Matthias Alexander Rath
"Horses are my passion, my mission, my past and also my future." This quote beautifully describes why Matthias Alexander Rath is a true asset to #teamequimus. As part of a family that has been influenced by equestrian sports for generations, Matthias is an internationally successful dressage rider. He became German Champion in 2008 with Sterntaler-Unicef and in the following years he was an integral part of the German dressage team. Further successes at the highest international level followed, including with the "wonder horse" Totilas.
Since 2016, Matthias has been dedicating himself on the beautiful Schafhof mainly to the training and show presentation of mostly self-bred young horses. With his training horses, he has recorded international successes up to Intermediaire level and was runner-up in the world championships for young dressage horses in 2018 with the stallion Destacado.
We are incredibly pleased to welcome Matthias Alexander Rath, such a likeable and successful rider, to our team. He and his family embody our vision and together we will change equestrian sports sustainably.
