Hi! Welcome to my site! I'm Alanna Clarke - a British Dressage Youth rider and Social Media influencer based in South Yorkshire. 

I compete in British Dressage with my beautiful Trakehners, 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 had so much fun this year representing England and the North & East Region at the Youth Home Internationals and at the Sheepgate Under 25 Championships where Ella put me on the poduim both times! I'm so happy and hope to continue developing with Ella as she's so talented.  Watch this space!

Star was backed last year and restarted in 2022. He made his BD debut in September, and in just 2 outings qualified for the Winter Regionals.  I'm so proud of how well he's begun and really excited for his future


Finally there's Dave, Dave aka Bluewood Donaukrieger is a rising 4yo Trakehner gelding, Star's younger brother. I backed Dave this summer and I'm looking forward 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 partnerships and social media pages for more details.  I have social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok with almost 200,000 followers between them. My posts are seen by up to 11 million people per month across the platforms. 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!
