Coach Spotlight - Katie Taliana
Katie Taliana is an amazing coach who was one of the coaches at our first cross country clinic we ever ran at Camden Bicentennial Equestrian Park. Rhianna was having a great chat with Katie at one of the Camden one day events a few years back and they were discussing how they wished there was more clinics organised at Camden, Katie was super encouraging to Rhianna about getting a clinic organised and she definitely helped plant the seed that got HARA Equine up and running. We have had Katie coach at many of our clinics over the years and we hope she keeps coming back for many more. Katie is based at Wilberforce in NSW and has been riding since she was 13 and professionally since she was only 19. She has so many amazing career highlights we've listed some below:

As amazing a rider she is, her coaching is honestly second to non, we have had so many riders who come to our clinics never having had a lesson with Katie and they leave feeling inspired and feeling like they have some more tools to use when it comes to their riding. Katie inspires us because she has worked so hard for everything that she has achieved, she has worked in the UK under rider Zara Phillips and has also worked under Sharmayne Spencer in Australia. She now runs her own eventing yard with her husband and manages to compete at the top level of eventing whilst also juggling motherhood. If you want to find some inspiration for your riding career she is definitely one to mirror.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming events and make sure you subscribe to our mailing list to make sure you find out when we have Katie coaching at one of our upcoming clinics.
We can't wait to see you all again soon. . .
