Hannah Lydotes of Fairfield Equine Services

Hannah Lydotes

Client Services Representative

Hannah grew up in North Reading, Massachusetts. Despite no one in her family being involved in horses she fell in love with them when she discovered The Saddle Club at age 9. Her grandmother gifted her a month of riding lessons and the rest is history. She got her first horse Duke when she turned 16 and he’s gone everywhere with her since.

She attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she studied Equine Management and Sustainable Food and Farming. It was here that she fell in love with foaling, and a spicy filly named Kit who was born at the UMASS Hadley farm.  When life turned upside down in 2020 and school became fully online, Hannah decided to pursue her passion for young horses and moved to Maryland where she finished her Bachelors degree remotely.

She spent two and half years working at Hilltop Farm Inc where she became the Broodmare and Young horse Assistant Manager.  When she’s not with her horses or boyfriend, you can find her with her two bunnies Petunia and Pixie Pop, baking or singing.
