Karen Rohlf Dressage Naturally?

I wasn't sure where I should put this thread: in the dressage section or natural horsmanship :)
I have read part of a book Dressage Naturally and watched part of a dvd. All what I know about her is that she does dressage and uses PNH method. I found few useful exerciases in her book (but haven't tried it yet).
Few days ago I heard that she will be in Poland in June and I wonder if it is good idea to go to her course. It takes four days and is very expensive for me and I don't know if it is worth it. I wouldn't be with my horse but just as a listener.
I don't ride dressage professionally. I just want to make my horse comfortable in move with me on her back. Is her lessons so valuable that I would learn a lot even when being only listener?

I would go for it. I've learned quite a few things from her Youtube channel, and really like her. I ride HUS and WP now and still am able to use her methods, so you'd definitely benefit.

I've spent a little time reading her responses to student's questions, & feel that she's got a good understanding, & is kind to the horse. Pool noodle/prices? not so sure.

However, I read on a forum how KR inexplicably failed to communicate with a person who was ready to really get into her program & give her financial & other perks, plus, I've sent her a simple question twice now, that she's decided not to answer.

(Not that I expect long, detailed answers from someone whose program I'm not already involved in, but zero response doesn't seem right to me.)

It will be totally worth it! She's very creative and full of great ideas. I'd go if I were you!

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Thank you for your responses! :) I still don't know if I could go, because it all depends on money, but I will definitely try :)
