Q&A: YOUNG RIDER PROFILE

YOUTHFUL FOCUS:

Q&A with U-25 Rider Diana Porsche
At 21-years-old, Austrian native and dressage rider Diana
Porsche already has an impressive resume . Diana fell in
love with the equine world at a young age and received
her first horse at the age of 12 . Porsche is currently ranked
ninth on the FEI Youth Dressage World Ranking List-U25
with mount Di Sandro OLD, and has several young horses
coming into play as she continues her riding journey .

Q
A

How did you get into horses, and what has your
riding career looked like thus far?

When I was young, I fell in love with horses and
ponies . Since childhood, my dream has been to
end up being a professional rider . At the age of 12 I got
my first dressage horse from the Netherlands and a few
years later, when I was 14, my first victories arrived . Eloy
was my first top international horse, and he brought
me to my first European Championships for Juniors in
Compiegne, France in 2014 . I then rode at the European
Championships for Young Riders with Florencia and
when that was over I bought Di Sandro OLD . The horse Di
Sandro OLD, a 14-year-old Oldenburg, helped me make
history, as I became the first Austrian rider to win the
Individual Freestyle Bronze
medal at the 2016 European
U25 Championships in Hagen,
Germany .

Q
A

What are your riding
goals for the future?

One day I want to
represent Austria at
the big tournaments like
the European and World
Championships and of course
at the Olympic Games! To get
there, I focus on improving
every day . The same of
course goes for my beloved
horses . If we all can continue
to have fun at "work," I think
we will be able to achieve
those goals someday .

50 * 2018 ADEQUAN® GLOBAL DRESSAGE FESTIVAL

Q
A

What do you love about competing at the
Adequan® Global Dressage Festival?

I love seeing my friends, whom I've gotten to know
at AGDF in the past years . It feels like a special
community there . I enjoy the wonderful organization
of the show and the working conditions for riders as
well as horses . My young horses are also able to gain a
lot of experience during the winter months, due to the
international atmosphere .

Q

You have had a lot of success with Di Sandro OLD.
What are your goals with him, and what is his
personality like?

A

I hope that Di Sandro and I can celebrate many
beautiful victories in the U25 category . With the help
of Sandro I hope I can get closer to the Grand Prix level of
the sport and collect many more important experiences
with him . Di Sandro is my heart and he is my soul . He is a
fighter and he never gives up .

Q

What are the challenges of balancing horses and
being a young adult?

A

It is all about the time, of
course . Besides being a
professional rider, I am also a
student at a distant university .
My timetable is tight, and if it
wasn't, it wouldn't be possible
to combine the work with six
horses and school!

Q

What do you love the
most about the dressage
world?

A

I have found a lot of
friends thanks to this
sport, whom I constantly
meet at various venues .
Working with horses is one
of the best jobs in the world,
as I enjoy being around the
animals . I think you learn a lot
- like discipline - for life .
