Jeremy Steinberg Dressage Clinic - May 8 & 9, 2010

Jeremy Steinberg made his first appearance at a national venue in 1996 at the USDF Young Rider Championship where he earned Individual Gold and helped to win the Team Silver for Region 6. Since then, he has gained much attention in regional and national dressage press as "one to watch" among world class US competitors. For more than a dozen years, Jeremy trained with the late Dietrich von Hopffgarten. Jeremy also rode at the Gestut Vorwerk in Germany, training with Martina and Ralf Hannover, long time pupils of the late Herbert Rehbein. Jeremy works whenever possible with his friends Guenter Seidel and Debbie McDonald and usually spends part of the late Winter or early Spring with Guenter in San Diego.

Jeremy’s most successful Grand Prix horse to date has been Jennifer Smith’s Parocco. Parocco had an extremely successful show seasons in 2005, 2006 and early 2007 at Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle winning every regional championships, the DG Bar High Performance Grand Prix in 2006 and many finishes in the top 3 at CDI’s throughout California between 2005 and 2007. In 2006 Parocco was invited to compete in the Washington International Horse Show which Jeremy declined on competing in due to plans for the 2007 show and travel season coming together. Parocco and Jeremy’s partnership culminated in their making the 2007 US League Final and earning the invitation to compete in the invitational competition at the World Cup before Parocco's well deserved retirement.

Jeremy teaches daily lessons to riders of all levels, as well as riding and training horses from Training Level through Grand Prix. Horses Jeremy has trained up through the Grand Prix level include Sinbad, Hawkesbury, Valiant Prince, Axyonx, Hallmark, Grand Glissando, Eloge II, Frisco, Parocco and most recently Elisienne. Jeremy enjoys teaching, emphasizing an environment conducive to learning classical dressage and good horsemanship. His goal for his students is to understand the basic philosophies of dressage, enabling them to work successfully with their own horses.
