The world's best teachers are now available to you, one-on-one, in your home or at the barn.
We have over 2,000 happy Masterclass members! Here's what some of them are saying:
I’m a professional rider and trainer, and have a full-service program in Rancho Santa Fe, California focusing primarily on creating confident, happy, successful horse and rider pairs in the hunter, jumper, and equitation rings.
I work primarily with amateur riders, and always find that confidence is the biggest pain point. As a trainer, I want to give my clients the best possible chance of success, which is why I’m a supporter of Masterclass and the resource it provides. Many of my clients have full-time jobs, families, and other life obligations, and these courses give them a way to continue learning and improving even when they can’t make it to the barn.
I love the mental skills course on confidence for all of my riders, and having worked alongside Archie Cox for many years under Karen Healey, I know and trust his teaching methods and his understanding of the amateur rider, so I was thrilled to see him as an instructor.
I appreciate the care that was put into choosing instructors that are tuned into the amateur rider and trustworthy enough for me to feel comfortable with what my clients are learning. I also appreciate that the courses are easy for clients to use alongside my program and actually complement my training style. Thanks for caring about the trainers who are dedicated to their students’ and horses’ success and well-being!

I decided to purchase my Masterclass membership before my very first eventing show in Copper Meadows, CA. Two weeks before the show I was so stressed, my riding skills suddenly declined and I could not even remember simple jumping course my trainer gave me.
I saw Anne Paterakis’ Masterclass and decided to test her methods - they worked wonders. I also used many of Anne Kursinki’s and Ian Millar’s suggestions on how to work with my horse under stress.
As a result, I had a fabulous first show, was calm and placed 6th. I would not be able to be so relaxed during the show without the Masterclasses. I work every day with my workbooks and listen to masterclasses every time I drive in the car. Both I and my trainer have seen a great improvement in my skills while jumping and dressage training and mental abilities to cope with stress.
As far as my horse goes, he is a great, super affectionate and intelligent TB gelding, always eager to work hard. I absolutely love working with him and riding him.
While I work regularly with my trainer, working through the Masterclass videos and workbooks has given me new ideas and inspiration to help my horse be the best he can be. The teachers have all explained things at a level where I sit back and think "wow, he/she is right, that totally makes sense" and it was such basic knowledge that we sometimes don't stop to remember in the daily push of training and competing.
When watching Annette's classes I didn't feel that I needed a lot of the confidence building as my horse and I were working as a team, until yesterday, when the course was quite tough and there were a lot of crashes, including us. It was the first time where both he and I got a little shaken up and I realized I needed to go back and revisit some of her tips so I can help us get back to where we have been. That's what I like so much about the Masterclass series - it's all topics, all disciplines, but yet every rider can take something away from them. Maybe not right at that moment, but at some point, there is going to be that scenario where you realize you need and can apply something you learned!
