Meet the Clinician/Judge: Susan Lang has been riding and showing horses for over 30 years, primarily in traditional dressage. However, in recent years she has become a supporter of Western Dressage, and earned her United States Equestrian Federation "R" Western Dressage judge's card. She has also recently completed the Western Dressage Association "Train the Trainer" clinic to assure that she continues developing her stills so she can help others. Susan focuses on making the rider aware of how the horse is positively affected by correct rider position, thereby creating a better-balanced horse that is confident in his work. She works well with horses and riders of all skill levels.

As the current President of Kansas Dressage and Eventing Association (KDEA) , and also a United States Dressage Federation L-Graduate schooling show judge, Susan guides the KDEA, judges regional dressage shows and also teaches out of Capall Baile in Wichita, KS. Having retired her 22 year old pinto Dutch warmblood from traditional dressage, where they showed through Fourth Level, she is now showing him at Level 1 in Western Dressage where they are enjoying a new career.

Susan has judged the Western Dressage World Show in past years, and is once again judging the World show in 2019. She has also judged Western Dressage at Morgan Grand Nationals on two occasions. In addition, Susan is also a licensed Dressage Technical Delegate and has knowledge of tack, attire and show procedures for both Western and English dressage.
