|Laura Stigler on Doubleyou|
I am so proud of my "little sister" for making the cut to represent Germany at the World Breeding Young Horse Championships at the beginning for August in Verden, Germany.
Like me, Laura is a "Bereiter", or licensed riding instructor. Laura did her three-year apprenticeship with Rudolf Zeilinger in Emsbueren. I had already finished my apprenticeship with Paul Beck and my exam in Warendorf and was working for Rudolf Zeilinger as a rider when Laura came to start as an apprentice. We lived and worked together for about two years before I made the move to Australia .
After Laura finished her exam in Warendorf, she moved to Sweden for three years to work for Jan Brink .
Now she runs her own training business near Duesseldorf as well as works for a family that she rides for and trains their daughter, Lena Walterscheid, who is a very successful Young Rider in Germany.
Boyd and I wish Laura all the best for the World Championships!!!!
