Behind the Scenes with Show Jumping Royalty Edwina Alexander-Tops

This Australian show jumping phenom was featured on EuroSport last year. It’s like Beyonce’s Life is But a Dream documentary. BUT BETTER.

In it, we get a behind the scenes peak at her relationship with husband, Olympian and Global Champions Tour president Jan Tops. Complete with guest appearances by show jumping royalty Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA) and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum (GER). And actual royalty Charlotte Casiraghi (MC)  and HRH Haya al Hussein (JO). (Spoiler: they lead a glamorous life.)

We learn that Alexander, like her famous mount Itot du Chateau, “fight till they die” to win in the show ring. (FYI: it works.)


Sometimes with an epic save like this.

And that she has pretty hair. Plus a bunch of other stuff. Watch the full documentary here. (Despite what YouTube says, it’s only 23 minutes long.)

Go Edwina! Go riding!
