    I clinic with her any chance I get. She comes over to the Battle Creek Hunt Club monthly when she has time, and I ride with her there. She is great! Very educational, patient, funny, she has a sense of humor, enjoyable to be around but yet serious. She gets the job done.

    How long have you ridden with Erika? I took a lesson from her last month, and she is going to meet my horse later this month.

    Well my horse is a 4 year old perch/tb. He's been broke since last fall. I have been riding him 3x per week or so this winter. I would like him to jump. For now I want someone to help me with collection, getting himself to use his body, be round, really receptive to aids etc... Erika Treis-Peterson is the closest trainer to me that I have investigated so far.

    I am very happy that you got Dawn out and she was able to help you! That is wonderful! For Trainers, what kind of Training are you looking for?

    Yes, there is Dawn Bruin-Slot, she is very good. She charges $75 for a session, and her sessions are very indepth and very educational. Then there is Renna VanDoorin, he is very good and he charges $100.

    There are a few more who are very good as well, but I cannot recall their names. You can call Millbrook Tack, ask for the English Department and ask them for Saddle Maker/Fitters numbers - there are a couple others that they have, that I do not.

    Renna's #'s are : (517) 468-1177 and (248) 921-6446

    I have to get you Dawn's #. She is on facebook, easy to find :)

    Noticed that you posted to a thread about saddle fitting, and assume from your user name that you live in MI. Do you know of any saddle fitters on the west side of the state?
