What is Sisu? A uniquely Finnish concept, "Sisu" is loosely translated as having ultimate determination, fortitude and persistence, an inner strength that sustains an action against all odds.
Being of Finnish descent, Suzanne identifies with the idea of Sisu personally and finds many connections to the horse business: riding, teaching, and training. It takes inner strength and passion to stay focused on the end goal and persistence and determination to train horses and riders. Suzanne strives to pass on the qualities of sisu to her students and also the horses she trains.
Suzanne Wepplo, a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist, is a talented FEI trainer and competitor as well as a gifted teacher. Although specializing in dressage, Suzanne and her students have successfully trained and competed horses in hunter, jumper and eventing disciplines. Suzanne has extensive experience training green horses through advanced levels of dressage and jumping. Suzanne enjoys teaching both children and adults. Most recently, Suzanne has had much success training and showing her Off the Track Thoroughbred, Puppylove, in dressage. Puppy has advanced through the levels, competing at 3rd level in 2012, and won several national awards.
