Sara has been riding and caring for horses for over 30 years. She has taken Equine Care classes from Waukesha County Technical College and Lakeshore Technical College.
Sara grew up riding dressage and hunt seat and had a passion for having fun with horses. She was introduced to the Saddlebred horse as a teenager and fell in love with the intelligence and sense of humor this breed is known for.
Currently she rides Saddleseat and has won the Academy regional championship in both showmanship and equitation.
She works with the American Saddlebred Horse Association on their Equine Welfare Advocacy Committee to provide education and training to horse owners and the general public on this wonderful breed.
She currently owns a rescue Saddlebred named Harley that you may get the chance to ride during lessons at the farm.
Sara is a member of 4-H, ASHA, USEF, OHSA, ASAC and is a certified Open Horse Show Judge.
Brittany (Bee) always says that you should be proud of how you did that day, and to always end on a good note. She grew up riding Hunters, Jumpers, Western Pleasure, Saddleseat, gaited horses, and pretty much anything else she could throw a leg over. Her mother at a young age declared their barn to be a “non-denominational horsehold”. So whether you want to go into lower-level dressage, saddleseat, or just gain skills to have more confidence out on the trails, Bee will be happy to help you. She believes a solid foundation is more important that rushing into the show ring, and she always stresses that no matter what ribbon you get, it’s more important that you’re proud of your ride.
Bee first began teaching in 2011, when she won overall high point champion at the NC State 4-H Horse Judging Competition, tried-out and landed spots on the National and World teams with coaches Dr. Bob Mowry of North Carolina State University, Robin Lynn of the NC Extension Horse Husbandry, and Laura Heins Harper of Hollow Oak Farm in Midland, NC. Bee traveled and judged on the The All-American Quarter Horse Congress judging team, the American Quarter Horse Association World Judging team, and was a member of the overall high point winning team at Eastern Nationals where she judged Saddlebreds, Arabians, Gaited Horses, and Stock Horses.
As early as age 9, she was Saddledeat Overall Grand Champion in N.C. at the State 4-H Horse Show, and followed several years consecutively after as a Saddleseat Champion and Reserve Grand Champion Saddleseat rider. She still enjoys judging smaller open shows throughout North and South Carolina and has been working at earning her judges card for USEF and AQHA.
Bee is proudly owned by 8 horses!
Evie started riding saddleseat at Knollwood Farms when she was 6 years old. She fell in love with horses and riding from a young age and loves taking care of them and helping others to learn about them.
When she moved down to Waxhaw she continued to ride saddleseat for a couple years and then decided to try her hand at Combined Training.
She has won many ribbons and year end awards even on horses she had to catch ride that day! Evie has earned 3 Athletic Letters from USEF and is well on her way to earning her fourth.
She is a 4-H horse club President and enjoys riding all English disciplines. She has a Quarter Horse named Zip that she rides dressage, jumping, bareback, backwards, you name it. They are best friends!
