Hello, horsey friend–

Today you can have the opportunity to meet our experts, learn about their passion for lunging, and watch an informational video from the UK on “How and Why We Lunge”.

Who are we? 


Birgit Klas-Bastian

Brigit has over 25 years of horse experience. She has been a barn manager, as well as the head of different riding clubs.  Her passion has always been for groundwork, especially lunging. She has learned from many great masters and completed several certifications with the German Equestrian Federation (FN). She has a trainer B license, and gives courses in groundwork, lunging and double lunging several times a year.

For the past two years, Brigit has worked at Finca Barock, where she trains Spanish horses — Andalusian and Lusitano, Frisian, Baroque Pintos and Warmbloods.

 “We offer the perfect cross training to keep your horse in shape.”


Sue Nicole Susenburger 

Sue trained horses for equestrian vaulting and taught lunging for 15 years. Sue has seen amazing results using lunging as a cross-training method for horses. She has completed two lunging exams (level II and III) and earned her Trainer license in equestrian vaulting at the German Equestrian Federation (FN).

While coaching vaulting in the U.S., Sue started sharing her lunging expertise at a friend’s local barn. When she tried to order lunging equipment, she discovered there was no place in the United States to purchase what she needed. It was then that she realized just how uncommon it is in the U.S. to use lunging as a gymnastic-like cross-training exercise for horses.

Alex Susenburger 

Alex is the owner of Finca Barock, and a professional horse trainer and salesperson. She has been been on the horse’s back since she was three years old. She has international show experience, and trains and sells mainly baroque horses.

“Finca Barock is excited to support the online platform Lunging Training. There is clearly a demand for instructions in lunging as an efficient cross training for horses. I have 20 sales horses and would not want to work without lunging as cross training. Riding on a loose and well trained horse based on good cross exercise is a pleasure. I give several times a year weekend courses in lunging for my clients.”

Many, many more…

Further, we collaborate with an extended partner network of about 10 people with horse and lungeing experts.
