Masters’ riders (5*)


Aside from a world individual title, Ludger Beerbaum has won on all grounds of the world. The highlights of his career have surely been his four Olympic titles, one of which being individual, in Barcelona (1992), while riding with Classic Touch.

The Freak (1988) Ratina Z (1996) and Goldfever (2000) are the three other partners that offered him Olympic gold by team. In 2008, in the show jumping temple of Aix-La-Chapelle, more than 50 000 spectators assisted a moving tribute to his last big partner, Goldfever who, with 18 years of age, said his goodbyes to a rich career with many successes.

With Couleur Rubin, Coupe de Cœur, Chamanto or even Gotha, son of Goldfever, icon of this discipline in his country and sacred various times “rider of the year” by the FEI, he has not stopped feeding his title list. As proof, the Euro in 2013 the German rider won a new team silver medal with Chiara 222.
