Hello Fab Friends!
I'll start by saying that Sarah was blown away by the hospitality in Omaha and at the horse show - she finds that it is the best bar-none. For Sarah, no matter where she goes, she enjoys her customers immensely and considers them the best in the world. Some of which she has known for a long time and others whom she was thrilled to meet and looks forward to seeing again in the future.
Sarah was incredibly impressed by one of the new friends she made in Jim Dratfield Jim is an extraordinary PETographer based in New York and Los Angeles. He is commissioned for photo sessions all across America and even into Europe. Stay tuned for more on Jim's incredible work in a feature coming soon to the blog.
Our next stop will be at the beautiful destination, Old Salem Farm, in North Salem New York - the heart of Westchester's horse country for their Spring series.
In its 36th year, the show at Old Salem will feature 2 weeks of fabulous Equestrian Sport. The events take place May 8-13 and May 15–20 with an additional competition date of May 6, Welcome Horse Show Day.

Old Salem Farm hosts several horse shows each year. In its history, Old Salem Farm has hosted United States Olympic Team Selection Trials and World Cup qualifier classes.
The fact that Old Salem is set on gorgeous grounds is just the start. The attendance of elite horses and riders and the opportunity for fantastic social gatherings is something really special.

A few examples of Sarah's gorgeous creations:
Speaking of the jewelry, the top 3 finishers in the Dressage Team Challenge in Omaha received these beautiful necklaces donated and presented by Sarah on behalf of Rowan O’Riley, the event sponsor.
The Team Challenge was created to provide NextGen and amateur riders, as well as seniors, juniors and young riders, a valuable team building opportunity to help strengthen the North American dressage community. It is part of the Omaha Equestrian Foundation’s commitment to developing dressage and jumping in the Midwest.
Congratulations to Jami Kment, Karen Pavicic, and Camille Bergeron!!!
