She has also been the recipient of the Monty Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award. According to Sandy, her lifelong passion for horses began “when my cells started to divide”. She spent the first third of her career as a veteran three-day eventer on the East coast, and then turned her focus to reiners and cowhorses.
Sandy’s diverse knowledge and success in various disciplines, her keen understanding of how horses think and learn, her graceful riding and concise presentation, make her an internationally renowned clinician. Her passion for sharing all that horses have taught her, culminated in writing a book called Reining Essentials and filming many instructional DVD’s.

Competitors on all levels and disciplines seek to develop her signature polish in their own performance horses.
