Beyond that, she has also volunteered at winter shows.
Hoonhout herself is a para-equestrian Grade IB rider who riders Amarante, who has competed at several events inside New Zealand including the nationals. Outside of sports, she is a student at the University of Auckland where she is studying international business and information systems.
