Liz Halliday is a unique sportswoman. Originally from California, she is now primarily based in Ocala, Florida, and Lexington, Kentucky, and has dedicated her life to the pursuit of two international sporting careers.
On the one hand, she is an international three-day eventer who has competed successfully at CCI5* level, while on the other she’s formerly a professional racing driver in sportscar and GT endurance disciplines. Liz is also an experienced TV broadcaster and presenter and has worked with numerous different channels and companies in both the US and Europe.
For the past twenty years, Liz split her time between the UK and USA which helped her to create a successful business producing and selling horses, as well as providing an opportunity to compete and train in both Europe and America. Now she is lucky to be based full-time in the United States, with two equestrian bases in the USA: Blue Fox Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, and Horsepower Equestrian in Ocala, Florida.
Over the last few years, Liz has enjoyed wins and top results up to the CCI5* level of Eventing competition across both continents. Those results have helped her to become an established member of the US Equestrian Eventing High Performance Training List for many years. She has represented the USA in multiple Nations Cup Teams, was reserve for both of the most recent World Equestrian Games and the Pan American Games, was selected for the 2020 Olympic Team as well as the 2020 US Eventing Rider of the Year (first female to do so since 1981) and was selected to be a part of Team USA for the 2023 Pan American Games where she was a key part of helping the US win a silver medal. With a strong team of horses in the barn and the most international wins in the WORLD for the past 3 years running (2020-2022), Liz is very excited for the future.
