Australian showjumper Edwina Tops-Alexander is preparing for her first show of the year, the Longines CSI5* in Basel, Switzerland (11-14 January). The Longines Grand Prix class takes place on the final day.

Edwina is taking California, Inca Boy van T Vianaho and Cinsey.

Since returning to the competition arena following the birth of her daughter, Edwina has enjoyed plenty of success. After placing in a World Cup event in Oslo (Norway) last October, she won the World Cup class in La Coruna (Spain) in December riding California. At London’s Olympia (also a World Cup event), she also gained a Grand Prix placing with Inca Boy to finish the year on a high.

Good luck in Basel, Edwina!
