Allison has been riding horses since the age of six. The Olympic dream was something that began at an early age as well. Her family went to watch the winter Olympics at Lake Placid. That experience instilled in her how special the Olympics are and why they are every athlete’s ultimate goal. Years later, she recalls watching the Los Angeles Games on the television. It was the first time she saw her sport, three day eventing. She’d watched all the equestrian sports, but the Three-Day Event was what captured her. Destiny was hers, and she knew that was what she was going to do. From that day forward her dream and determination have never wavered. She vows that one day, she will represent our country in Olympic competition.
Based in Upperville, Virginia, Allison competes and coaches throughout the country. Recent accomplishments include: 3rd Place Fair Hill International CCI3* 2014 (Copycat Chloe), 4th Place Fair Hill CIC3* 2013 (Copycat Chloe), Named to the 2013 USEF High Performance World Class Training List, HSBC FEI Classics Series 3rd Place (Highest placing ever by an American), Named as an Alternate to the 2012 Olympic Team, Top Placing American Rolex Kentucky CCI4* 2012, 2nd Place Rolex Kentucky CCI4* 2012, 1st Place Red Hills Advanced 2012, 1st Place Red Hills CIC3* and Winner of The Mercedes Award 2011, Reserve Champion Horse of the Year 2009, 1st Place American Eventing Championships, Reserve National Championship Young Event Horse.
