Dear Sabine, Jochen, Connie and Terri Anne, First let me say thank you for allowing me to participate in the clinic - I wasn't expecting that, and I certainly wasn't expecting a certificate. But seriously, the course was excellent!!  I learned so much and will highly recommend it to our students.  Even if they have no desire to become a saddle fitter, the knowledge they will gain will be invaluable in the field in assessing horses they work with.  Also participating gave me great insight into how your program works and what is involved - at least in the Equine Ergonomist aspect of things - much more so than just observing would have. Everything about the program was very classy, professional, intense - but also fun. Thank you again, it was a privilege to attend and work with you all.  Claire was also a delight. Keep me posted on your thoughts about the online education, and let us know if there is anything we can do to help with Saddlefit 4 Life® or H.I.P.P.O.H. Big hugs to you all.
