Sönke Rothenberger

Dressage’s rising star Sönke Rothenberger has become a Longines Ambassador of Elegance


His favorite collection


Despite his young age, Sönke has already had a career that many twice his age can only dream of. Through the graceful elegance of his discipline, he epitomizes the values embodied by the brand’s slogan “Elegance is an Attitude”. Indeed, the harmony of the movements, the completely symbiotic relationship between athlete and horse and their respect for one another are the ultimate expressions of elegance. In a career spanning more than a decade, the German rider has collected a string of titles and medals, notably with his iconic gelding Cosmo.

In 2016, Sönke received the Longines Rising Star title, one of the prizes presented during the FEI Awards ceremony, in recognition of his remarkable talent and his extraordinary commitment to equestrian sport. His achievements in the past years include a team gold medal in Rio in 2016 and notably two individual silver medals and team gold at the Longines FEI European Dressage Championships in Gothenburg (Sweden) in 2017. 12 months later, he took home individual bronze and team gold at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Tryon (USA).

In 2019, he added more medals to his impressive tally with European team gold once again as well as individual bronze.
