Our Instructors

Alaina Webster BHSAI.

Alaina has vast experience originally working in Hunting, Showing and Racing yards. In 1990 she started Eventing and worked for Paul Rigby. Alaina herself evented her own horse up to Novice level but unfortunately injury prevented them from going any further in Eventing, so she continued to compete in Dressage. She worked for Event rider Paul Rigby for 10 years where she trained other students and horses from Novice to International level. She groomed for Paul at prestigious events such as Badminton and Burghley.
In 2000 Alaina moved to Clevedon where she continued to train Horses and Riders predominantly for the dressage phase of Eventing. She was also competing several other horses at this time. One of these horses was Bronze Blade where they won and were constantly placed at advanced medium level cumulating in a win at the Pet Plan Championships at Hartbury with Bronze Blade at the age of 21.
Alaina moved to freelance instructing in 2006 so she could do more training and Judging. At present Currently Alaina is on the BD Trainers database and is a Trainee BD judge.
