Christian Ahlmann (born December 17, 1974 in Marl, North Rhine-Westphalia) is a German equestrian who competes in the sport of show jumping. He currently ranks fifthteenth in the FEI Longines World Ranking List.[1]


During the 2008 Summer Olympics, Ahlmann's horse tested positive for the banned substance capsaicin along with the horses of three other riders, and was subsequently suspended from the Games.[2] Because of the doping charge, the German Olympic Sports Confederation sent a bill to Ahlmann for his travel and accommodation costs at the Games.[3] As a result of the doping offence, he has been struck off the German 'A-Kader' list of elite riders.
