Since Hawley Bennett-Awad was a young kid she dreamed of representing her native country of Canada on the international stage. In 2004, aboard her long time partner Livingstone, that dream became a reality at the Athens Olympic games. Six years later, with a feisty little mare named Gin & Juice, Hawley helped earned the team silver medal for Canada at the World Equestrian Games, establishing Canada as an Eventing powerhouse on the world stage. Again in 2012, that dream of representing her country became a reality on the world’s biggest stage at the London Olympic games, and although her trip around the Olympic cross-country course was cut short in London, Hawley was thrilled to have represented her native country of Canada aboard Gin & Juice. In 2013, the well-known duo represented Canada on the international Eventing stage, first at the Rolex Kentucky CCI4*, finishing 7th overall and at the Pau CCI4*, finishing in the top 20! In 2014 Hawley and Ginny earned more international renown, including a 16th place finish at the Rolex Kentucky CCI4*, being short listed for the Canadian National Eventing Team, and being named to the Team representing Canada at the 2014 World Equestrian Games.
