Zara's Planet - Who We Sponsor
Meet Young Rider Eventer, Elizabeth Hayden!


Zara’s Planet are a proud sponsor of Irish International Eventer, Elizabeth Hayden. Elizabeth has been riding Internationally for Ireland since the age of 17. She was a double Team Gold athlete with two individual medals achieved in Juniors and Young Riders riding for Team Ireland.

Riding full time now at the 3* level with a string of top class horses, Elizabeth was based in the UK for 2017 and had a very good year including riding at the prestigious Le Lion D’angers Horse Trials as part of the Irish team. We look forward to following her progress in 2018.

Her aim is to compete in her first  4* event this year! Known to be a phenomenal cross country we have no doubt Elizabeth will reach her goal and wish her the best of luck!

We first met Elizabeth when she was still at pony club so having followed her immensely successful career to date are thrilled to support her. Elizabeth has been going on Zara’s Planet horse riding holidays for many years with her mum and dad, Joan and Martin alongside her four brothers and sisters. With such a big family, horse riding holidays are always great fun and a time to relax from her hectic training and schooling routine. Says Elizabeth:

“Dad loves to travel so I love when he drags us away from the busy yard routine at home to some interesting place far away. My favourite holiday to date was spending Christmas at Macatoo Camp in Botswana’s Okavango Delta and a close second was riding through Torres Del Paine at New Year. Zara’s Planet always manage to find somewhere we haven’t yet been to and that ticks the boxes for all the family, they are magic!”
