As a horse-loving child growing up in Hawaii, Allison “Ali” Brock did it all. She show jumped, rode western, took dressage lessons, and was very active in Pony Club. At 17, Brock left Hawaii for the mainland to chase her dressage dreams. She became a working student for many prominent equestrian professionals, including Olympian Sue Blinks. The time spent with Blinks helped lay the foundation in becoming a top dressage athlete.
While working with Blinks, Brock had the opportunity to learn what it takes to be an elite dressage competitor. She accompanied Blinks to the 2002 FEI World Equestrian Games and developed her first FEI horse from start to finish. She also learned training fundamentals, horsemanship, and stable management. When Blinks moved to the West Coast, Brock got a job with Fritz and Claudine Kundrun. The dressage enthusiasts decided to sponsor and develop Brock for elite competition and gave her a head trainer position at their DeerMeadow Farms.
Currently, Brock is competing the Kundruns’ stallion, Rosevelt.
