Q and A with Alexa
I first fell in love with Dartmouth when I witnessed how genuinely passionate the students and alums were about the school and their personal endeavors. The enthusiasm and curiosity of the community fit what I was looking for in a college, so I always feel at home when I am on campus.
How long have you been riding and what got you interested in riding?
I have been riding since I was five. My mom also grew up with horses and currently runs our stable back home. My whole family has been very supportive in encouraging me to travel and compete during high school, and I was lucky to spend time as a working student for a great coach.

I went skydiving for my 18th birthday.
