The beginning of a passion

Sara grew up on the east coast of Italy in the city of Ancona. She first rode a horse when she was just four years old on a family vacation in northern Italy, which is where her love of horses began.  Her mother encouraged her to try many types of sports, instruments, and activities when she was young. Sara asked to take horseback riding lessons when she turned eight years old. Just a year later, she gave up all other sports to pursue her passion for horses and give 100% of herself to the equestrian world. She went on to give up two other passions she had for horses: Conservatory as a pianist, and a law degree.
