In 2017, Sarah and her husband moved back to the West Coast, and in 2018 and 2020 Sarah syndicated two exciting young horses for her lineup:

 

2015 KWPN gelding 'Kanjer' and 2016 KWPN 'Liang'.

 

In 2022, Sarah added 2017 KPWN 'Maxson' to her string.

 

All three horses are showing tremendous promise for FEI and an exciting future ahead. Sarah's ultimate goal is to earn a spot to represent the United States on a future US Dressage Team.
