Dressage and Jumping with the Stars 2017 – Australia welcomes John Cottle


Saddleworld News Article 15022017 1

March 24, 25 and 26, 2017 are the dates that you need to mark in your diary if you are to be part of the most fantastic showcase of young jumping horses, young dressage horses and ponies, young event horses and FEI Dressage classes from Prix St Georges through to Grand Prix and a Freestyle to music under lights.

With the inclusion of young event horses in this year’s program, the 2017 show will be the biggest and best yet, and sees history in the making! There is something for everyone, and a great opportunity for each of the disciplines to introduce their stars of the future to a broader audience.

Australia welcomes the chance to see in action, the highly acclaimed New Zealand competitor and coach, John Cottle who will assess all four classes of young jumping horses and ride the winners of the 4, 5, 6 and 7-year-old classes, to feel their scope and he will comment on their future potential and eventually name the 2017 Champion of Champions.

John is respected all over the world for his knowledge and success with jumping horses and gained enormous experience when he was based in Europe.  He has represented his country at two Olympic games (1984 Los Angeles Olympics and 1988 Seoul).

John Cottle’s horses have been named New Zealand’s Horse of the Year on 6 occasions, and he been the Grand Prix Rider of the Year 13 times. John has produced 6 Olympic horses and was the Showjumping Personality of the Year, twice.  He has been inducted into the New Zealand Horse of the Year, Hall of Fame and has also been a national coach (Level 4 qualified) and Chef D’Equipe for New Zealand teams, at a number of international events, including the appointment of the New Zealand Show Jumping team at the World Equestrian Games, France, 2014. 

Saddleworld is delighted that this internationally respected clinician will be conducting the Saddleworld Jumping Masterclass in 2017, and cordially invites you to be part of this ultimate educational experience!

A Saddleworld spokesperson said, “We are very proud to again be bringing the D&JWTS dressage and jumping Masterclasses to Australian enthusiasts as we know that seeing the world’s best horse people at work has guided many local riders, and they have gone on to prove themselves and their horses. The positive year-on-year improvement that has come about after three days of young horse assessments along with the expert commentary, then the training hints shared at the Saddleworld Masterclass, has provided invaluable knowledge and the tools to improve riders, trainers, and horses.”
