Olympic showjumper Bert Romp has died following an accident at Middelbeers in the Netherlands where he was teaching.
Bert was a member of the Dutch gold medal-winning team at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992 and he was due to celebrate his 60th birthday in a few weeks.
The accident happened on 3 October while he was loading a horse into the lorry and was kicked. He was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery but died the following afternoon.
“Equestrian sport has sadly lost a great ambassador and true horseman with the passing of Bert Romp,” said FEI jumping director John Roche.
