Taking a break from competition to focus on school, Sara had the opportunity to work with and start several different young horses. She was able to assist Daisy in starting her up and coming 2014 hanoverian, Don Garth. After a couple years of young horses, she has had the opportunity to ride a trakehner gelding named Raffi, with whom she hopes to be able move up the jumper levels after making their A circuit debut in the 0.90m ring this past summer.  She finished her education in spring 2018 and is now a new nurse.
