Erin Alberda suffers from a rare form of ataxia, a movement disorder, but this has not stopped her from becoming among the most decorated athletes actively competing in the sport of para-dressage today.

She placed third at the 2006 USEF Para Equestrian National Championship at the USET Foundation Dressage Festival of Champions presented by Paul Miller, Inc. Also in 2006, she helped the U.S. win team Gold at the Pacific Rim International CPEDI4*.

In 2007, Alberda earned a top ranking in Grade II and was on the long list for the 2008 Paralympic Games.

In the spring of 2008, Erin had her eligibility re-instated as Grade III.

Riding Delectari, Alberda was fourth in the 2009 Cavalor/USEF National Para-Equestrian Dressage National Championships and second in the Grade III CPDEI3*.
2010 started well for Alberda. In May she won the WindReach CPEDI3* riding Collo 5.

At the USEF Selection Trial/National Championship for the US Para-Equestrian Team for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games riding Delectari, Alberda scored a 67.583% in the Freestyle to claim fifth place. Alberda completed her 2010 season by representing the U.S. at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY.

In 2011, Alberda finished second in the Grade III Team event and won the Freestyle and Individual Championship at the NEDA Fall Dressage Festival on Pavalina. She traveled to Australia in  December to sweep the CPEDI 3* Grade III classes at Werribee on Outhern Cross Tamaris to end the season on an spectacular note.
