“It’s absolutely crazy — crazy, crazy crazy.”
Those are the words Swiss Olympian Felix Vogg uses to describe his first reaction to winning a 5* for his country — the first Swiss win of its kind since 1951, to be specific.
Felix might be tapping his 2021 European Championship partner and original Tokyo horse, the 11-year-old mare Cartania, for Worlds this fall, but this win gives him a boost as he now moves ahead to Aachen in Germany and, with any hope, a berth on the burgeoning Swiss team come September.
