"Dutch Dressage News: Former Dutch team trainer Sjef Janssen has been weeding out students to reduce his band to just three or four.
"After Patrik Kittel's break from long-time coach Janssen, the world's number one Adelinde Cornelissen has announced that she and Janssen have gone their separate ways."
@FranJurga writes: The world's turned upside down. As this article relates, the long-time Dutch coach underwent brain surgery earlier this year to remove a benign tumor. But his health requires a change in his work plans.
Sjef Janssen's training has been controversial in the dressage world, yet for years the Dutch riders won World Cup, WEG and Olympic championships.
There may be a new world order beginning in 2013...but will the same coach be behind the new champions? It will be fascinating to see how Sjef's new proteges do under his tutelage, and what the judges think of their performances.
