He chose to become a sports soldier when he was called up to complete his national service. "If you had two horses that jumped 1.40m you could ask for sports status and go to the German army school at Warendorf. For me this was a nice alternative and I stayed there for four years. After the first year, I remained voluntarily because I could be a qualified rider and ride at shows in uniform." (zangersheide.com, 31 May 2013)
