Anne Kursinski is a five time Olympian with two team silver medals. In 1991, the U.S. Olympic Committee voted her Female Equestrian Athlete of the Year. She won individual and team gold medals in the Caracus, Venezuela Pan-American Games. In 1988 and 1992 Anne was named AHSA Horsewoman of the Year and 1995 she was Equestrian of the Year. In 2017 she was inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame.

Anne has won nearly every major equestrian competition there is to win. Some of her major wins include the Grand Prix of Aachen, the American Invitational, the American Gold Cup, the Hampton Classic, the Grand Prix of Rome and the Gran Premio Pulsar in Monterrey, Mexico. She has ridden on 47 U.S. Nations’ Cups teams, and she has competed in 10 World Cup Finals.  Anne has been a member of 3 U.S. World Equestrian Games Teams.

Anne’s passion for the show ring and sport remains strong. Along with competing and winning with her horse Caspar’s Lasino, Anne has been very involved as a selector for U.S. Show Jumping teams.  She was a selector for the 2014 WEG bronze medal winning U.S. team in Normandy, France and the Rio Olympics’ Silver Medal Winning U.S. team. Anne was also a commentator for the 2016 $130,000 Longines FEI World Cup President’s Cup Grand Prix.

Working out of her Market Street facility in Frenchtown, N.J., Kursinski uses her great talents as a trainer and clinician to help riders achieve their goals. Anne has worked with many top riders such as Hunter Holloway, Victoria Birdsall, Katie Cox and Eventer, Matt Brown. Kursinski has been enjoying teaching clinics all over the country as well as her regular clients and students. Watching them learn and be successful is very gratifying for her. She also enjoys assisting students and professionals that ship in for lessons and meet her at the shows.

In 2015, Anne launched an online instructional site, Riding & Jumping Mentor. "The online teaching site allows me to help people who I may have not have had the opportunity to assist", said Kursinski. Location, finances and confidence are factors that can limit many amateur riders.
