The public prosecutor’s office in Münster has initiated an investigation into the allegations of illegal training methods against the show jumper Ludger Beerbaum.
The public prosecutor’s office confirmed this to the “Westfälische Nachrichten” and the WDR. It is therefore determined because of the allegation of tormenting animal abuse as an accomplice.
In an article on “RTL Extra”, the world-class show jumper was accused of using the forbidden parallel bar training method on his show jumpers. The four-time Olympic champion denies that. In a statement, Beerbaum (58) defended himself against the allegations and wrote: “The contribution from ‘RTL extra’ is demonstrably wrong, defamatory and defamatory in many respects.”
