General Interest
Famous relatives His son Wilhelm has competed at the German Young Riders Championships. Another son, Theo, has competed in national level jumping competitions in the United States of America. His wife Patricia has competed in the hunter divisions at national level in the United States of America. (thedigitalhorse.com, 26 Oct 2018; chronofhorse.com, 19 Feb 2008)
He left Germany for the United States of America in the late 1980s, where he set up Rheinland Farm in Lebanon, Ohio, with wife Patricia. The couple met by chance in Wellington, FL, where they were both using the same barn to keep their horses, and married in 1988. "My wife and I had to make sacrifices [in the early years], but it all turned out really well. The kids sacrificed because I was gone a lot, but it's made us more connected, tighter than most families. Whenever we were together, we tried to do fun things because we didn't see each other as much. Maybe in a couple of years I can spend more time with my wife and make up for the time we lost when she stayed home with the kids, and I was on the road."

His son Theo is following in his footsteps, and plans to take over the family business when Wilhelm retires. The two have competed often against each other in the same class, which Theo says is "extremely competitive, but in a good way. It's very, very positive. But I always say that if it weren't for always being in the same shows with my dad growing up, I would probably have an incredible record. I probably have 20 or so second places where he won a Grand Prix, and I came in just behind him." (jumpernation.com, 08 Jun 2018)
