VERDEN, Germany, Aug. 8, 2014–Fans of dressage and soccer got a double treat at the Verden Dressage Festival Friday when Lisa Müller, with her soccer star husband a spectator, competed her Anne Beth in the Prix St. Georges Special for the Nürnberger Burgpokal, the premier competition series for small tour horses.

Her husband is Thomas Müller, a hero in Germany as a player on the nation’s team that won the World Cup in Brazil and who came to watch his wife compete.

Lisa and the nine-year-old KWPN mare didn’t score well, awarded 62.724 per cent, but that didn’t seem to matter to the spectators and the media who turned out, as did many hundreds of others in an autograph signing session in the city earlier in the day, just to catch a glimpse of the soccer star cum dressage horse husband.

Lisa is nominated for the Piaff-Förderpreis of the Liselott-Schindling-Stiftung another German championship series.

Both Lisa and her husband engage in both breeding and competing horses.

Durng this show, they will be presented by the Hanoverian Verband a filly by Zack/De Niro. The horse will move to the Müller’s farm in Bavaria in the fall.
