Sarah and Ros first met about 9 years ago when they both played for Louth Hockey Club. As Rosalind Canter Eventing really took off, Sarah offered to lend a hand as she had her HGV licence. "I think my first event as groom was Burnham Market (Norfolk). Things then began to snowball and I ended up being out most weekends as well as plaiting, bathing, riding out and helping at the yard."
Sarah's first major trip was accompanying Ros to Austria in 2013 where Ros rode for Great Britain in the CIC2* European Championships. Sarah was one of the official Team GB grooms. "I have since groomed for Ros at several international events, including all 'the big B's in Britain' as well as travelling to Ireland when Ros represented her country at her first Nations Cup and then Poland last year."

If you want to see Ros in action, she will be competing at Rockingham and Houghton horse trials later this month, where yes, you've guessed it, Sarah will be grooming and competing (Rockingham). "Busy, busy, busy!"
