Alexander Grayton - Owner and Director
Alexander's entry into the horse world came at an early age when he and his older sister began taking riding lessons at a local stable in Calgary - Teesdale Riding School.
Over the course of his childhood, Alexander participated in many other sports and activities, especially hockey and tennis, before ultimately turning his focus towards show jumping near the end of his high school years.
After graduating from the University of Calgary with a B.Sc in Oil & Gas Engineering in 2006, Alexander began his post-secondary education in show jumping. He trained with celebrated Alberta horseman Frank Selinger for several years as he gained experience training young horses and riding his first Grand Prix classes.
Alexander spent a year training with top American rider Kyle King before spending a year in the Millar Brook Farm system riding with Canadian legend Ian Millar. During his time with Ian, the focus on training and preparation was solidified as a major component of Alexander's philosophy. It was also through Ian that Alexander met Emile and Paul Hendrix - world renowned Dutch horsemen - who continue to be partners and mentors to Alexander.
Over the past several years, Alexander has developed horses into elite horses for sport, including a National Talent Squad Finals title, Nationl Young Horse Champion, Hunter champions and numerous Grand Prix and International victories.
Alexander has trained riders of all levels - from entering their first horse show to winning Talent Squad Finals, FEI Childrens Finals, International Grand Prix and every spot in between.
Alexander's competitive aspirations include representing Team Canada in Nations Cup and Championship competitions.
