After eight-and-a-half successful years working for Jos Lansink, Dutch rider Frank Schuttert has decided to start up on his own. The 28-year-old came to Lansink’s stable in 2013, and has plenty of top results to look back at during his time there – such as victories in the CSI5* Copa S.M. El Rey in Madrid and the CSI4* Longines Trophy Grand Prix of Maastricht in 2019 with Queensland E, the CSI5* Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Valkenswaard in 2018 with Chianti’s Champion, the CSI3* Grand Prix in Eindhoven in 2018 with Beautiful Red, the CSI3* VDL Groep Grand Prix in Eindhoven in 2016 with Go Easy De Muze, and the CSIO5* Preis AachenMünchener in 2014 with Epleaser van’t Heike. Schuttert has also represented the Netherlands at the European Championships in 2019 and 2021, as well as at the World Equestrian Games in 2018 – and has twice been crowned Dutch Champion, in 2016 and in 2018. 

“It has not been an easy decision,” Schuttert tells World of Showjumping. “I was 19 when I started to work for Jos, and we have achieved so much together. I could not be more thankful to him, and for everything he has done for me and my career. Everyone that I got to meet at the stables during these years have also been incredible, and we have had amazing horses to work with. However, now it feels like it is time for me to move on.”

Where and when, is still not decided. “I would say I will leave by the end of the year, but I want to close this chapter in my life in the best possible way,” Schuttert explains. “Obviously we have a great stable at home also, which my brother runs, so that is one option – but I want to take my time and keep the door open for all possibilities. We still have a few shows to do together, and Lyonel is still my best horse."

“We have had great years together,” Jos Lansink says to World of Showjumping. “However, there comes a time for everyone to try and make it on their own, and I can wish nothing but the best for Frank.”
