Christoph Wahler

  • 40 - Carjatan S


It will be a first Badminton for German rider Christoph Wahler (28). With Badminton entry Carjatan S Christoph enjoyed a successful 2021 coming 2nd at the Luhmuhlen 5* and 7th at the 2021 European Championships running as an individual for Germany.

Christoph comes from a well-known family of equestrians. In 1960 his grandfather Eugen Wahler procured the famous Klosterhof Medingen in the borough of Bad Bevenson in lower Saxony, founding one of the best known Trakehner studs in modern times. In 1982 his son Burkhard Wahler (the 1986 German eventing champion) took over continuing his father’s vision and extending the stud – it became the home of the famous leading German sire De Niro. Christoph took over the management last year. The stud is now well known for its famous sales and a diverse catalogue of competition stallions.

Christoph competed in two Junior European (2010 & ’12) and three Young Rider European Championships (2013,’14, &’15) winning two team silvers and in 2015 the individual bronze on the Irish-bred Green Mount Flight.

Christoph trains with Peter Thomsen

Carjatan S owned by long-time supporter Lena Thoenies and rider is a German-bred Holstein 13-year-old gelding. He is by the leading Holstein jumping sire Clearway out of a mare by the thoroughbred Galant Vert. He was acquired as a five-year-old purchased from the auction of Elmar Lesch.
