Alexzandra Houldcroft

‘We are delighted to announce Alexzandra as our Rising Star winner for April to June 2018. Alexzandra and her horse, Cavallina impressed us with their dedication, hard work and results. We look forward to working with her in the future’.

Alexzandra is a 22 year old Dressage rider from the West Midlands and a trainee veterinary nurse. Cavallina is a 7 year old Hanoverian Chestnut Mare by Cardinar and was bred by Paul Friday. Being backed at the age of 5 years, in November 2016 the pair are now currently competing at Prelim/Novice and have just qualified for the summer regionals at Prelim level.

Alexzandra said “we have just done our first Novice tests & have gained enough sheets to compete at the Pet Plan Area Festival First Round, we are also in the process of getting our music together so we can try and gain points for the Winter Music regionals”.

Alexzandra’s story:

‘I am 22 years old and am just coming to the end of my first year as a student veterinary nurse. I have been competing at dressage for many years with my welsh cob x and have had some wonderful success such as winning the BRC Intermediate Championships in 2015/2016 and the BRC NAF National Open Championships in 2016 with my team mate from Stoneleigh Riding Club. I have also represented my Pony Club at the Dengie Dressage Championships where we finished 3rd overall.

The past 12 months have been amazing with my new horse, after attending two rounds at the Pet Plan Area’s we received a wildcard to go to the Championships in April at Hartpury. We weren’t expecting this as it was her first major competition and there were over 40 in the class. Cavallina was amazing, I couldn’t of asked more for her, her transitions were still a little green, but we smashed our personal best & scored 70% to finish 5th.

Since the winter we have qualified for Trailblazers by winning my class at Fieldhouse Equestrian, gained our qualifying points for the Prelim Summer Regional’s. We very recently moved up to novice and after two outings we got our qualifying sheets to attend the first rounds of Pet Plan.

My goals this year are to try and win a regional title & qualify for the Pet Plan Finals again at the next level (Novice).
