Sarah Mitchell-Sheppard

Sarah is a qualified BHS instructor known for her enthusiasm and motivation and who prides herself on sharing her passion and confidence with her clients.

Having ridden from a young age, upon leaving school Sarah went on to Sparsholt College where she obtained a First Class BSc Honours degree in Equine Studies. She then worked as a lecturer at Sparsholt where she gained her PGCE and QTLS. During her five years there, Sarah taught and competed in her spare time across all key disciplines.

In 2012, Sarah started out as a freelance instructor and also worked at Clarendon Stud, breaking young horses and preparing them for the sales.

SMS Equestrian, Sarah's childhood dream, came to fruition in 2014 - based from The Stables in Fovant, a yard her and her family built up from just a few fields!

As well as teaching, Sarah continues to compete on a regular basis. She lives with her husband Lee, their son Tyler and their dog, Theo, and in any spare time she has, enjoys snow boarding and socialising.
