In Memoriam: Gerhard Dittus (GER), 1942-2022

One of the oldest Official FEI Veterinarian passed away on 13th February, 2022, MVDR Gerhard Dittus. His passion was treating horses, and working as an FEI Official Vet in Jumping, Driving and Eventing.

He was appointed for many years at the CSIO St. Gallen, Budapest, and as delegate on several European Championships in Driving and Eventing. He was also Veterinarian on Palio Sienna in Italy. He liked to come to shows in Eastern-Europe, mostly Poland and Hungary, and with his enthusiasm he educated a new generation of official vets in these countries. His home was always open for his friends, where they would enjoy his and his wife’s hospitality.

He was 79 years old.

We express our sincere condolences to Gerhard Dittus’ family and friends.
