Alan has served on both the Zone 4 hunter and jumper committees and as the Zone 4 Chef de’Quip for the Prix de States and Young Riders teams.
He has won countless riding titles and championships, including 4 FJL Rider of the Year titles, a team gold medal at the 1990 Olympic Festival, and over 100 career Grand Prix placings in classes with prize money in excess of $25,000.
