SMS Equestrian is run by Sarah Mitchell-Sheppard, a qualified BHS Instructor.

Sarah and her team teach from Sarah's yard in Fovant where they have a selection of horses for all ages and abilities.

SMS Equestrian prides itself on being fun and friendly with small group sizes, SMS is linked with the British Horse Society as an approved Centre and is also a Pony Club Centre so there are plenty of opportunities to gain recognised certificates and badges whatever your ability.

Sarah and her team are known for their enthusiasm and motivation and pride themselves on being able to share this passion and confidence with their clients.

Having ridden from a young age, upon leaving school Sarah went on to Sparsholt College where she obtained a First Class BSc Honours degree in Equine Studies. She then worked as a lecturer at Sparsholt where she gained her PGCE and QTLS. During her five years there, Sarah taught and competed in her spare time across all key disciplines.

In 2012, Sarah started out as a freelance instructor and also worked at Clarendon Stud, breaking young horses and preparing them for the sales.

SMS Equestrian, Sarah's childhood dream, came to fruition in 2014 - based from The Stables in Fovant, a yard her and her family built up from just a few fields.
