Dressuur


Born in Germany, Steffen Peters has been based in the United States since 1985 and became a U.S. citizen in 1992.

In 2006, Steffen and Floriano swept all three phases of competition at the 2006 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National Grand Prix Dressage Championship in Gladstone, N.J., landing them the anchor spot on the bronze medal-winning team at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games. Floriano and Steffen were the alternates on the 2004 Athens Olympic team. He won his first Olympic medal, a team bronze, at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games aboard Udon. He competed on the U.S. team at the London 2012 Olympics.

2007 was a breakout year for Steffen and his replacement horse, Lombardi 11. They traveled to New Jersey from California to win the USEF/Collecting Gaits Farm Festival of Champions at the Grand Prix level and traveled to Aachen, Germany, to represent the U.S. in the CDIO3*.

Steffen and Ravel amassed a remarkable record. Ravel won every competition he entered leading up to the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong, including the 2008 USEF Selection Trials. At the Olympic Games he ended up fourth by the slimmest of margins, behind horses far more experienced. It was Ravel's first competition outside the United States. Ravel's 2008 victory at the Festival of Dressage Champions made Steffen the National Grand Prix Champion for the third consecutive year - a feat he accomplished on a different a horse each of those years.

Ravel and Steffen dove into 2009, winning the Grand Prix at the Exquis Dressage World Masters in Wellington, Florida. At the FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas, they rewrote history, beating out nine-time (and defending) World Cup champion Anky van Grunsven and Isabell Werth to win both the Grand Prix and the Freestyle. Ravel and Steffen traveled to Germany for the CDIO Aachen, where the pair won all three tests: the Grand Prix, the Grand Prix Special and the Grand Prix Freestyle. This marked the first time an American combination had ever achieved this feat.

In 2010, Ravel and Steffen travelled to Wellington, Florida, to take part in Exquis World Dressage Masters competition. They beat some of the very best in world on their way to winning the Grand Prix Test and placing second in the Freestyle.

Steffen and his wife, Shannon, operate a busy training facility in the San Diego, California, area.
