Retired international dressage judge Jan Peeters has passed away in his home in Weert, The Netherlands, after a short period of illness. He was 81 years old
Peeters dedicated his entire life to dressage sport as a highly versatile official: he was a judge, a JSP member, a coach, a chef d'equipe and a team trainer.
He started out as an instructor, but quickly grew an interest in being a dressage judge. He became a driving force in the development of a Dutch judges' training program, also for freestyle judging, and he designed many national new dressage tests. In 2016 he even provided vocal commentary for the App of the KNHS Dressage Book.
