German 2011 European Championship team rider Matthias Alexander Rath got engaged to his long-time girlfriend Franziska Eisenmann during a weekend trip to Luxembourg.
The 28-year old Rath and the 25-year old Eisenmann are both children of prominent, rich Frankfurt based families. Rath is step son to millionaire Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff while Eisenmann is the daughter of an extremely wealthy car industrialist. Both share a passion for horses and dressage. They have been a couple for four years.
The couple will marry the week after the 2013 European Dressage Championships in Herning, Denmark. The ceremony will take place in Kronberg, after which a celebration will take place in Mallorca, where Franziska's parents live.
