Biography

It will be a first Badminton for British amateur rider Alexander Bragg (36) who is based in Chilton Trinity, Somerset. Alex, a professional farrier, completed his first four-star last year at Burghley (34th Redpath Ransom) and then took 5th place at Pau with Zagreb.

Alex grew up with horses and enjoyed success as a child in pony club mounted games before concentrating on showjumping. Aged 16 he took a break from riding but continued to work with horses and then began training as a farrier. He qualified with distinction and started his own business. Through his job he met Simone – now his wife – who gave him his first insight into eventing and Alex then began to ride and compete again.

With Simone, Alex runs Team Bragg and the couple has three daughters Ellouise, Sienna and Florence.
