Sarah Lawrence is an enthusiastic entrepreneur and professional three day event rider and trainer that has extensive experience starting horses for dressage, eventing, and racing for private farms and trainers. She is European trained in classical dressage and her foundation in the jumping derives from the theory of dressage over fences. She operates a small sales barn, teaches lessons and designed the 3D printed four way jump cup. Sarah has been an equine specific vet tech since 2015 at a large referral hospital and specializes in emergencies, surgery, and sports med.
"Giving horses the confidence and skills to achieve anything imaginable. Keeping it simple and fun."
Emphasizing on quality and balance when developing a horse, Sarah provides a strong foundation of basics and dressage for each horse and individually structures training programs to each horse's needs. She is known for producing confident, insightful horses with a wide range of experience with a solid foundation. Sarah spends time teaching horses the enjoyment of riding through the mix of elements and cross training with three day eventing and prioritizes rideability.
Sarah spends her time learning the art of dressage and horsemanship by her trainer and mentor Christophe Theallet. She worked alongside him starting young horses and training together.
"Over the years, I have stored away little quotes he has given me that I use in my daily training. He has a magical way of working horses and through his philosophy, I have been able to develop myself and my own philosophy. My favorite one that he learned from his mentor and friend, Patrick LeRolland, and passed to me was "Ask little, but often" -- Patrick Le Rolland. Christophe would often say "Ask little, reward often. A great rider is someone who is willing to go back to basics and is not afraid to take a step back if it isn't working." Christophe always reminds me "The horse doesn't have to be perfect. They have to be rideable!" These are quotes I live by when training and it proves itself.
"I love the feeling that I can accomplish anything on my horses, anytime, even if they haven't done it before. We make it fun and simple for the horses. I've made it part of program to do everything with them and have taught them the skills and confidence prior to make this possible.
As my mentor, Christophe Theallet taught me "The horse does not have to be perfect. They have to be rideable!" I practice just that. Making sure I have speed control and that they don't brace against my aids but understand each aid clearly all the while keeping the horses happy so they want to learn with you. My goal is to compliment a horses strengths, enhance their weaknesses and give them the best experience to be able to allow their riders to achieve what they want. Whether it is a trail ride or competition, the horse is equipped with the tools they need."-- Sarah
When I'm not riding, I am usually travelling and exploring new places with my husband, Bobby. We are hiking and exploring enthusiasts with a love for nature. We have travelled to many states and countries settling in with the locals and climbing mountains. Bobby operates a small 3D printing company which builds the jump cups and is an endurance trail runner/ ultra marathoner !
