Paul Schockemöhle (born March 22, 1945, in Mühlen, Oldenburg) is a former German showjumper. He is the brother of Alwin Schockemöhle, another leading German rider. He was three times European Champion on his best horse Deister. In 1990, Schockemöhle was secretly recorded poling horses, a practice which involves rapping a horse's legs with a pole to train it to jump higher. Poling is forbidden by the International Equestrian Federation, and spot checks were subsequently carried out at several other German training establishments.[1]

Today, Schockemöhle is both a breeder and trainer of some of Germany's top sport horses. In October 2010, it was announced that he had purchased Moorlands Totilas, a champion dressage stallion shown by Edward Gal, from Moorlands Stables.[2]
