Biography

Edwina Tops-Alexander

Edwina Tops-Alexander is an Olympic showjumper who competes for Australia. Married to former Dutch champion, Jan Tops, Edwina decided to move to Europe in 2006 to compete against the best riders in the world, using the Netherlands as her base for most of the year at Stal Tops Valkenswaard. In 2006, Edwina became the first rider in the history of Australia to qualify for the final of the World Championships in Aachen, where she finished a fantastic fourth.

She has had a number of Grand Prix wins, including Brussels, Valkenswaard, London, Zurich, Cannes, Geneva, Vigo and Doha, to name a few. In 2011 and 2012, she won the Global Champions Tour, which resulted in her being the highest-ranked female rider in the world rankings.

Respect others and treat people and horses the way you want to be treated; in life, you only get what you give back. This is why I choose Connolly’s RED MILLS for my horses. I want what is best for them, and for them to be fit and healthy so we can perform at our best together.
