About Anneliese Vogt-Harber

Anneliese Vogt-Harber currently owns and operates the 25-stall stable with 15 school horses, training students from the Introductory Level up to Grand Prix.  Anneliese has been involved in Vogt Riding Academy and riding horses her entire life, thanks to her parents, Joe and Theresa Vogt. 

As a child, Anneliese competed in a variety of disciplines, including western, saddle seat, endurance, eventing, hunter/jumper, and dressage.  As a junior, she showed two home-bred, self-trained Thoroughbred mares on the hunter circuit, winning many year-end awards. She won the Medal Maclay as a Junior.  She continued competing as an amateur for one year on the open jumpers, before turning to eventing, where she competed and trained students through the Preliminary Level.

In 1982 and 1983, Anneliese trained in Ansbach, Germany, where she tested and received the German bronze and silver medals from the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI). From that point on, dressage has been her main focus.  She was responsible for breaking and training over 50 home bred horses. Tulipan Neopol was a home bred Lipizzan stallion that Anneliese trained through Grand Prix.   She competed him for over 10 years winning many USDF Horse of the Year awards, and such prestigious competitions like a World Cup qualifier at the Raleigh CDI, also earning her USDF bronze, silver and gold medals with him.
Her next Grand Prix horse was a Hanovarian trained by Anneliese from training level. He was in the USDF Horse of the Year each year competed. He was first place USDF Horse of the Year at Third level and picked by the American Hanovarian Society as the top horse of his breed in all disciplines two years in a row. Three years in a row, they were invited to the Intermediate National Championships at the Festival of Champions in Gladstone, NJ. In 1999, they competed in the Pan American Selection Trials.
Throughout her competition years, she shown many other horses winning numerous year end awards both with USDF and GDCTA.  Past and present students have competed successfully at USDF recognized shows on their own horses or school horses.  Anneliese has held several positions for USDF over the years including USDF Competitors Council as a member and chair, the Membership Committee as a member and chair, and the Test Writing Committee as a member. Anneliese has served as a member of the USDF Regional Championship Committee, which she continues today.
