Exciting times for U.S. Rio Olympic team member Allison Brock. Not only did she marry her partner Anthony Siegbert on 15 March 2021 but the couple is also expecting their first baby together.
Olympic Team Bronze Medalist
Hawaiian born Allison Brock, who was the former groom of Kundrun's other sponsored rider Sue Blinks, rose to stardom aboard Fritz Kundrun's Hanoverian stallion Rosevelt (by Rotspon).

Their efforts culminated in a U.S. Olympic team selection for the 2016 Games in Rio, where they finished 15th in the Kur to Music finals after earning team bronze.

In 2019 Brock was named as one of the coaches on the U.S. Dressage Coaches Support Network, a program to establish a group of like-minded dressage trainers to support U.S. dressage program events and initiatives. She is also a USEF AAC Equestrian Representative.
Married Life, Baby on the Way
The 40-year old Brock got engaged to Anthony Siegbert in December 2019 and married him in a small civil ceremony on 15 March 2021.
"We got married at the courthouse early on Monday morning - no witnesses allowed because of Covid," Brock told Eurodressage. "It was very informal.The plan was to get married in Hawaii this week. Covid made the logistics of it all pretty impossible. So we will probably have a “real” wedding in Hawaii next year and definitely a big party in Wellington as well to celebrate!"
Allison describes Anthony as a non horsey person who "has become one by default through me. I got my 10 year old stepdaughter riding a few years ago and she definitely has the horse addiction!"
The couple is expecting a baby boy around 1 August 2021.
"Lots of big life changes," Allison added with a smile.
