Beyond the hunter jumper and equitation world, I also possess a strong background in natural horsemanship, dressage, and eventing. I have continually competed on my own horse in the 3'3" and 3'6" jumpers. I have impeccable horsemanship, placing great emphasis on the concept that the horse comes first. I ride with soft hands, strong legs, a focused mind, and a compassionate heart. Horseback riding is my passion in life and I hope to pursue a career in it.
Duties of Current Occupation
My name is Sarah Felman and I have recently graduated from Mount Holyoke College with a double major in anthropology and psychology and I am currently living in the Western Massachusetts. I am seeking employment as a professional horse trainer.
Equine Work Experience
I am an equestrian with over sixteen years of riding and training experience. I began riding at the age of seven years old in Gainesville, Florida. I trained with Denna Johnson in 2008 and won a scholarship through competing in the College Bound Invitational and competed at the Marshall and Sterling Finals in 2009. In 2011 I rode with Ella Rukin and placed fifth in the nation at the Marshall and Sterling Finals in 2011 and competed on the HITS Ocala circuit in 2012. In 2013 I went to college and joined the Mount Holyoke varsity hunter seat equestrian team. Within my first semester on the team I was given the 'Most Valuable Player' award and throughout my college years I competed at regional and tournament horse shows. In 2017 I placed third in the region and competed in the intermediate division throughout my senior year.
