Australian jumping legend Edwina Tops-Alexander has been off the competition scene for a while and for very good reason. On July 30 she became a mother for the first time.
Just over a month after Chloé’s arrival, Edwina is now back in the saddle and ready to return to the arena.
We caught up with Edwina for a quick update ahead of her likely return to competition at the International Longines Horse Show of Lausanne that begins on September 14.
What are your plans for returning to the saddle?
“I started riding one week ago. Now I’m up to riding four a day. I made a few jumps yesterday which felt great.”
When do you think you will be ready to compete again?
“My plan is in 10 days to compete in the Lausanne 5 star but just the other classes to prepare me for Rome the following weekend.”
