Surrounded by horses at his parents’ farm in Germany, Philipp Weishaupt began riding at an early age. Now a German Championship winner, Phillip also won the Grand Prix in Vigo in 2010 and 2011, and took the Nations Cup in Hickstead in 2009 and 2011, to name but a few career highlights. He also won the World Cup in Bordeaux and came 3rd in the Rio de Janeiro Grand Prix, both in 2011. His advice to other riders is to ‘never give up’.
Philipp cites Ludger Beerbaum and his father as his greatest career influences and says Monte Bellini has been his best-loved horse. He describes Global Champions Tour as ‘great sport, great show, full of luxury.’
