A Lusitano for Christoph Koschel

German Grand Prix rider Christoph Koschel is about to go down in history as the first German Team Member to buy a Lusitano, so eurodressage.com announced. He has bought six-year-old stallion Favorito, as yet owned by Portuguese rider Antonio do Vale and his business partner Jose Cebola. Koschel has great hopes for the horse, which he got to know when his own pupil, Ricardo Wallenstain, trained the horse in Portugal.
