The Hanneford Family
Circus Ring Of Fame
In the history of equestrian performing arts, the bareback riding Hannefords have long been pre-eminent. They began performing some 300 years ago in their native Ireland. Succeeding generations of the family have carried on the Hanneford tradition of presenting bareback riding with outstanding skill and grace to the acclaim of countless circus audiences.
