Hi! Welcome to my site! I'm Alanna Clarke - an 18 year old British Dressage Youth rider based in South Yorkshire. I compete in British Dressage with my beautiful Golden Girl (Ella) and the handsome Van Halen II a KWPN gelding. 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! I'm very excited and hope to continue developing with Ella as she's so talented. Watch this space!
Halen and I had just got to PSG level and were on course for some great scores when lockdown hit, then he unfortunately injured his superficial tendon in the stable. It looks like the injury may be career ending but we're supporting him through rehab right now.
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 100,000 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!
