Biography
General Interest
Most influential person in career German jumpers Hermann Schridde and Paul Schockemohle. (ludger-beerbaum.de, 28 May 2014)
Injuries He suffered a fractured shoulder after a fall from his horse Chacon at the 2017 World Cup Western European League event in Mechelen, Belgium. (noellefloyd.com, 30 Dec 2017)

In July 2000 he broke his collarbone at an event in Sweden. He recovered in time to compete at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. (nbcolympics.com, 24 Aug 2008)

At age 15 he was riding on a cross-country track when his horse started to tire and fell, landing on top of him. He broke five ribs, which caused severe lung damage and he spent a week in a coma. He had a third of his right lung removed and spent six weeks in hospital. It took him more than six months to train himself to breathe properly again. (pikeur.de, 25 Aug 2011; nbcolympics.com, 24 Aug 2008)
Sporting philosophy / motto "Accurate riding, intelligent training and sustainable management are responsible for ensuring success is achieved in our sport." (riesenbeck-international.com, 14 Nov 2017)
Awards and honours He received the Role Models in Sport Award at the 2006 German Sports Awards in recognition of his commitment to promoting young talent. (ndr.de, 18 Oct 2013; dosb.de, 21 Jan 2007)
