Although Lendon rode warmbloods in her two Olympics, the world Championships, and the World Cup her ponies held a special place in her heart. They proved to the world the bigger isn't necessarily better.
This experience also gave Lendon direction to encourage those without the fanciest horses, trainers, greatest opportunities to be "the best that you can be".

I am a native of Colorado Springs. I graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in advertising and marketing. Riding Western and hunters from an early age, I was actually named the “Girl of the West” for the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo in 1973!
My interest in dressage started when I lived in Oxford, England, and I passed several British Horse Society Instructor Exams. As a rider, I won my USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals. I am currently an FEI “I” judge, USEF “S” dressage judge, and an USEF Sporthorse “R” breeding judge. I have judged at all major shows in the United States, including the FEI North American Young Rider Championships, the FEI North American Junior Championships, the USA World Cup League Finals, the FEI North American Championships, Dressage at Devon, and USET Festival of Champions, as well as FEI shows in California, Illinois, Arizona, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, Colorado, Florida, Washington, and North Carolina.
I have also judged national championships and CDI***/W in Guatemala, England, Colombia, Costa Rica, Barbados, Canada, Poland, Australia, and Mexico, as well as the FEI World Cup League Finals for the United States, Canada, and Australia. I was on the panel that selected the USA team for 2004 Athens, the 2006 WEG, the 2007 Pan American Games, 2008 Beijing and the 2010 WEG. I was appointed by the FEI to judge the 2010 Central American Caribbean Games in Puerto Rico.
I passed the FEI Exam to be a young horse judge, and I have judged the USEF Young Horse and Developing Horse Championships several times. I am currently an apprentice FEI Technical Delegate, and a member of the Federation Dressage Committee, the International High Performance Dressage Committee, and the USDF “L” Faculty, via which I instruct federation judges training programs throughout the United States for dressage and sport horse breeding. I am a former member of the USDF Executive Board and the USA Equestrian Board of Directors.
