Jan Smith

MEET JAN

Jan has dedicated her life to dressage and is everyone’s go-to person. She is involved in swabbing, the Young Rider program, stewarding at all major CDIs and national events along with the grass-roots level of the sport. She judges at all levels and donates her time to smaller organisation and country shows.

Jan has successfully delivered the Young Rider Development Program and been the Event Director and Co Event Director of the Youth Dressage Championships for 5 years and on the organising committee since the event commenced in 2002. She has been involved as an official at almost every dressage event in Victoria. Jan’s extensive, up to date and reliable knowledge of rules, along with her highly regarded integrity, makes her the ‘go to’ official for dressage at a state and national level. Jan’s attitude is one that is described as ‘more than 100% committed’, ‘tenacious’, and ‘tireless’.

In 2020, Jan was awarded the ‘Julius Patching Sport Official of the Year’ Award presented by the Victorian Olympic Council’.
