Dr. Uwe Schulten-Baumer, one of Germany’s most influental dressage trainers died this morning in a hospital in Rheinberg at the age of 88, ludwigs-pferdewelten.de reported. The “Reitmeister” (Riding master), who was called “Der Doktor” by everyone is especially well-known for training Nicole Uphoff and Isabell Werth. With him both won numerous medals. Werth rode some horses for Schulten-Baumer, amongst them Gigolo, with whom she won four gold and two silver medals. Satchmo, who brought her team gold in 2008 also belonged to Schulten-Baumer. The trainer who was born son of a farmer once rode dressage and showjumping competitions himself. He even was participant of the CHIO in Aachen, but as full-time steel manager and member of the board of the Roheisen association he decided to end his career early in order to concentrate on training other riders.
