CHR is lucky to partner with the following knowledgeable, professional, and talented individuals within our education program.

As a trainer born and raised by the Colorado wilds, Sarah brings a unique love and passion for her equine companions. Her entire life has revolved around gaining equine knowledge and experience, something that has on more than one occasion opened vast doors of opportunity. Fearlessly willing to face any equine challenge, her extensive and ever growing understanding of the equine mind allows for her to communicate in ways best-suited to individual equine needs. Sarah has been a trainer and clinician with CHR since 2013. Never overlooking a horse based on breed or gender, Sarah has worked with it all. From Shire Stallions to Arabian foals, Sarah’s passion extends to every aspect of equine life.
