AT just 14, Alexandra Toft can lay claim to a travel history to make even the most adventurous of backpackers jealous.
Welcome to the life of an equestrian globetrotter and in this case, a Marburg teenager who is quickly treading the same path as her world championship gold-medal winning parents.
Alexandra rattles off the countries she has visited like the places you stop over on a weekend drive.
There's Italy and the United Arab Emirates from the time her parents Peter and Penny Toft were regulars on the international equestrian scene.
Most recent was a two-week sojourn to Hungary in September when Alexandra competed in her first World Youth and Junior Endurance Championship.
Up against competitors as old as 21, Alexandra surpassed even the loftiest of expectations to complete the challenging 120km course in 17th position.
"Definitely going to Hungary has been the highlight ... it was amazing," Alexandra said.
