BEHIND THE BRAND
Edwina Tops Alexander
Born on March 29th, 1974, Edwina Top-Alexander’s interest in equestrianism began in her hometown of Sydney, Australia, at the age of eight. Her neighbours owned a barn and seeing them ride at the weekend stimulated young Edwina’s interest in the sport. From a grounded upbringing, Edwina has gone on to become not only the most decorated Australian female equestrian athlete of all time but one of the highest-ranking female riders in the world - with four Olympic Games to her track record and millions of Euros in prize money earned throughout her impressive career.
In 1998 Edwina moved to Europe to pursue her goals. Married to the renowned Jan Tops (the founder of Global Champions Tour) since 2011, Edwina has openly said that her husband is not only her biggest supporter but also the most importance influence in her career.
In 2017 Edwina announced her pregnancy in style... immediately after winning one of the most challenging Grand Prix events in the world - the Saut Hermès. She now balances her career, motherhood and designing and creating fine jewelry inspired by her horse of a lifetime, Itot du Chateau, also known as TOTI.
