Although he did not begin riding competitively until he was 15, Martin Schäufler received the Golden Rider's Award at the early age of 23. To date he has achieved more than 1800 wins and placements up to S**** level in the show jumping ring.
Without question, one of the main highlights of Martin's riding career was winning the Bayernchampionat in the Munich Olympic Hall two years in succession in 2007 and 2008. In 2007, having won all of the qualifying rounds, Martin went on to win the title - an achievement which remains to date unique in the history of this competition.
Another of Martin's major success was the winning of the Grand Prix of Bucharest in 2008 as a member of the victorious German Nations Cup team.
His long-time coach and mentor was Heinrich Wilhelm Johannsmann.
Since 2010, Martin has worked as a dedicated coach and trainer for young horses and talented young riders at the property of his good friend and long-time colleague Rüdiger Renner. In this capacity he has made a name for himself far beyond the borders of Bavaria.
In 2016, Martin was named coach of the Bavarian Junior and Young Rider show jumping squad. In that same year Martin joined Gestüt Ammerland, where he is not only responsible for the training of Ammerland's show jumping horses, but also riding them at competitions.
2016 was also the year of Martin's marriage to his wife, Daniela. And, much to their delight, 2017 saw the birth of their first child, Mia Carlotta.
