Anne Kursinski is a Five-time Olympian, two-time Olympic Silver Medalist, author, clinician and international competitor. In 1991, the U.S. Olympic Committee voted her Female Equestrian Athlete of the Year. She won individual and team gold medals in the Caracas, 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 UK, Anne has been involved in the development and promotion of the sport. She is a USHJA clinician, member of the USHJA and USET Executive Committees and USEF Board of Directors. Anne is the Chef d’Equipe for the U.S. Show Jumping Development program and was a selector for the 2014 WEG bronze medal winning U.S. team in Normandy, France and the 2016 Rio Olympics’ Silver Medal Winning U.S. team. She has also been an analyst on show jumping telecasts.
Anne also has an online instructional site, Riding and Jumping Mentor, where members benefit from her vast knowledge via instructional videos and articles. "The online teaching site allows me to help people who I may not have had the opportunity to assist", said Kursinski. Location, finances, and confidence are factors that can limit many amateur riders. She has recently added virtual lessons to her offerings. Riders can send videos for Anne to critique or take a live virtual lesson with the use of Skype or Facetime. A new, all color edition of Anne's best-selling book, Riding and Jumping Clinic will release August 1, 2020. For more information go to www.ridingandjumpingmentor.com.
Through her Market Street facility in Frenchtown, NJ, 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, Karen Polle and Eventers Caroline Martin and Matt Brown. Kursinski enjoys 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 assists students and professionals that ship in for lessons and meet her at the shows.
