Champion European rider/trainer Anky Van Grunsven was brought to Australia in 1998 to present a dressage master class.
The occasion needed some enhancement and it was decided to combine it with a young dressage horse competition. This competition is now the Australian
Young Dressage Horse Championships with qualifying events all over Australia and run under official Equestrian Australia rules.
Since its inception the event has grown to become the most prestigious young horse event in Australia. In 2002 DWTS introduced the Young Jumping
Horse Championship and the event became known as Dressage & Jumping with the Stars (DJWTS). The young dressage & jumping horse program is supported
by other exciting classes to ensure our spectators are provided with an event to remember. The Dressage and Jumping Master Classes are a feature on
Saturday. In the evening spectators are entertained with the fabulous Grand Prix Freestyle.
Presented by the elite German dressage barn "Performance Sales International"
and a host of prominent
Australian sponsors PSI Dressage & Jumping with the Stars is an event not to be missed. Conducted over three days at Werribee Park, National Equestrian Centre, it is a great place to catch up with friends, shop in the extensive Trade
Village and enjoy the Young Horse spectacular.
