Interview with Richard Vogel

Congratulations! You are the Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping live contender; how are you feeling ahead of The Dutch Masters?

I am excited and looking forward to competing at The Dutch Masters. My position has changed significantly since the CHI Geneva as I was not one of the favourites going into the competition. I was considered a young rider who was trying to gain experience in those classes. I went there with the mentality of wanting to give it my best shot, and so it was an unbelievable result for us to win the Rolex Grand Prix at the CHI Geneva.

We are now heading to The Dutch Masters; I think our position has changed a little bit. I would not say that I am one of the favourites, but people have higher expectations of us now. We are going to try to be as competitive as possible, and the goal is to try and win again.
