Meet one of Renegade Hoof Boots' stars!

June 23 2022
by Ashley Wingert

Meet Hannah Pruss and her 17-year-old Arabian gelding, Kourageus Hope, better known as “Stuart.” Hannah first started endurance riding in the late 1990’s, riding a mare named “Shazams Zhope” — Stuart’s dam. Hannah has since accrued over 7000 miles with the AERC (American Endurance Ride Conference, the governing body for endurance in the United States), a combination of both endurance (50+ mile rides) and limited distance (25-35-mile rides) rides.


“Stuart” is one of Hannah’s home-bred horses. She raised and trained him herself, and has been his only rider in Stuart’s 3000 miles of competitions. There most recent accomplishment was a 2nd place finish at the Fort Howes 100…and they were also awarded Best Condition.

Together, they are an impressive team. Just some of their accomplishments on the endurance trail include:

– 3x 1st place at the Big Horn 100– 2x Best Condition at the Big Horn 100– 2x Tevis finishers (including one Top Ten finish)– 14 100-mile completions– 18 Best Condition awards (6 of them in 100-mile rides, including the National Championship)– Decade Team– 2018 National 100-Mile Award winners
– 2x Reserve Champion and 1st Middleweight at the AERC National Championship 100

And did you know Stuart has one eye?
