What her peers say about Tina Konyot:

FEI OLYMPIC JUDGE and RIDER: Anne Gribbons:

"Tina is a beautiful rider and gets the most out of the horse. I enjoy watching her rider. She has an elegant seat and a wonderful feel for horses. As a person she is funny and upfront.”

UNITED STATES EQUESTRIAN TEAM JUDGE: Natalie Lamping:

“Tina is an elegant and effective rider. She has a beautiful seat on a horse and makes a beautiful presentation.”

FEI OLYMPIC JUDGE: Axel Steiner:

“I am always pleased when Tina comes down the center line. She is such a natural talent that I know that she will make her horse perform to the best of its ability. There are many riders, but there are only a very few who are true partners with their horse—Tina is one of them. Even if her horse makes a mistake, Tina is kind and reassuring in her correction, so it becomes not only learning, but also a confidence building experience for the horse. Few riders have that natural gift—Tina has it. On the other hand, Tina is a tough competitor with unlimited potential. I would love to see her make our national team and prove to all what a credit she is to our sport of dressage.”

SIX TIME OLYMPIC RIDER AND GOLD MEDALIST: Robert Dover:

“I consider Tina one of America’s most gifted rider/trainers. She is a very gifted rider from a very gifted family. She is one of the bright stars in this country. A true professional. Her father was a genius and Tina carries his genes."
