Laura Bechtolsheimer and Polar Bear are the 2012 Suregrow Fertiliser Open Advanced Medium Champions

Laura scored 74.58% in a very strong class to take home the Suregrow Fertiliser Open Advanced Medium title. Clearly delighted to win a national title “I’m a real proud mum,” smiled Laura after the prize giving. “I’m very pleased with him; he’s taken it all in his stride. With the Olympics this year I haven’t had much time to compete Polar Bear. We did just enough to qualify – two shows, followed by the regionals which he won.”

Polar Bear, a 17.3h.h 8 year old home bred gelding, is by Laura’s former Junior team horse Polarion out of a Landadel mare. He is on the World Class Equine Pathway programme and Laura has high hopes for him in the future“I took him to an Equine Pathway training day two weeks ago, but apart from that and qualifying for today, he hasn’t been out much this year. He certainly hasn’t competed somewhere like this before.”

Laura and Polar Bear are looking forward to a well deserved short break before winter, with the aim to compete at small tour next year.
