Paul Schockemöhle – Equestrian Legend
Paul Schockemöhle, is today one of the most prolific breeders and dealers of showjumping horses in the world. The video below shows equestrian legend Paul Schockemöhle, jumping his great horse Deister at the Gothenburg World Cup in 1986. Note Paul Schockemöhle’s rather unorthodox upper body position over the fence and his lower leg, whilst still maintaining rhythm and tempo. A master at work!
We will shortly be adding more about Paul Schockemöhle, his spectacular showjumping career spanning the 1970′s and 1980′s when he won just about every top championship on the International Show Jumping Circuit – so watch this space. Meantime here is a nostalgic image of Paul with another legend, the great Deister and Paul’s main equine partner during that period.
