My name is Sarah and I’m a young professional in Ventura, California. By day, I do industrial real estate management and development. By evening and weekend I am an amateur eventer, training with Laurie Canty Training Stables.
I grew up doing saddleseat and spent many years just pleasure riding and did a bit of western and trail class too. In summer 2009 I took my first eventing lesson. I got hooked pretty quick. Entering this sport as an adult and from a completely different riding background makes for some interesting moments!
Hannah is a lovely TBxWB mare who came into my life in March 2015. We are enjoying getting to know each other. She’s a well trained horse with hunter/jumper experience, and plenty of personality!
My former partner was the handsome and wonderful Bohemian. I adopted Hemie in April 2012 and we enjoyed 3 years together before he moved on to a more advanced rider. He is an ex-racehorse and former TV star in the HBO series “Luck” which was cancelled after the first season.
My previous mount, Spirit, and I enjoyed just over 2 years together, each teaching the other quite a bit.
The name Eventing In Color is a nod to the bold and fun cross-country colors eventers wear, and the excitement and childlike joyfulness I find captured in this sport and from horses in general.
