Anneliese Küppers, with Afrika, won the silver medal in the team dressage at the 1956 Stockholm Equestrian Olympics. It was the first time that a German dressage team was an all-women trio. The team consisted of Küppers, Liselott Linsenhoff and Hannelore Weygand. Individually Anneliese finished 14th. Küppers later ran the Lauvenburg stud farm owned by her father-in-law Dr. Werner Schaurte, the first president of the German Rider and Drivers’ Association (DRFV) after World War II.
