Blue Bloods star Tom Selleck raised his daughter away from Hollywood. And Hannah came to love horses growing up on a huge California ranch.
She’s an incredible horsewoman, as evidenced by her performance this week at the Showpark Summer Classic. She and her horse, Rumple, did some incredible jumping.
The only daughter of the Blue Bloods star posted on Instagram: “Rumple starting out the bronze tour blenheim equisports taking (a silver medal) in the 1.35m.”
And here’s the video of Hannah and Rumple.
Blue Bloods Star Moved Family to Southern California Ranch
Tom Selleck and his wife, Jillie, moved to a 65-acre ranch in Ventura, Calif., in 1988, the year Hannah was born. Magnum P.I. was ending and Selleck still was decades away from Blue Bloods.
Little Hannah started taking riding lessons at age 4. After all, the family ranch was home to several horses, including some who retired from the movies. She started training at the Foxfield Riding School in nearby Westlake Village.
Hannah said that her parents always encouraged her to follow her passion. That’s why she now spends time on both coasts, depending on the season. In late winter, early spring, she’s in Florida. During the rest of the year, she’s in southern California. She’s been competing since she was 14.
“Because (my parents are) both artists, they believe in the idea that you have to be very passionate about what you do to be successful,” Hannah told Equestrian Living Magazine. “They encouraged me to be passionate about it and immersed in it, and from there it was kind of on me how much I wanted it. They always let me take the lead. If I wanted to move barns or trainers, that was my decision.”
Hannah Selleck Started Horse Farm in 2010
Hannah started Descanso Farm in 2010. The farm currently is the home of five horses, including Rumple.
“With all of our young horses, it’s an incredible feeling when you get to see them start going under saddle and jumping and really witnessing their future potential,” Hannah Selleck said. “It wasn’t so tangible until I started riding them. Once the first one started showing, then I realized, ’Okay, this is real. We’re going to have a lot of horses coming up.’
A source close to the Blue Bloods star told Closer Weekly that Selleck is very close to both his children. He also has a son, Kevin, with his first wife.
“Tom rides horses and spends time with [Hannah],” the family insider told Closer Weekly. “She’s a lovely young lady.”
Hannah Selleck stocks her Instagram account with all sorts of horse photos. And her followers love the pictures and video clips. They also loved applauding Rumple
One wrote: “Congratulations. He is such a beauty. You two look like magic together.”
Another said: “I really enjoy following you on IG. You are such an amazing equestrian girl, but also so ridiculously humble and pretty. Keep being so adorable and awesome.”
And another fan replied, “Congrats. Rumple looks pleased and you look beautiful.”
