About Me

Sarina's journey in the equestrian world began at the age of 7, evolving into a competitive career in hunter jumper riding from age 8 through her teenage and young adult years. As a young rider she was an active member of the United States Pony Club and is now the Center Administrator of a local pony club riding center. In high-school Sarina rode for her school's Interscholastic Equestrian Association team and made it to the regional zone finals two years consecutively.

With over a decade of experience in teaching riding lessons and horse training, Sarina's expertise has been honed through diverse experiences. She spent two formative years as a working student under Shannon Lilley, significantly influencing her riding and training style which is where she completely fell in love with 3 day Eventing. In recent years, Sarina has immersed herself in dressage training under the guidance of renowned trainer, Vicky Matisi, in Santa Cruz County.

Sarina operates her training program primarily from Ramor Oaks Riding Club in Watsonville, CA and her lesson program is centered at Monterey Bay Horsemanship and Therapeutic Center in La Selva, CA. 

She takes pride in fostering strong connections between horse and rider, prioritizing horse care and management, and tailoring each program to the unique needs of both horse and rider.
