Heels Down Happy Hour Episode 15: The Great Underwear Debate

 

 Alex Welles is a 25-year-old amateur show jumper who is as passionate about NFL football as she is horses. She grew up in Huntington, N.Y., and graduated from Florida Atlantic University while competing in Wellington, which is now her “home” for six months of the year. She has two dogs named Maizy and Crouton, and travels with the show circuit circus alongside her professional grand prix riding husband, Andrew.
