7 time world champion will be riding a horse, raising money for a children's hospital

Jul.3 (GMM) Michael Schumacher will not attend the German Grand Prix this weekend.

After retiring from F1 for the second and final time at the end of last year, the seven time world champion was tipped to at least attend this weekend's Nurburgring race.

But Germany's Bild newspaper reports that the great 44-year-old is already signed up for a riding competition with his horse-enthusiast wife Corinna.

Schumacher will be riding in a celebrity charity category, raising money for a children's hospital, while the world of Formula One races around the Nurburgring.

"The clash of dates is unfortunate," he said, "but of course I'll be watching the Grand Prix on TV."
