AACHEN, Germany, July 20, 2018–When “Eddie” Jose Eduardo Garcia Luna travels with American Steffen Peters he is focused on taking care of the horses as he has been for the past 13 years, but pursues his passion for football.

Friday night, for a few minutes he could show his love of the game with an unexpected meeting beside the warm-up arena of this premier show where he was taking care of Suppenkasper that had been ridden by Steffen in the CDI4* Grand Prix Special.

Thomas Müller, a star for the past decade of the Bayern Munich and German teams, was there to see his model wife and dressage professional. He is popular not just for his success in a sport that is the most followed around the world, but for his unassuming attitude and obvious enjoyment of his wife’s pursuit.

Eddie, the father of two children, Stefanie and Leonardo, is Mexican but a permanent resident of the United State and based in San Diego, California, home for Steffen and his horses.

Eddie did not say whether he mentioned to Thomas Müller one of the upsets of the just concluded World Cup–Mexico beating Germany in the opening round.

Just for the record, the German-born Steffen is a fan of the NFL Chargers that were based in San Diego until 2017 before moving to Los Angeles.
