One of Germany's great old classical dressage masters, if not the last, has passed away. Dr. Uwe Schulten-Baumer died in the local hospital in his home town Rheinberg in Germany on Tuesday morning 28 October 2014. He was 88 years old. Originally from Essen-Kettwig, Uwe made a career in the steel and cement business after his formal education and considered horses and dressage "a hobby." Schulten-Baumer was one of the most successful dressage trainers ever, having led Nicole Uphoff and Isabell Werth to their individual Olympic gold medals. His two children, Uwe junior and Alexa, as well as a stepdaughter Ellen all competed at international Grand Prix level.
