Liz Halliday-Sharp is a unique sportswoman. Originally from California, she is now primarily based in East Sussex, England, and has dedicated her life to the pursuit of two international sporting careers.
On the one hand she is an international three-day eventer who has competed at CCI4* level, while on the other she’s a professional racing driver in sportscar and GT endurance disciplines. Liz is also an experienced TV broadcaster and presenter, and has worked with numerous different channels and companies in both the US and Europe.
After many years of appearing in both sports simultaneously Liz recently began dedicating more time to her eventing pursuits, with the ultimate ambition of one day representing the USA at the Olympic Games, Pan American Games and World Championships.
Liz is lucky to now have equestrian bases in both the UK and USA. Chailey Stud Equestrian Centre in East Sussex and Horsepower Equestrian in Ocala, Florida, have helped her to create a successful business producing and selling horses, as well as providing an opportunity to compete and train in both Europe and America. Indeed, over the last few years Liz has enjoyed wins and top results up to and in three-star level competitions across both continents, helping her to become an established member of the USEF High Performance Training List.
