Dani Sussman has more than fifteen years of experience in Eventing, Dressage, and Hunter/Jumpers. Her main focus is on training competitive equestrians and young horses to be top-tier Eventing competitors. Dani’s professional equestrian career began in Northern California, where she first started working as a trainer and coach and where she became a respected rider and instructor. As a Pony Club “A” graduate and because of her love for Pony Club, she was very active with many clubs in her area and did ratings through the C2 level.

Dani then moved to Washington State where she trained with 2-time Olympian, Amy Tryon. For four years, Dani traveled with Amy across the US and England, riding and grooming for the top event rider. Also while in Washington, Dani had a thriving business of over 30 clients of varying skill levels. In addition to working for Amy, Dani was the head rider for Elite Dressage Sales where she trained imported German Dressage horses for sale and also rode for Thumbs Up Farm, preparing horses and ponies at all levels for both the hunter and jumper rings.

In 2013, Dani relocated to Larkspur, Colorado, and purchased the stunning 37-acre property where she now runs her own riding and training business, Aspire Eventing.

“A product that helps me in my training program are my Coronet bits. I am thoroughly impressed with the quality and functionality of the Coronet bits!  They have a huge selection to address all disciplines and training styles.  They are well engineered at an excellent price point,” states Dani.
