Summer at the Stables in Greenwich

As a celebrated athlete and recent gold medal-winner at the FEI World Equestrian Games, Adrienne Sternlicht may spend a large portion of her time competing internationally, particularly in Canada and Europe, but she has nevertheless chosen Greenwich, Connecticut as her current home base. Born and raised in the picturesque town, Sternlicht earned degrees from Choate Rosemary Hall and Brown University before fully dedicating her time to the sport. Having grown up in its serene and sprawling bucolic surroundings, Sternlicht knew Greenwich would be the perfect backdrop for the new stables that now house her 10 show horses and recently rescued pony, Taco. She is currently gearing up for a busy summer ahead competing in Canada and Michigan, with the ultimate goal of participating in (and winning) the Olympic Games. Here we take a ride out to Greenwich in Carriage House Motor Cars’ 1957 Chevrolet Corvette and visit Sternlicht’s barn and 230 Taconic Road, listed with Shelly Tretter Lynch at Compass.
