After high school, Sarah went on to ride for Virginia Intermont College for one year before heading west. She attended Colorado State University where she graduated with a B.S. in Equine Science focusing in the areas of facility management, nutrition, disease management, and sales. She competed successfully with CSU owned horses on the CHJA circuit and in numerous hunter derbies . She went on to complete her internship at the prestigious Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Lexington, Kentucky where she worked in the neonatal and intensive care units.
During her time in Colorado, Sarah was privileged to work under a previous Grand Prix rider, Charles Throckmorton, and his daughter Linnea. During her stay at The Four Winds, Sarah assisted with the instruction of a competitive lesson program in addition to preparing and showing sale horses in the hunter and jumper divisions.
