German Olympic Judge Heinz Schütte Passed Away

The highly respected German dressage judge Heinz Schütte has passed away on 6 May 2020. He was 93 years old.

Born on 12 January 1927, Schütte came from Braunschweig, Germany, and started riding at the age of 7 at Riding stable Reimann. There he met his life-long friend Joachim Bösche and the two both became highly versatile riders, that rode in all three equestrian disciplines - eventing, show jumping and dressage - something common at the time if one wanted to be an accomplished horse rider.

Heinz was a Lawyer in business law.
