Hayley Wall is a young equestrian athlete who has been making waves in the world of primary show jumping. With two talented horses in her stable, Black Layce and Diehard Deva, she has been competing in various interschool show jumping competitions across Queensland, consistently clinching top positions.
Hayley competes in different height categories depending on the horse she is riding. Black Layce is her go-to horse for the 60cm, 70cm, and 80cm classes, while Diehard Deva takes on the 80cm and 90cm classes.
In 2023, Hayley kicked off the competition season with the Scotts interschool show jumping at Warwick, where she rode Black Layce to secure the Reserve Champion title. She went on to compete at the Qsec Widebay show jumping at Caboolture, where she rode Black Layce to clinch the Champion title. The Victory College interschool show jumping at Gympie saw Hayley competing on both horses. She rode Diehard Deva in the bigger heights category and emerged as the champion, while Black Layce once again helped her clinch the champion title in the 70cm class. Hayley also secured the overall highest points primary champion title at the event.
At the Glennie interschool show jumping at Warwick, Hayley competed on Diehard Deva and emerged as the champion in the 80cm and 90cm classes, earning her the overall OTT Primary champion title as well. Black Layce also put in an impressive performance to win the champion title in the lower height category. At the Fairholme interschool show jumping at Pittsworth, Hayley rode Diehard Deva to the champion title, while Black Layce once again helped her win the champion title in the lower height category.
In the SEQ interschool show jumping at QSEC Caboolture, Hayley could not place as it was out of her competitive region district. However, she put in an impressive performance, riding both horses and having the fastest round on both of them.
Apart from these interschool competitions, Hayley also competed at the pony club states in April, where she rode Black Layce and won the 12 years and under champion title in the 70cm class.
Looking ahead, Hayley is preparing for the interschool states in Toowoomba, which will take place during the June-July holidays. She will be competing on both of her horses, hoping to continue her impressive winning streak. With her talent, hard work, and dedication, Hayley Wall is a rising star in the world of primary show jumping, and we can expect to see more great performances from her in the future.
