Dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer's perfect horse

Dressage star Laura Bechtolsheimer doesn’t have far to get her perfect horse – it’s her own Mistral Hojris [Alf].

"He’s athletic with amazing swing in his body and a good brain" she said, "and we have such a good, strong partnership and know what each other is thinking. I have so much confidence in him, and in Grand Prix dressage he’s extravagant and accurate with no weaknesses."

In looking for her ideal, Laura likes her horses "Big, well-built, strong, big hearted with good conformation that gives them the ability to last longer and on the sharp side with a good brain that always wants to please.

"It’s so much easier to teach them when they are genuine triers, and with big paces and extravagance, it is the rider’s job to shape them."
