Lauren Alexander Eventing
Lauren is a 24 year old event rider based in Riverhead, Auckland. Lauren began riding at the age of 9 after pestering her parents endlessly for riding lessons. At the age of 11 she progressed onto her first pony, Teash, who taught her to sit to a buck and bolt rather quickly, and introduced her to low level competitions. At 14, Lauren progressed onto her first hack, Pete, who helped fuel her passion for eventing and gave her the confidence to aim for higher levels.
From then on, Lauren has brought on and produced her own horses starting with BMW Ripley who she produced to right through 2* level, and together, won the ESNZ Young Rider Series for 2013/2014.
Having now produced three horses to 2* level, Lauren’s goal is to step up to 3* level this season and produce some good solid qualifying results, with aims of competing at 4* level in the future.
Lauren’s current equine team consists of:
Classic Indigo ('Indi')
10 year old black Clyde/Arab mare. Winner of CCI1* Championship and Best Performed Mare at Taupo 3DE 2016. Competing successfully at 2* level with the aim of stepping up to 3* this season.
AA Fully Loaded (‘Herbie’)
6 year old chestnut TB gelding by BattlePaint who shows immense potential and is aiming for 1* this season
8 year old chestnut TB gelding by Viking Ruler. Currently competing at CNC95, ready to step up to CNC105.

10 Quotes from Lauren about Hippo products:
Lauren Alexander - Loves Ticks Plus by Hippo Health
'Get rid of ticks super easily with Hippo Health's Tick Plus. Spray it into the horse's mouth, feed or water trough and boom! Done. All natural too! I personally love using this, especially at Puhinui which have another livestock grazing there and a huge amount of ticks. Easy peasy :)'
Lauren Alexander - SOL Plus for Sunburn and Pink Noses!!
'With 3 pink noses on the team this summer we are already starting to take precautions by popping a couple of capfuls of our Sol Plus in the troughs every week - We have NEVER had a sunburnt nose thanks to Hippo Health :)'
Lauren Alexander - Xmas all year round!
'I feel like a kid on Christmas morning when packages like these arrive! We love and use the 'Chilled Out Horse' and 'Bold and Brave' remedies regularly for competitions, Guy Fawkes or any potentially stressful situation. All remedies are completely competition safe which is fantastic ;) #spoilt'
