Alex Johnston and her horses Derby and Athena

Alex is an Equine Canada Certified Instructor teaching in the Riding School and our Summer Camp program.  Alex brings to our riding school a passion for exemplary horsemanship, dedication to our students and their safety and a good sense of humour.

Alex has been in love with horses her entire life.  Obsessed with horses from the age of two, she began riding at the age of 6. Today, she is a skilled and talented rider. Coached by Ian Roberts, Alex is currently competing on the Ontario horse trials circuit on her young mount Derby and loves to hack on her “first” horse Athena.

She has also worked as an assistant groom for Ian at Rolex at Lexington, Kentucky and was an “official groom” at the North American Young Rider Championships in 2012.

While spare time is at a premium, baking, reading, drawing and science are among Alex’s many interests and talents.
