A Bit About Lynnette
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. 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.
Two time US Dressage Finals Grand Prix Freestyle Champions Lynnette Wadsworth and her horse, Wietze G Lynnette Wadsworth and Wietze G won the Adult Amateur Grand Prix Freestyle Championship for 2016 at U.S. Dressage Finals in Lexington, KY. Lynnette designed the Freestyle using a symphonic version of a medley of songs by “Queen”. In November 2017, Lynnette won her second national title with Wietze G. This time she wanted something really fun so she used rock music from AC/ DC, Aerosmith, U2, and Van Halen.
