Hannah Padgett got her start in American Saddlebreds at the early age 5 and has been showing ever since. She graduated top of her class at the University of Alabama in Huntsville with a degree in finance, which she puts to good use managing two businesses. She has ridden, worked and shown for some of the best trainers in the industry before opening her own business in 2006. Having owned and operated a semi-private stable through most of Twin Lakes early years, Hannah formally opened her doors to the public in 2015. Hannah always loved the challenge of training and uses her calm assertive nature to gain a horse’s trust and confidence. Hannah believes happy horses will give you the best of themselves willingly rather than through force. She has used this philosophy to produce multiple World, National and Regional champions and introduce hundreds of new people to the wonderful world of horses. Hannah is passionate about her horses and students and strives for excellence while keeping the horse's best interests at the forefront. She prides herself on her integrity as well as teaching her riders to have a sportsmanlike attitude when competing.
In 2017 Hannah decided to pursue her love of philanthropy and joined the Junior League of Morgan County where she has helped raise funds for worthy causes, volunteered at numerous events and helped with habitat for humanity builds. It was during this time that Hannah finally got the courage to start Hooves for Heroes, a non-profit organization for veterans with PTSD and other emotional and mental issues. She is looking forward to managing this new endeavor as well as continue to manage and train here at Twin Lakes Stable.
Hannah was awarded the 2017 American Saddlebred Horse Association Breed Ambassador Region 8 Individual Champion and Barn Reserve Champion. Hannah is a proud and active member of the United Professional Horseman's Association, American Saddlebred Horse Association, United States Equestrian Federation, American Hackney Horse Society, American Road Horse and Pony Association, and American Saddlebred Horse Association of Alabama.
