The 12-year old Dutch warmblood bred Grand Prix horse Tiësto has been sold to French based Belgian Grand Prix rider Laurence Vanommeslaghe. Tiesto was originally Norwegian owned and one of the country's high profile dressage horses.

Bred by A. Vosters from Luyksgestel, The Netherlands, the liver chestnut Tiësto (Gribaldi out of Nadie by Ferro) was owned by Norwegian Siv Morberg, who competed the gelding at the 2005  World Young Horse Championships in Verden, where they finished 13th in the Consolation Finals. One year later they represented Norway again in Verden and finished 7th in the consolation finals.

Morberg competed Tiesto in the small tour at international shows in 2009 and 2010. In 2012 the gelding made his show debut at Grand Prix level under Danish horse dealer and trainer Hasse Hoffmann.  The latter competed Tiesto extensively at the CDI Oslo, CDI Hagen, CDI Falsterbo and CDI-W Odense as well as the 2012 Danish Grand Prix Championships, where they finished 9th in the Kur to Music Finals.

Paris based Belgian Grand Prix rider Laurence Vanommeslaghe has acquired Tiesto as her second Grand Prix horse alongside Avec Plaisir (by A Jungle Prince). A political science major at the Sorbonne university, Vanommeslaghe has been actively competing her chestnut Avec Plaisir at international shows such as Deauville and Compiegne.
