About Sarah Casey
At 7 years of age Sarah discovered her mother's old riding helmet and bat which had been carefully hidden in her grandparents basement. Shortly after for her 8th birthday she began riding lessons at a local stable on a steady grey Arabian mare. Right from day one she was exposed to riding and working with all types of horses from Saddlebreds to Warmbloods and Akhal Tekes to Lipizzans. The earliest years were spent primarily learning and competing in the Hunter/Jumper disciplines. Around age 11 she had her first dressage lesson with Hubert Rohrer, who at that time was an FEI dressage judge and formerly from the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. Thus the seed was planted for her lifelong devotion to the art and practice of classical training for the good of the horse and rider.
