Sarah Higgins grew up on her mother's yard in Chester where juggling horses and school became everyday life. Sarah had many successes at this time in the dressage world when she secured the ride on Ian Woodhead's young dressage pony, Gigolo. Whilst Sarah and Gigolo were 16 and 6 years old respectively, they won Saumur CDIP on the way to winning team Bronze at the Pony European Championships in Jaszkowo, Poland. Since then, Sarah became a feature on the Young Rider squad competing successfully in France, Belgium, Germany and Ireland where she won the Irish National Championships.
Sarah is the youngest person in the country to hold her UKCC Level 3 qualification for Dressage Training and is also training to become a List 3a judge.
