Connecticut native Adrienne Sternlicht, 25, has watched her U.S. rankings climb to no 6 and elevate her to the short list for the FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC this fall. Trained by McLain Ward, Adrienne’s ‘once in a lifetime’ partner is the 10 year old mare Cristalline; a ride she acquired from Australian Chris Chugg two years ago. Together they notched up a career highlight by winning a 1.50m class at the Knokke CSI5* earlier this month. Adrienne is campaigning her three top horses in Europe this summer; the other two being Toulago and Fantast who are also on form and raising Adrienne’s profile as she prepares for the final USEF Observation Trial in Dublin before heading back to the States. Still riding as an amateur Adrienne graduated from Brown University and has other goals outside of the show jumping arena which she shares with us. And we hear how she prepares mentally and physically for big competitions. Chris Stafford caught up with Adrienne at her base in Belgium before she heads to the Longines CSI Ascona in Switzerland.
