Sarah works with horses of all types and levels, from those competing at Grand Prix to youngsters and those retraining from other careers.
So what's actually different?
Working progressively with German training scales, Sarah treats every horse as an individual, creating a tailored plan for each.She is passionate about creating a willing and enthusiastic athlete, so just as she does with riders, she finds and nurtures a horse's natural motivation and talent.
How does it work?
Training programs are created to suit a horse's temperament, level of fitness and intended use. Using cross-training and varied schooling routines Sarah keeps horses interested and balanced as their build strength and skill.
Sarah is happy developing high level competition horses, setting the foundations with youngsters, working with horses retraining or recovering from injury as well as just keeping any horse happy and fit for its owner.
Knowing how much goes on from out of the saddle to create a healthy and happy athlete, Sarah works with owners to ensure all elements of the horse’s management are looked after. Respecting each horse’s individual feeding, turn out and daily needs, she will also give an overview of saddle fit, physiotherapy, dentistry and veterinary work.
Sarah seeks the best from any horse or rider she works with but keeps ambitions and expectations appropriate to the individual she is working with.
