Get to know our riding-stable and inform yourself about our successful stallions as well as our world-famous horses.

Of course, we will also keep you up to date on current events relating to sport horses in Ehning.

  • Marcus Ehning is to German showjumping like the stirrup to the saddle. Read more about the genuine Westfalian and successful rider and horseman:
    Marcus started riding at the age of seven. He took riding lessons, along with his sister, Kerstin, in the riding club of Borken. Some videos still exist in the Ehning archives of Marcus’ first beginner’s shows (E- and A-classes) on Ponies and adult horses.

    Although not every ride was successful, Marcus was very ambitious from the beginning. As a result, he once received a special award for completing a course—even though in the process he had fallen off the horse three times!

    Marcus quickly learned how to adjust to different horses and his father Richard made sure that he had suitable horses.

    Although not every ride was successful, Marcus was very ambitious from the beginning. As a result, he once received a special award for completing a course—even though in the process he had fallen off the horse three times! Marcus quickly learned how to adjust to different horses and his father Richard made sure that he had suitable horses.

    All of the Ehning children learned how to ride on the Pony “Narmit”, who brought Marcus safely to success. “Lord,” Marcus’ first adult horse, gave him the confidence to compete in his first low and medium level shows (L- and M classes). Marcus then rode “Metaxa,” a horse very dear to him but also for sale. When she was as good as sold, however, Marcus lit a candle for her every evening and spent his time sitting next to her in the stable. Marcus’ father got the message and cancelled the deal.
    Another pony called “Starlight” was responsible for Marcus’ first international success and helped him win the Gold Medal in the European Championships in both 1990/91. With “Starlight” and “Queen” he triumphed in several medium level shows (M-classes). He finally won the German Championships in 1991 with his third pony “Bright Ruby.”

    Marcus competed his first high level show (S-class) with “Cygan.” He finished the class with two rails down. At the age of sixteen, Marcus changed from riding ponies to adult horses. During this time “Orchidee“, “Opium“ and “Talan“ were his most important horses. With these three horses, Marcus won the Gold Medal in the European Championships four times in the five year period of his junior and young rider time.
    Marcus had a lot of exciting jump-offs, especially with his horse “Opium“. With the gelding he won more than 40 classes, among these triumphantly the “Preis der Nationen” (Nations Cup) as well as the Grand Prix in Warsaw. Today, the 26 year-old horse enjoys his well deserved retirement on Ehning’s pastures.

    Marcus achieved his first adult international show successes with the horses “Costa”, “Antares” and the above mentioned “Opium”.

    With the arrival of “For Pleasure” at the Ehning’s barn close to Christmas in 1998, the real success story started. “For Pleasure’s” previous career with rider Lars Nieberg is surely still in everybodies memory. His enourmous jumping talent, vibrant presence and wonderful character made the Hanovarian stallion an extraordinary horse.

    Plot Blue, Cornado, Comme Il Faut, Singular LS La Silla, Gaudi and Sabrina belong to Marcus’ top level horses.

    Besides the top horses, Marcus also trains a set of promising young horses. Up to 10 horses are trained by him on a daily basis.

    In his spare time, Marcus plays soccer with his brother Johannes. Not far from the competition stable Marcus and his family live in their own home.

          Previous Grand Prix horses

          Our previous grand-prix horses wrote horse sport history.
          They showed heir true colors in numerous Nations Cups and Championships for Germany and without the strong spirit of those ambitious top athletes we would not have been as successful as we were – we associate their names with so many breathtaking memories. Find out more about our world-renown previous grand-prix horses here.

            For Pleasure was ambitious and good-natured, and he was always focused while training and competing. His personality and success have made him an extraordinary horse. For Pleasure was a breeding stallion and has produced successful offspring competing at the Grand Prix level.

            For Pleasure was Marcus’ most successful horse. Together they have won several medals and achieved innumerable victories and placings.

          Anka was only 5 years old when he came to Marcus’s barn. He showed her in the classes for young horses and also competed her successfully at the Bundeschampionat. As a 7 year old, in December, she already jumped her first Grand Prix and was highly placed. She continued to be one of the most dependable horses with Marcus, due to her very good ridability, scope and carefulness she was started often in the biggest classes. Anka crowned her career with the win at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas in 2003. But also in the years after that she won many classes, among them the Nations Cup in La Baule. After her retirement she was a broodmare at the Ehnings barn for 7 years and gave birth to 5 foals.

          Development

          For Pleasure was ambitious and good-natured, and he was always focused while training and competing. His personality and success have made him an extraordinary horse. For Pleasure was a breeding stallion and has produced successful offspring competing at the Grand Prix level.

          For Pleasure was Marcus’ most successful horse. Together they have won several medals and achieved innumerable victories and placings.

          For Pleasure was retired from the sport at the “CHIO 2006” in Aachen in May 2006. He was a breeding stallion at home with the Ehning family.

          Karina Ehning remained in charge of For Pleasure, her favourite horse in the barn, and ensured a pleasant retirement, a special treatment for an extraordinary horse.

          His favourite song was, by the way, the German national anthem and his nickname was “Freddy”.
