Equestrians seek help sending Baker teen to national horse competition

Published: Friday, March 28, 2014 at 08:25 AM.

Such efforts are worth it, as Hanna's dedication to training earned her 20 top-placing awards in Class A competitions, family members said.

"If she is willing to go out there and do what she does with the help of her trainers (Devon Smith, Daphne Whitehead, Randee Harvell and Brown), then it's the least we can do to try and help her get the money to go," said Sharon Adams, Hanna's grandmother.

Hanna has earned 10 points in Class A shows, which is enough to compete in Perry, Brown said.

And she has earned almost 100 ribbons after participating in almost 40 competitions since 2010, trainers said.

"We are going to get her there one way or the other," Whitehead said.

Hanna said she appreciates everything the center has done for her and hopes all of her hard work pays off.

"I feel like we can still do this," she said.
