Personal lifeEdit

A keen horsewoman, in 2010 Schumacher won the European Championship in western style horse riding.[1] Corinna is also an avid dog lover and a dedicated animal rights activist. In 1997, she gave birth to a daughter, Gina-Maria, who is a non-professional horse rider,[2] and in 1999, a son Mick, who is now a professional racing driver, who has competed in Formula One following the footsteps of his father and uncle.[3]

She is the wife of German seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher, and sister-in-law to former Formula One driver Ralf Schumacher. Corinna and Michael were married in Germany in August 1995.[4][5] Before she married Michael, she was in a relationship with Heinz-Harald Frentzen in the early 1990s.[6][7]

Corinna and Michael own horse ranches in Texas[8] and Switzerland.[9] The CS Ranch, located in Gordonville, Texas, deals in all aspects of the reining industry, focusing mainly on training and showing. CS Ranch accepts a select number of outside horses into their training program.[10]
