Kasselmann – This name is a synonym for first-class equitation. Together with their son Francois, Ullrich and Bianca Kasselmann, have been training horses on highest level for more than three decades now. They have turned the name “Kasselmann” into a popular trademark.
Working with horses is his passion: Ullrich Kasselmann already knew at an early age that this passion should become his profession. The well-known horseman Hans Joachim Köhler was his teacher – Ullrich Kasselmann learnt his equestrian skills in Verden. For more than 18 years, he had been a successful auction rider. He inherited his knowledge to train horses up to Grand Prix-level from well-known dressage riders like Harry Boldt, Bubi Günther or Willi Schultheiß. They influenced him considerably. Kasselmann is an expert par excellence and an internationally established horseman whom the German FN has honored with the Golden Riders Badge.
Bianca Kasselmann discovered her passion for horses at an early age as well. The successful professional rider was close to horses right from her childhood, and her knowledge about equitation is beyond compare. In 1980, she won the German show jumping championship title. In the show and training stable of Hans Joachim Köhler in Verden, she met her husband Ullrich and that’s why she “resaddled”: she discovered her penchant for dressage sport. With great success: Countless victories and placements at Grand Prix-level and the title “German Professional Dressage Rider Champion” are the positive proof!
When looking at the equestrian dedication of his parents, it is only logical that Francois Kasselmann was already born with his love for horses. It is therefore no coincidence that the son of both horse experts, who was also a successful competitor at European Championships, works with passionate enthusiasm in the home stable (training and sales).
Diana, Emma and Lilly Kasselmann
Besides Francois, his wife Diana and their daughters Emma and Lilly form the young heart of the Kasselmann-dynasty. Their passion for horses was also the reason why they met, to be more precise, during their years of apprenticeship with Paul Schockemöhle. And since this time, horses are also the main focus of their life. Diana is an important pillar in the office and at the P.S.I. when it comes to organizational questions.
