Raised on a small cattle farm in Whidbey Island, Washington, Adrienne Lyle has always spent time around horses. She originally rode western, then switched to English at age seven. She tried eventing before dressage became her calling. Lyle began competing at 13 years old. She was a member of the silver medal team at the 2002 Cosequin Junior Dressage Championships and the bronze medal Region 6 team at the 2004 North American Young Rider Championships. Lyle has trained with Olympic dressage rider Debbie McDonald. Career highlights include competing in the 2012 Olympic Games in London and contributing to a fourth-place team finish at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in France. 2018 was a banner year for Lyle and her mount Salvino, with a string of wins at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, including a breathtaking victory in the Nations Cup Grand Prix Freestyle CDIO3* to cap the season. The pair qualified for the World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018, where they helped the U.S. team win the team silver medal. Lyle and Salvino are back in action this season in Wellington.
