Hi! Welcome to my site! I'm Alanna Clarke - a 19 year old British Dressage Youth rider based in South Yorkshire. I compete in British Dressage with my beautiful Golden Girl (Ella) and the handsome 4yo Donaustern (Star) and I'm trained by Gill Liggins, who is just incredible.
Ella has uveitis and despite having very little vision left in one eye has gone from being just backed 3 years ago to qualifying for the Winter Championships at Medium this year. We were selected for the 2020 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, and were again selected for the 2021 Foundation Academy and have just done our first Advanced Mediums qualifying for the Pet Plan Area Festivals. I'm very excited and hope to continue developing with Ella as she's so talented. Watch this space!
Star was backed earlier this year and after a summer holiday is busy being restarted I hope to have him out competing early next year, so stay tuned for updates. 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 140,000 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!
