Sandy was born and raised in Vero Beach FL. "I grew up galloping horses in Ocala during the summers and training with a local German trainer. Once out of High School I joined the Air Force and traveled around in the US, and during this time kept horses on station. Once I became settled in Virginia my passion for dressage exploded!
I was blessed with a schoolmaster and learned a lot from him. I have always specialized in difficult horses. The reward is awesome when they figure everything out! Currently I train with Debbie Bowman and Carol Bishop. I have also had the reward of breeding and raising Hanoverians.
I have completed the United States Dressage Federation “L” program with Distinction and I am a USDF Bronze/Silver/Gold Medalist and Silver MSF bar. I own/operate a Training/Sale/Boarding operation and travel for judging/lessons and clinics! I am a member of USDF, USEF, SVDA, AHS, AWS, FSA, NADWA.
