In her own words...
Hi, I’m Sara, 28yr old dressage rider from Hampshire. When I was younger I begged my parents for riding lessons- little did they know this is how it all begun. Up until I was 18 I rode in riding schools or shared some highland ponies, when I was 18 I managed to convince my parents to buy my first pony, which I was meant to produce for a pony club home and sell, it’s safe to say Basil is still with me and isn’t going anywhere.
When I decided university wasn’t for me I jumped straight into working on dressage yards which then progressed into freelance grooming, riding and teaching. Over the last 11 years from getting my first pony I have progressed (and increased my horse power) to training and competing up to PSG, with the hope of doing my first inter 1 this year.
I am now lucky enough to have my own yard where I can base myself and take horses (and owners) in for training.
My achievements to date include:
- Under 25 national novice champion - pingo
- Novice regional champion - pingo
- Elementary freestyle regional champion - Zeus
- Elementary reserve champion - Zeus
My ultimate aim is to have happy healthy horses – who also look good. I really believe that pulling on a smart outfit can really lift your mood and carry that into my riding, which is why working with Trendy Equine is such a pleasure. Kelly stocks all my favourite brands under one roof and will keep myself and my horses looking the best we can.
