The KFPS Board has recently nominated several new people for the Inspection and the Exterior Jury. These nominations will be put to the Member Council at the next meeting. Nominated for the Inspection body are Jan Hellinx and Corrie Terpstra. With his Belgian nationality, Jan Hellinx is the first KFPS inspector of non-Dutch origin. He has been part of the KFPS Jury body since 2000 and was also tasked with linear scoring. Jan Hellinx has been a prospective candidate for the Inspection for some time already. Corrie Terpstra has been a judge for the KFPS since 1996. She too is one of the Jury members in charge of linear scoring.

After the next Stallion Inspection Louise Hompe will resign from the Inspection but she will stay involved with the KFPS as a Jury member. Jaap Boersma is scheduled to end his activities as an Inspector after next year´s Central Examination.
