“One glance at Sarah’s resume will tell you that she is educated, experienced and talented in her craft. Her quiet confidence, grace and harmony with horses is evident upon first seeing Sarah ride or interact with a horse from the ground. But, even better is her ability to teach this knowledge and experience that she possesses. She has a modesty and ease about her that makes everyone feel comfortable, regardless of their experience level. Sarah, as a trainer and coach, has the ability to bring out the best in her students. She is direct, precise and steady. She is encouraging and sympathetic, yet will push for more and better, methodically laying the groundwork and building them up to succeed.” ~Melita F.~

“I have known Sarah Dodge since she was a teenager and have always admired her abilities and positive attitude toward her riding and her horses. In the past several years I have had the opportunity to ride four very different horses with her as my trainer. Each of these horses presented challenges in a variety of ways but she was always able to find the “key” that allowed me to improve my skills and the performance of the horses. Sarah has been fortunate in having the opportunity of working and studying with some of the best riders/trainers in Europe and the U. S. From this and her subsequent experience training and teaching she has acquired a vast store of solutions for the ” little fixes” that are needed to keep the horse and rider on a positive and productive path. Sarah’s abilities as an instructor are equaled by her talent as a rider. I have had the chance to observe her as she trains very different types of horses. She always rides with tact and sensitivity and an innate sense of what each horse needs at a particular moment to enhance it’s progress.” ~Terri L.~

“Sarah is a rare find in that she is a teacher as well as a rider. Sarah is always patient with you and your horse. Sarah has brought my horse along from PSG to schooling GP. She has done this with the respect of my personal goal of training my horse myself. However, if I’m unable ride, I have no worries when Sarah is in charge of my horses care. Under Sarah’s direction, my medium dressage tests went up 5 to 10 points. I highly recommend Sarah if you desire a fair and classical approach to your training goals, while feeling and seeing amazing results.” ~Jennifer K.~
