He later studied for many years with Piet Oothout and Ernest van Loon and received additional instructor certifications with the National Dutch Riding School and the USDF.

Throughout his career Jos has successfully trained horses through Grand Prix dressage and upper level Eventing. He has held many prestigious positions and earned numerous awards. He was former Chef of the Dutch Olympic Eventing Team, trained the Belgium Three-Day Olympic Team, has coached numerous students to the National Young Riders Championship, serves as a USEF judge for sport Horses and other breeds, and was instrumental in bringing the “Young Horse” competition program to the US.
