Idaho's Adrienne Lyle had a good day at the Dressage National Championships on Saturday—good enough that she and her horse Wizard are expected to be named to the U.S. Olympic Team. Lyle, who trains and teaches in Ketchum, and Wizard, a 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding, finished fourth overall in the Dressage, with a four-day score of 72.558 percent. While fourth place puts her out of the team competition, she and Wizard should be able to compete in London in the individual competition.
The 27-year-old Lyle won three straight Grand Prix victories in 2011 aboard Wizard. She was trained by 2004 Olympic bronze medalist Debbie McDonald, who lives in Hailey, ID.
