After the retirement of her 2012 Olympic and 2014 World Equestrian Games partner, Wizard, some wondered what the future would hold for Adrienne Lyle. But with 8-year-old Salvino, a 2010 stallion she found in Europe as a youngster, Adrienne is anything but done. In a few weeks time, Adrienne will again ride for the United States, this time at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon.
“It’s an incredible honor to be selected for the team,” says Adrienne. “Dressage gets more competitive every year and it’s that much more challenging to make a team, and even more rewarding to be picked.
Now based in Wellington, Fla. with coach and mentor, Debbie McDonald (who will be taking over the role of US Technical Advisor when Robert Dover retires after the WEG), Adrienne is busy prepping her stunning bay partner for his first team experience.
