After spending almost two years in Belgium as a working student, Alexandra returned home, bringing with her a very special horse, Lucky Star, on whom she began competing as a Young Rider.

Lucky Star is by the KWPN stallion Equador by Voltaire x Ronco XX. Equador is the sire of Idocus. "Lucky", born 1993, is 17.2 hh., with tremendous work ethic and loaded with talent for upper level dressage.

With no qualifying shows for the NAYRC (North American Young Riders Champsionship) in our region, Alex and Lucky made the long trek to Ontario. By the end of the 2nd show, in Palgrave, the pair had obtained the qualifying scores necessary for representing Canada at the NAYRC in Chicago, August 10-15, 2004.

As part of Canada's only dressage team at the 2004 N.A.Y.R.C. in Chicago, Illinois, Alexandra and her teamates captured the Team Silver Medal. Alexandra went on to compete individually, finishing 8th place overall.

As a result of their scores in 2004, Alexandra and Lucky Star were long-listed on the national team for 2005. Alex and Lucky Star, shown above, warming up before a test at the NAYRC, with personal coach, Susan Fraser, and with fellow team mates of Canada's team, winning the Silver Medal.

Alexandra demonstrated her kur with Lucky Star at the 2004 Maritime Fall Fair.

In 2009, Alexandra, with Lucky Star, was the first rider in North America to debut in the new Young Rider Grand Prix class for riders ages 16 to 25 years old.

With continued training, Alex and Lucky Star went on to successfully compete at the regular Grand Prix level in the CDI ring.
