An inspiring and natural teacher, Sarah trains horses and their owners using logical and ethical techniques. Motivated by the welfare of the horse, her priority is to find a way to make it easy for the horse to do the right thing rather than to impose a set system and to give the owner the confidence to carry on in a similar way.

Sarah covers everything from the horse’s environment, physical and mental health to training methods and programmes and encourages owners to work with an open mind and an open heart.

Sarah’s Journal gives a dynamic account of the day to day work of an Intelligent Horsemanship Recommended Associate and reveals a genuine warmth and feel for horses and the people around them.

Amongst the numerous cases I have dealt with there have been horses that will not load, have refused to have their bridle on or to pick their feet up. One horse used to lie down in the trailer he was so frightened of travelling. Other horses have been difficult to ride, frightened of motorbikes or water. I have been able to help all of these horses. I also specialise in putting the first halter on wild ponies, teaching them to lead and to be handled. My methods are logical to the horse and involve the use of their own body language rather than the use of artificial aids.”

  • “Just to let you know we had a wonderful time at camp and he walked straight in the lorry to leave and come back. I couldn’t have gone without your help and I can’t thank you enough!”

  • “Just a note to say I can’t thank you enough for all your help with Minty! You are a star. Needless to say, I couldn’t have done it without you.”

  • “You are so professional.  That’s what makes the difference also.”

  • “What would I have done with Dillon without you? I didn’t dream we would get on so well with these sessions. You have given me the confidence to deal with this and also really opened my eyes to the understanding of it all. Every time we have sessions, our bond grows and I really notice a difference in Dillon every time. I never believed this way of horsemanship could have such amazing results.”

  • “I am absolutely delighted I contacted you and very grateful for all your insight and advice.”

    Carol Forster
  • “Sarah can I just say what a privilege it is to work with you with Sampson and that you have made such a difference to my thoughts on training and how I think and behave with both my horses. You are an inspiration and a pure pleasure too.”

    Theresa Hunt
  • “Just done a practice run. Loaded perfectly. Travelled very quietly and unloaded like a saint. So pleased and thank you.”

    Emma Lewis
  • “Thank you so much for your help today. He was calm the whole time and learned to fully trust you. When I took over and he loaded like a pro, I was so pleased and knew I’d done the right thing by asking for your help. It was an incredibly stress-free experience for both Jasper and myself.”

    Julie Ferguson
  • “Jaine was so attentive to my body language and mirrored every gear change from me; slow walk to fast walk to jogging back to very slow walk, it has brought a bit of a lump to my throat to be honest as this is huge progress for her”
