About Me

and the HJEq Lifestyle.

My name is Maddy Brown and I'm a professional rider and trainer, based at The Farm at One Under Lane in South Carolina. These days, I compete mostly in the jumpers with my Trakehner gelding, Topsail - better known as Arli. I also own a four-year-old OTTB named Winyah Bay (Bailey) through the Chestnut Mare Initiative, and in 2019, I purchased back my former Junior Hunter, a 21-year-old OTTB named Maritime (Sailor). 

As a junior, I rode in the hunters, equitation, and ponies, and as an amateur, I rode on the University of South Carolina NCEA equestrian team. I graduated from USC in May 2019 with a Bachelors in Mass Communications, and I have a passion for writing. HJEq Lifestyle is written for riders, by a rider. I bring my readers the viewpoint of someone's who been there, and is still working their way up. Join me on my journey!
