MARCUS EHNING - Germany – Show Jumping
Marcus began riding at age 7 and since he was a child he has proved himself to be an extremely ambitious and talented rider. When he was 16 years old he made the transition from ponies to horses and won gold in the European Championships 3 times in 5 years as a junior and a young rider. He now has three top horses; Orchid, Talan and Opium (with whom he has won more than 40 competitions, including a Nations Cup and a Grand Prix – in Warsaw).
But the story of his success began when For Pleasure arrived in the stables in 1998. Sandro Boy, Sabrina, Vulkano, Leconte and Plot Blue are all the top horses that have contributed and are contributing to Marcus’ history, just like the phenomenal Nolte’s Kuechegirl, whose career was launched by his brother Johannes. Just like all big champions, Marcus dedicates some time each day to training young horses, which he sees as the basis for future success.
