Training & Lessons


 Stone’s Throw Farm provides the unique opportunity for every student to customize their lesson and training to suite their individual needs.  Students have the option to decide how many rides or lessons they require for each month.  Sarah is still actively competing and provides coaching at many of the registered Area VII events.  Every spring Sarah provides a XC camp to prepare her students for the upcoming season.  Throughout the year many opportunities are provided to school many of the area’s courses as well as attend smaller practice shows.   All training rides and lessons are all conducted by Sarah and not a working student or assistant.   Rates are for training/ lessons out of Make Your Mark Stables in the Eugene, Oregon area.  Travel fees may apply.
