A lifelong equestrian of varying disciplines, Warwick Schiller moved from his home country of Australia in his 20s to the United States to pursue his dream of training horses. He focused his competitive efforts on reining, eventually becoming a National Reining Horse Association Reserve World Champion and representing Australia at the 2010 & 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games. His unique ability to convey his knowledge to others became apparent when he successfully went on to coach individuals who garnered coveted reining titles and a fellow WEG team member. In 2012, Warwick Schiller Performance Horsemanship was founded in an effort to help individuals form a better relationship with their horses and a cultivate deeper understanding of the foundation on which all successful horse training is built. Warwick’s life as a videographer and multi-discipline educator began. He also set course for many, many clinics
around the world.
Jim Masterson was the Equine Massage Therapist for the 2006 through 2014 USET Endurance Teams, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World Cup, Pan American and World Games competitions. Jim teaches a unique method of equine bodywork for equine massage therapists and horse owners in which the practitioner recognizes and follows the responses of the horse to touch to release tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. When he first became interested in equine massage in 1997, Jim recognized that the horse exhibits certain neurological responses to touch as it releases tension in the body. Using those responses to guide his work, he developed a system in which the horse participates in the process by showing the practitioner where tension has accumulated, precisely how much pressure is needed to release it, and when it has been released. The result is an effective method of equine massage body work that anyone can learn to use to improve performance while at the same time opening new levels of communication and trust with the horse.
