"Susann has continually brought genuine joy as well as a classically trained approach to her work. With her deep bench of skill sets and knowledge of dressage, as well as her warm demeanor, she has added a lot to the local dressage community, and is an absolute pleasure to work with."
-- Kathleen Raine, USDF Gold Medalist, Bronze Medal Team 1994 WEG, World Cup Finals, Olympic Alternate 2000 Sydney
