German ex-patriot Lientje Schueler has made a fabulous debut at Grand Prix level in her new home country, the United States, aboard her brand new ride Mike Tyson L. This budding partnership is proving to be better than Lientje could have dreamt. The professional dressage rider won her first Grand Prix with 71.596% at the national show in Del Mar, CA, on 26 - 27 October 2013. With only five months of in the saddle "face-time" under her belt Oldenburg native Lientje Schueler has gelled well with the temperamental 14-year old Mike Tyson. She discovered him through her close friend and business partner Viola Abrahams at Johnny Hilberath's yard. The horse was Finnish owned at the time and for sale to the right rider. Sired by hot-head Michellino out of a Flamingo dam, the bay gelding would only be a match for those who can channel hotness into greatness.
