Passion for Parasports

For many years, I am engaged in parasports - initially as judge. Nowadays I work succesfully as trainer only at national and international level. Working together with Solveig Wörzberger (Grade IV) and Bianca Vogel (Grade III) both ladies have won a number of medals at the national German Championships. Bianca even won 2 Silver Medals at the Paralympics in Athens 2004.

Since 2007 I train Singaporean para-rider Laurentia Tan in close cooperation with her home coach Penny Pilgrum. Competing very successfully at international level including two Bronze Medals in Beijing, Laurentia is regarded as one of the world-leading Grade-Ia-riders. In 2012 we first ever competed as a team for Singapore in the Paralympics in London and have directly won a Silver- and a Bronze Medal. Two years later we could repeat this success at the World Equestrian Games in France with a further Bronze Medal. And now seven horses have qualified for the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, which I have either discovered or specially trained.
