We are shocked and sorry to learn of the death of top European Judge Elke Peper, in Germany.
Elke was a very popular and honest lady. She was the BIS judge in Szilvasvárád last year when she was carried into the BIS ring by four splendid horses pulling a carriage. She loved it and she responded accordingly, typical of her nature. Elke had been recovering from breast cancer and appeared in good form at shows during 2005.
