Have A Question?
Alana has been riding since she was two years old and began competing in Hunter/Jumpers at the age of six. In 1991, at the age of 13, Alana bought a 5 year old Thoroughbred/Quarter horse named Sunny and began eventing him at Novice. Alana and Sunny quickly rose through the levels, completing many Preliminary and CCI* competitions throughout California, Oregon and Arizona. At this time she was training extensively with many well-known and highly respected trainers including Don Sachey, Yves Sauvignon, Tina Steward, Chris Scarlett, and Paula Lacey. In 1997 Alana and Sunny started competing at Intermediate level throughout the west coast. In 1998 Alana and Sunny were chosen to represent Area VI at the North American Young Riders Championships at the 2 Star Level Three Day event in Colorado (NAYRC CCI** Junior Olympic recognized). Unfortunately, Sunny was injured while traveling to Colorado and was unable to compete at the event.
Alana has shifted her focus to starting young horses, addressing problem horses, and giving lessons. In 2006 she formally started SunFire Equestrian Training. For the last 11 years Alana has been focusing on rehabbing, retraining, and reselling off the track thoroughbreds (OTTBs). She prides herself ion restarting them correctly with confidence to go into any discipline they show the talent for. Along with trusted track connections to ensure the horse is suitable, she also has an uncanny knack for pairing both horses and riders to ensure a perfect match.
Alana also provides cross country schooling, show coaching, and assistance with buying and selling.
