Bechtolsheimer aims for top five


Interview: Dressage rider Laura Bechtolsheimer

Britain's Laura Bechtolsheimer has said she is aiming for a top-five finish at the Beijing Olympics.

The Ampney St Peter rider, 23, will in China become the youngest-ever British dressage competitor.

"I'd be really happy because I've got the age factor, so top five would be awesome," she told BBC Points West.

Bechtolsheimer and her horse Mistral Horjis represented Great Britain at the World Equestrian Games in 2006 and the 2007 European Championships.
