Alex Hardwick

Hawkins Organic are proud to be supporting and following Alex Hardwick.

Alex's career is going from strength to strength and at 23 years old has already won a number of advanced dressage competitions and is tipped to be one of the next British dressage superstars, with her focus firmly on achieving a place to represent team GB at the Olympic Games in Rio 2016.

Alex Hardwick in her own words 

I’m 23 and my passion is horses. I live, breath and sleep them; so living with horse just outside my back door is perfect. I have been around horses all my life and couldn’t image doing anything else.



I am a key part of the running our family stable/training yard Hallingbury Hall which is near a town called Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire. I am involved in all aspects of the yard, caring for the horses, teaching customers, training our staff and making a happy environment for everyone.

I have owned all my horses from 3 year olds and have had such fun training them up the levels, its been a journey of a life time and I never want it to end.

What does Alex think of the Hawkins Organic Range ?

At last, an organic product range for my horses that I can feel good about and produces great results.

I have been using these products and my favourites so far are; Best In Show shampoo and Best Hoof Forward hoof oil.

All of the products smell incredible; the essential oils with antibacterial and cleansing properties have done wonders for my horses’ skin and coats. One of my boys suffers with very sensitive skin and easily gets a bit scabby. Within a week, after using the Best In Show shampoo, his skin was scab free and so much softer.

I highly recommend Hawkins Organic for anyone who really cares about their horse!
