Between 1993 and 1995, he was a consistent performer in the Young Riders category, notching up a total of six medals at the German and European Championships. He was soon called up to the Seniors, where his career really took off with Cöster, a new arrival at his stables. The stallion carried him to a sequence of achievements, including individual and team gold at the European Championships in 2003, team gold at the European Championships in 2005, a bronze medal at the 2006 World Championships, team silver at the 2007 European Championships and a bronze medal at the 2004 Olympics...
