Lynnette is an amateur dressage rider who has earned her USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medals, as well as the Bronze, Silver and Gold freestyle bars. She is competing at the Grand Prix level. Lynnette obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in dance, and taught for 25 years in the private sector as well as the public school system. She has choreographed everything from modern dance pieces performed for college dance festivals to local musical theater productions. It seemed only natural when she became involved with horses, that it would lead to dancing with horses.
Freestyles Lynnette designed include the 2008 crowd pleasing 3rd level pas de deux, “Born to be Wild” for which she and her partner Mary O’Brien were ranked 2nd in the nation. In 2009, Lynnette performed another pas de deux with Lynn Jendrowski titled “Hair”, and won the Morven Park freestyle challenge in Leesburg , VA. She has won the Friesian Horse Association of North America’s year end breed award for freestyles consecutively from third level through Grand Prix.
The USEF has stated that Lynnette can legally compete as an amateur and maintain a freestyle business as she does not train or ride clients’ horses nor give lessons.
