Laura Tomlinson (Bechtolsheimer) Riding Rosalie B in the Grand Prix Warm Up
Watching the warm up is a great way to not only learn up to get up close and personal with the best riders in the world! So today we are going to check out one of the top riders in the UK Laura Tomlinson (Bechtolsheimer).
More about Laura:
In 2010 the main aim was the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky where we won 3 silver medals, 2 individual and 1 team. I also won the National Championships on Andretti H (Andy). In 2011 we went one better and won team gold at the European Championships as well as an individual bronze medal. Later in the year, I became National Champion for the second time with Andy and I won the World Cup qualifier at Olympia with Alf. It was an amazing year, not only for me personally, but also for British dressage as a whole.
2012 was everything I hoped it would be. I had wonderful experience at the London Olympics with a team gold and an individual bronze medal. After the Olympics I was very proud to come 3rd in the prestigious BBC programme Olympic Superstars. To be awarded an MBE rounded off a very special time in my life and started what has been a time of wonderful changes for me.
I got married to my husband Mark in 2013 and we had our beautiful daughter Annalisa in 2014. I now have some fabulous up-and-coming horses who are aiming for Rio and beyond.
