Hattie was known as “La Reina de la Fiesta”, or “Queen of the Fiesta” for her enduring presence atop her horse in the annual Fiesta parade for 86 years.  Hattie was honored as Grand Marshal three times with the last time being in 2011 at 100 years young.  A consummate horsewoman, Hattie went on 50 spring treks of riding and camping with the Sage Hens, the ladies equivalent of the men’s Ranchero Visitadores.  In 2003 the Santa Ynez Historical Society named Hattie “Vaquera of the Year”.  As a young adult she gave riding lessons to children on the lower east side of Santa Barbara and later raised horses.
