October 2016: Dressage at Devon
One of the oldest shows in the country and one of the most beautiful show grounds overall is located in a small town called Devon just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The grounds are compact with competition and warm-up arenas, grandstand, a shopping area and nearly 900 stalls all on just 21 acres. My colleague and friend Ulf Wadeborn was finishing his S-judge testing with examiners Natalie Lamping and Jayne Ayers and I was his official scribe.

I passed my USDF 4th level Trainer and Instructor Exam. As it is the highest national level one can achieve in Dressage Education, an important career milestone in my career, and the culmination of 6 years of training, traveling between Los Angeles and Georgia, teaching and riding workshops and USDF Trainers symposiums. Finally came my final exam last month in Wilton, California.

A big thank you to all my wonderful clients who put their faith in me on a daily basis!!

I had the pleasure of traveling with my fellow dressage trainer, Lars Holmberg from Middle Ranch, CA to this highly educational event in West Palm Beach, Florida. Dressage training techniques for the development of horses and riders were analyzed and presented in both practical and theoretical sessions. Six top professional clinicians, Steffen Peters, Ingrid Klimke, Rudolf Zeilinger, Arthur Kottas and Bo Jena, were presenting riding demonstrations, long line sessions with speeches as to their philosophies and theories on their training approach. There were 13 panelists on stage who were in an open discussion with the clinician to what they saw happen in the arena. Some of the panelists were Christoph Hess, Stephen Clark, Gary Rockwell, Lendon Gray... It was very interesting to watch international trainers with different educational backgrounds and approaches to training interact with the panelists and even the audience. Let's face it we all want to become better riders and trainers and this was definitely a successful venue to go to. Education leads us to success and Education is a never ending process in our lifetime.

    "I have watched Susann ride in the shows and the way she treats her horses with such a gentle manner, and therefore getting the most out of her horses and receiving good scores. In addition, she is also a very beautiful rider." -- Kirsten Kuzmanic, CDS Show Manager, USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist
