Adrian Lyle and her owner, Salvino Ryder, and American Horse of the Year

In the United States Andrienne Lyle and her horse in the Grand Prix Salvino (S. Sandro Heat) was named Rider and Horse of the Year. The 38-year-old jockey received the William C. Steinkraus Award last week for her achievements at the World Championships in Herning, among other things. With Salvino, she helped Team USA get a ticket to the Games in Paris.

It’s been a good year for Adrian Lyle and Salvino. She was the best American at the World Championships in Herning with the sixteen-year-old Hanover horse. The duo advanced to freestyle where they placed sixth with a near personal best. The duo also successfully prepared for the World Championships with victories in Wellington and a second place at the Grand Prix in Aachen. After Herning, Lyle again picked up the string on the World Cup circuit with four wins in four starts.

Lyle’s talent and commitment to the future of the sport was demonstrated at the 2022 American Dressage Festival of Champions as she took home two national championships. With Fürst Dream (s. Fürstenball) Lyle won the national title in four-year-old dressage and on Valor (s. Vitalis) took gold at age five.
