LAURA GRAVES and her horse, Verdades, need no introduction to dressage enthusiasts.

"When I was 14 years old, my parents were committed to giving me a real equestrian opportunity. So, on our modest budget, we decided to gamble on a high-quality foal, versus a lesser-quality schooled horse. Verdades eventually led me to the top of leader boards around the globe, and, in 2016, an Olympic bronze medal. He rocketed me to become the first-ever American to hold the number one spot on the FEI World Ranking list."

Laura and "Diddy" won the FEI World Cup Finals - Dressage Grand Prix Paris 2018!

Verdades was USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year 2017, and they were ranked 3rd in the FEI World Standings. This combination represented the USA in 2016 Summer Olympics ensuring a team bronze.


Laura is one of the most successful USA dressage riders of all time. Her training is steeped in solid background of USDF instructors, Anne Gribbons, and Debbie McDonald. 

Laura has an accessible demeanor and makes riding light and fun despite its demands.
