It is not very often that Australian dressage fans can arouse their senses and indulge a passion for beautiful horses and top quality dressage ... but do not despair ... this is your invitation!
Be sure that you make a space in your calendar to fit in this important and enlightening equine experience - from Friday 2nd November to Sunday 4th. Treat yourself to an early Christmas present and enjoy a very special and memorable occasion with some special friends.
Rarely do we get the chance to take in the concepts and everyday hints of one of the best riders and trainers in the world. Superlatives are inadequate when it comes to describing the gifts of German born, US dressage Champion, Steffen Peters.
Steffen delivers his message with an amazing and magical mix of god given talent, scholarly technical skill and a deep understanding about the nature of his equine partner along with the humility to not ask for the impossible ... then Steffen wraps up the package with a masterful presentation style that engages and inspires his audience.
Steffen Peters is the total deal and you will re-live his special Masterclass moments for many years to come. I was fortunate enough to attend Steffen's Masterclass at EQUITANA Melbourne 2010 and still marvel at the power of the "Less is More" concept which is the understated skill of this consumate horseman. Steffen was loved by the capacity crowd at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds "big top" two years ago and I know you will love him too!
He was equally and charming when I caught him munching on an Aussie burger at the food court (right).
Australia is celebrating the opportunity to see this acclaimed "Master" work over 3 days with a variety of riders from FEI right down to junior pony clubbers - Steffen matched our enthusiasm as he welcomed the challenge to improve "ordinary/everyday" riders and help them to make the most of their strong points and ease the impact of the issues that many of us face living in remote areas with limited access to expert help.
The Ultimate Masterclass with Steffen Peters welcomes not only the participating riders, but everyone can come along and be part of this unique experience. Trainers, coaches, club officials, interested family members, friends, professional and hobbyist riders are sure to learn a lot and have a fantastic 3 days with like minded enthusiasts!
The Ultimate Masterclass is a concept that is in the early days, but has high hopes of continuing to open the doors of opportunity to all dressage riders and those interested in the sport at amatuer or professional level.

The Masterclass mastermind Tricia Osborne reflected. "I have been disappointed that on many occasions people like me have been denied access to the "best" instructors.
This seems silly really, as we are the ones that need encouragement and support. By bringing a varied cross-section of the Australian dressage community together, I am sure that The Ultimate Masterclass concept will grow and foster a feeling of camaraderie that is sure to lead to all sorts of great networking opportunities and ultimately grow the sport - it is a real win/winand I am so proud to be a pioneer! The Ultimate Masterclass is a case of "small beginnings" but I know that it will grow!"
This Masterclass is a world first combining the technical and mental training methods of two internationally recognised specialists. Steffen Peters, Olympic and World Games medallist, who comes together with Jonah Oliver, a leading sports psychologist. (Pictured right with Nicole Magoffin)
These experts come ogether they combine the physical and mental aspects of reach the top in Dressage - the thinking rider's choice.
Whatever your level of experience, The Mitavite Munga Ultimate Master Class will help you achieve a better understanding of riding, training and performance techniques based on classical principles of horsemanship.
