Super Star Trainer Heading Down Under for EQUITANA Auckland

World renowned German Gold Medal Dressage coach, Jonny Hilberath has been announced as the highly anticipated Dressage Star Presenter for EQUITANA Auckland this November!

As well as being the trainer of the current World Number 1, 2 & 3 riders, he is also the secret weapon of the unstoppable Gold Medal winning Rio Olympic German Team including:

  • Isabel Werth
  • Kristina Broring-Sprehe
  • Dorothee Schneider
  • Sonke Rothernberger

Along with many others riders, all of whom credit their incredible success to his guidance! But he’s the first to admit that while a team may look unbeatable on paper, it is all about bringing that into the ring.

Hilberath is undoubtedly one of the best coaches in the world and is bringing his Olympic winning approach to his two- hour masterclass at EQUITANA!

EQUITANA will be your only opportunity to learn from the Master of German Dressage as he takes you through the everyday techniques he uses to train the world's best combinations, that give them the winning edge.

Hilberath has trained many horses to Grand Prix level and last competed in 2010. He doesn’t believe in harsh or complicated training methods, preferring instead to work with the horse, to get the animal on side.

Key to his methods are the basics – get those right and he says the rest will be easier to achieve. A harmonious connection between horse and rider will be rewarded many times over.

As the star dressage presenter for EQUITANA Auckland, Hilberath will be conducting the two-hour Equitak Excel Dressage Masterclass on Sunday afternoon, as part of the Super Sunday of Dressage, which will also feature the EQUITANA New Zealand Open ATEED Grand Prix Dressage competition. As well as the Equitak Excel Masterclass, Hilberath will also run two other shorter education sessions during the event.

Hilberath will leave you captivated as he takes audiences through the levels from Prelimariy through to Grand Prix. Wether you are an experience rider or new to the horse world, there will be guidance and advice to suit all riders and a chance to be face to face with with icon of the sport.

Get ready for a masterclass like no other that will leave you captivated long after the event has concluded.
