Alex is a 17 year old dressage rider from Bakewell, Derbyshire and has trained with Sonia Baines since she was eight years old. 2014 was the third year on the British pony squad; her first year was with her previous pony ‘Dublin’ and the past two years have been with Clare Williams’ pony Der Kleine Lord who she was given the ride on.
She was a member of the 2014 Silver Medal winning team at the European Championships in Millstreet Ireland, and the individual Bronze Medalist. Since Lordy has now moved onto new owners Alex is now concentrating on her horse Uvender V (Uvi), who is a 12 year old gelding. As it stands in 2015, Alex is the third ranked in the FEI Youth Dressage World Rankings which is an astonishing achievement. In 2016, she was selected to represent Great Britain at the 2016 European Junior and Young Riders Championships held in Oliva Nova, Spain on 19 – 24 July 2016.
