Yes, both Michael Schumacher and his wife Corinna Schumacher are big-time horse enthusiasts. To give more emphasis to their enthusiasm, Michael bought a ranch in Texas, the United States in 2012.

According to Bild Magazine, “The CS Ranch is owned by Corinna Schumacher, wife of the most successful F1 driver of all time, Michael Schumacher. Corinna also runs the CS Ranch in Switzerland, where her ‘SVAG CS Classic Show’ has made a name for herself across Europe.”

The ranch is a 200-hectare land situated in Gordonville, Texas. It is right beside the Red River and located near the Oklahoma and Texas border along the US Route 377 highway. Known as the CS Ranch, it is now home to a pretty huge animal stabling.

What’s so special about the Michael Schumacher ranch?

The ranch now has world-class facilities for animal stabling, training, and breeding. When Schumacher bought the ranch, it already had a stabling capacity of 36 horses back then. As time went on, the capacity increased to many folds.

The former Ferrari driver’s wife Corinna was the 2010 European champion, while his daughter, Gina, is also a horserider. The Schumacher family spends so much time on the Texas property that rumors came out if they’ll relocate to the CS ranch. Nullifying the rumor, the seven-time world champion conveyed, “No, no, we’re going to keep living in Switzerland. But we will also be here and plan to spend more time here.”
