Between 2008 and 2011, Felix Vogg was based in Warendorf (GER), where he completed the professional riders apprenticeship, the Pferdewirt Schwerpunkt Reiten, at the end of which he won the prestigious Stensbeck Award. He now trains full time in Germany with Olympic, world and European Champion Michael Jung.
