Rob and Mary Hanna recently relocated from Bellarine Peninsula to Macedon Ranges, VIC, Australia, to be closer to family.

 

The Equestrian Facilities at the "new" Statene Park are currently being constructed in full swing. Statene Park has been the forefront of dressage and warmblood breeding for a long time.

Mary works full time as an equestrian coach and dressage rider, which she has done for over 35 years. She holds a Bachelor of Arts. Dip. Ed (University of Melbourne) and gives much of her time to the sport as an NCAS Level III Dressage instructor and A Level Judge.

Rob Hanna competed successfully as an eventing rider and was the Chef d’Equipe of the Australian Eventing team for the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. He was also the Chef d’Equipe for Dressage from 2000 to 2005 before taking up the same role for Eventing.

Mary is no stranger to the international stage having represented Australia at six Olympic Games, five World Equestrian Games and has been the Australian National Grand Prix Champion on seven occasions.

In 2018 Mary received one of the FEI’s most prestigious accolades, the Gold Badge of Honour. This badge recognises athletes who have been among the 15 best finishers in the Grand Prix in at least 14 CDIO competitions. This year also saw her inducted into the Equestrian Victoria Hall of Fame.

In 2020 Mary Hanna and Calanta have made history, setting a new Australian Kur Record scoring 80.145%  at the 2020 Willinga Park CDI4*. Mary’s record is also the first time an Australian has ever scored over 80%.

Together, Mary and Rob share a passion for horses and a vision to see Australian riders compete successfully nationally and internationally.
