Liselott Linsenhoff was regarded as an idol not only by her daughter Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff, but as the daughter of entrepreneur Adolf Schindling she also set new standards over several decades in dressage and made history at the same time. In 1972 she was the first woman to achieve individual Olympic gold in Munich. Piaff, the handsome stallion, helped her to achieve this triumph.
Altogether she competed in three Olympic Games (1956, 1968, 1972) and won two gold, two silver and one bronze medal.
To this day the Liselott Schindling Foundation supports primarily dressage newcomers and bestows the annual Piaff Sponsorship Award.
