Hayley Parker is a South African equestrian who competes in the sport of Three Day Eventing. She holds the record for the only South African ever to win the SA Junior Eventing Champion title for three consecutive years. Winning 25 consecutive shows, this seeded her inspiration to compete in the global arena.

Twenty-five-year-old Hayley and her SA Warmblood horse, Pohlands Cuppuchino took the five month journey to the United Kingdom via a three month quarantine stint in Mauritius, with the goal of representing South Africa at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero. Hayley is currently based at The Membury Estate near Lambourn.

Hayley is proud to be the sponsored rider on the Investec South African Training Programme with Captain Mark Phillips, a world renowned equestrian and sport expert.
