“Sarah is an amazing coach and trainer. I am impressed how she can work with any horse and rider to systematically help both to reach their full potential. Her positive coaching and training style brings out the best in both the horses and humans. She cares about the horses and the students, and genuinely wants to help the rider reach their goals. It’s the best of both worlds- students are well prepared for competiton and are supportive to each other. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Sarah. I long wish our paths would have crossed earlier!”

“Sarah worked with my horse at a tricky time in his riding career. He was a gangly and rambunctious 4 year old, still learning where his legs were. Sarah was amazing and so patient with him. She took her time with him and created a positive learning environment for him to excel in. She truly changed his outlook on work! Sarah was a key factor in our success!”

- Emily, USDF Silver medalist and dressage trainer


“Sarah has been a riding coach and, even more importantly, a professional mentor of mine for the past 10 years. She is invaluable to me when it comes to developing my Young Horses, coaching my Young Riders, and just plain moral support! We are so fortunate to have her here in Area VII!”

- Ashleigh, Event trainer


“My partner in crime, Sorento and I are honored to be working with Sarah and to be a part of the Stone’s Throw family! We have been with Sarah for sometime now and have already learned so much! She has challenged us and tapped into our potential as a team. We are so excited to continue this new chapter on our journey together. Looking forward to a great season!

-Rachel, YR working student


“I am thrilled with the progress Sarah is making with my mare. I appreciate how easy Sarah is to communicate with and how she listens to and understands my goals and priorities. Every time I see my mare perform she is relaxed, happy going, and I am excited by her physical and mental progress. I look forward to continuing to keep my horse in training with Sarah!”

-Delane, Young Horse Owner


“Zinnia ( Hanoverian / TB cross) is my one and only home bred so far, so she is very special to me. I compete as an adult- amateur in hunter-jumpers primarily, but the most important thing to me is having a confident, well-rounded horse who can do more than go around the arena. I am so happy with the foundation Sarah is giving her and the instincts and patience she has in developing youngsters!”
