Born and raised in a small town in Washington, horses have always been a part of Adrienne Lyle’s life. Beginning in the United States Pony Club, and growing up with only occasional group riding lessons, Lyle first had the opportunity to ride with her future coach and Olympian Debbie McDonald as a working student in 2005. In 2006, Lyle earned the ride on Wizard, the 1999 Oldenburg gelding, owned by Peggy and Parry Thomas. The combination would move to the Grand Prix level together and win numerous prestigious titles, including the 2008 USEF Young Adult ‘Brentina Cup.’ Lyle is a valuable member of The Dutta. Corp. U.S. Dressage Team, competing on several nations cup teams in the last several years. In 2018, she was selected to her second WEG team after competing on all three U.S. Dressage Nations Cup teams, helping the U.S. earn gold at FEI Dressage Nations Cup USA, bronze at FEI Dressage Nations Cup The Netherlands, and silver at FEI Dressage Nations Cup Germany. 2018 highlights for Lyle and Salvino included a win in the CDI3* Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special at the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival, as well as the CDI5* Grand Prix Special. Then again at AGDF, they would go on to win the CDIO3* Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special, and the Grand Prix Freestyle to Music.
