Sarah was a very keen member of the Waveney Harriers Pony Club, riding on teams on various different horses, she too had the eventing bug so after several successes on her own horse was offered what was one of the most sought after jobs at the time, training/ riding for Major Alhusen (team gold medallist and individual silver medallist on Lochinvar 1968, Trainer of Laurieston, Richard Meade’s 1972 gold medal ride) where she was lucky enough to have the chance to compete on many of his horses before they were sent off to more experienced top riders or juniors. The years spent with the Alhusens were enjoyable, at times very exciting, but the experience gained for the future was invaluable.
After this time Sarah started a yard of her own in Norfolk where she had a full range of horses, from a young part bred Andalusian who went on to become National Champion three years running, to dressage horses and this is where she came to meet her future husband.
Sarah has had many successful horses who have been tricky to start with these are just a few of them, Mayday, Irish ad.med, MacArthur, Danish PSG and wonderful Apollo also Danish, Advanced.
Nowadays Sarah rides young horses at home and helps to produce ponies with her daughter Alice.
