Sarah Berkowitz 

Sarah is a native of the Kansas City area and graduated from the Mill Creek Pony Club, having achieved her HA certification.  After graduating from K-State with an Animal Science degree, Sarah moved to Idaho where she established Bell Mountain Farm in 2005.  

​On the West Coast, she competed her homebred mare through the Intermediate and 3* levels of Eventing, coached riders through the Intermediate level of Eventing and second level Dressage, helped riders achieve national Pony Club certifications, and trained many young horses in the disciplines of Eventing and Dressage. Sarah is a USEA Level III Instructor and earned her certification in 2009 from the United States Eventing Association. 

Having returned back to Kansas City in 2020, Sarah now operates her business, Bell Mountain Eventing, out of Northridge Farm.  She is actively riding and eventing her own thoroughbred and continues to take lessons herself regularly. She believes that continuing education is important from actively competing in the sport to auditing and riding in clinics to attending teaching seminars to further her knowledge and gain experience. 

Sarah enjoys training, teaching, and coaching riders and horses of all ages and backgrounds. To schedule lessons or training, contact Sarah directly.
