
hawk triangle years. They have
ridden on the beach, in the mountains and even in a parade. The pair foxhunted regularly with The Triangle Hunt while in North Carolina and competed in Hunter Paces.

They first ventured into the show ring in 2001 at the Johnston County Open Horse Show Series, competing in Walk/Trot, Go As You Please and Hunter Over Fences classes. Cynthia and Hawk completed their first Beginner Novice horse trial in 2002 and their first Preliminary Level horse trial in 2005.

Hawk and Cynthia competed in horse trials in numerous states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Maryland, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. They earned Performance Horse Registry Zone Training Level Silver Stirrup Horse of the Year in 2003, 2004 and 2005 and have earned countless USEA Affiliate Associaton Horse of the Year Awards.

hawk sherah

Mister Hawk’s next student was Sherah Kelly. Sherah is a dressage afficianado who was just learning to jump. They earned Groundpole and Crossrail Championships at their only jumping competition. Unfortunately, real life and real health interfered with Sherah’s riding goals and the partnership ended more abruptly than anticipated. Sherah was heartbroken to have to let him go, but was happy that he could move on to teach another young jumper.
