Hi! Welcome to my site! I'm Alanna Clarke - a 19 year old British Dressage Youth rider and Social Media influencer based in South Yorkshire.
I compete in British Dressage with my beautiful Golden Girl (Ella) and the handsome 5yo Bluewood Donaustern (Star) and I'm trained by Gill Liggins, who is just incredible.
Ella has uveitis and despite losing one eye has gone from being just backed to qualifying for the Winter Championships at Medium in 2021 in 3 years. We were selected for the 2020/21 British Dressage Foundation Academy and from there due to our commitment and development for the prestigious Sport England funded National Academy!
We have qualified for the winter regionals at Medium again in 2022 I'm very excited and hope to continue developing with Ella as she's so talented. Watch this space!
Star was backed last year and restarted in 2022 and is due to make his BD debut in September, so stay tuned for updates
Finally there's Dave, Dave aka Bluewood Donaukrieger is a 3yo trakehner gelding, Star's younger brother. I backed Dave this week and I'm so excited to see how he goes on after a winter turned away. I'm sure it will be a rollercoaster mixing Uni, young horses and work!
As well as competing, I spend a lot of my time on social media, working with great brands, check out my supporters page for more details. I have social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok with over 170,000 followers between them. I love trying to see the funny side of riding and also I promote my favourite things or share my day to day ups and downs with my followers...
I hope you enjoy the site!
