Meet the Team
Sea Star Stable instructors are well accomplished equestrian themselves!
Instructor, Assistant Manager
Sarah came to SSS in 2011 as a student of Kara's and after over a year of observing and coaching from Kara, she has become our assistant instructor. Sarah lives at SSS full time and helps with daily duties as well as teaching lessons.
Sarah has been around horses almost her entire life. Starting around the age of 2, she had her first riding lesson and has been hooked ever since. Sarah has experience in hunter jumpers, where she competed up to the junior equitation level, and more recently has been eventing up to novice level. Starting at the age of 12, Sarah worked with young/inexperienced horses which gave her qualities such as patience and problem solving skills. She was given the opportunity to start teaching around the age of 14 and has thoroughly enjoyed watching the progress and enjoyment of each rider that she has helped since then. Sarah tries to make riding as fun and as positive as possible while developing a good base for correct riding.
Kat came to SSS in 2013 to get back in the saddle again after a 32-year hiatus. Although she can’t believe she waited so long, she is so thankful to have discovered such a special barn to continue her love affair with horses. She grew up on Long Island and started riding at an early age.
She enjoyed hunter jumpers, but soon discovered the fun of dressage and eventing! She managed feeding and did stall duty, taught beginner riders, and managed summer pony camps at Stony Hill Stable in Amagansett, NY. Kat has many years’ experience as an elementary school teacher.
She is often seen in the gardens at Sea Star... but when Kara gave her the opportunity to combine her passion for teaching and love of horses, she grabbed it. She now enjoys teaching SSS Saturday sessions!
Katelyn has been a SSS team member for a long time! She recently began teaching our Sunday
