The third member of the eventing squadron is the 'New Jersey Tornado', Sara Gumbiner. Sara has officially survived one year working for us. When she started in Aiken last year, I wasn't sure what I was in for...well folks, I am impressed!
This gal has it all: style, class, a great feel for horses, and a college degree in Vet Science,(which does come in handy in this job). is a Super Duper rider that has improved 200% in this short time. She works like a convict, loves the horses, and has built a great partnership with her horse 'Waffles'. Our plan is to take 'Waffles' to a couple of Prelims in Aiken and then put him on the market to sell.
Sara has showed huge commitment driving to the barn, which takes 1 hour 20 minutes every day from New Jersey. She is never late,(that I know about), and never complains about the huge daily drag of driving so much. She is living in the barn apartment this year in Aiken and I wish her lots of luck at sleeping in till 6:58 am every morning.
This girl will be one of America's top riders in the future. I wish Sara all the best and thank her for being a critical part of my horses' success.
