"When you walk with purpose, you collide with destiny." - Bertice Berry
Alexandra Brooks Dressage offers a boutique style training program that allows Alex to focus more attention to each horse and rider. Instilling confidence and correct basics in every pair is of the utmost importance. If you can nail your basics, everything else comes that much easier. Alex provides clear, concise and structured lessons specified to each individual horse and rider for where they are at in their training and development. She believes there is no cookie cutter approach to training and each horse is their own individual. One of her greatest joys in training and teaching is finding the right form of communication for each partnership.
"My goal in my training and teaching is for my students to feel that their lessons and training give them the tools to be better riders and trainers to their own horses, especially when I'm not there to help".
Alex strongly believes in taking opportunities to expand her own knowledge and continues to grow as an individual and trainer. She works closely with Jessica Wisdom on a monthly basis to help check in with her own riding and training. Attending symposiums and clinics regularly as a rider or auditor whenever she can is a large part of her continued education and desire to be the best trainer and coach she can be for her horses and riders.
In 2019 Alex was chosen for the Through the Levels Symposium with Axel Steiner (2nd level) held at Donida Farm, as well as the Cindy Ishoy Clinic (3rd level). She encourages her students to attend clinics as much as possible as she feels everyone has something to teach and learn from others. Regardless of your goals with your horse, dressage can help you reach them. Alex teaches a wide variety of horses and riders of different disciplines and enjoys working with anyone who wants to learn and grow.
As of April 2021 Alex has relocated from Spokane to the west side of Washington. She is working with Siggi Wolff of Cavallis as well as taking on a select few clients privately at Chestnut Lane Farm in Woodinville. She will continue to travel to Spokane/Pullman/Moscow on a monthly to bi-monthly basis for clinics to continue to work with East side clients.
She has ridden, worked with or draws inspiration from: Gwen Blake, Jessica Wisdom, Garyn Heidemann, Regina Agren and Robert Dover.
If you feel passionately about learning, growing as a rider and have show goals or aspirations Alex would love to connect with you to see how she can help you reach those goals!
