Gladstone, New Jersey ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) A Ketchum woman is headed to Europe after a successful weekend at the 2014 US Dressage World Equestrian Games Selection Trials.

Adrienne Lyle and 15–year old Oldenburg gelding, Wizard, finished fourth overall at the USET Foundation Headquarters in Gladstone, New Jersey.

The pair finished with a combined average of 73.543 with a 76.9 in the freestyle.

Lyle is one of eight riders heading to Europe with the hopes of making the 2014 US World Equestrian Games Dressage Team.
After key European events in July, the eight will be narrowed down to four.

"It's been a dream of mine. I was able to represent our country in the London Olympics in 2012 and the World Equestrian Games is the other big, it's the pinnacle happens every four years. It's something you always strive for and work hard to be able to have the chance to represent your country and your team," adds Lyle.
