Colorado-born Olympian Lisa Wil­cox in­vested a large por­tion of her early dres­sage ca­reer train­ing in Europe with some of the sport’s masters, in­clud­ing Her­bert Re­hbein and Ernst Hoyos. While re­sid­ing in Ger­many, she passed the pro­fes­sional horse trainer, or Bere­iter, and rid­ing-in­struc­tor, or Reitlehrer, ex­ams. She also served as the head trainer at Gestüt Vor­w­erk, one of Ger­many’s best-known Olden­burg stud farms, for seven years, rid­ing such fa­mous stal­lions as Ro­hdia­mant, Royal Di­a­mond and Rel­e­vant. She and Rel­e­vant won the in­di­vid­ual sil­ver medal at the 2003 Open Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships and earned a team sil­ver for the U.S. at the 2002 World Equestrian Games and a team bronze at the 2004 Olympics.
