Sarah Watson


Sarah was a “poster child” for the Teens program since the very beginning.  She was a fierce competitor, placing well with “Rookie”, 3rd with “Chance” (later named Sally) and even winning our program finale as Champion with her horse “Cisco”.


Sarah Watson 2012 Mustang Adoption Challenge In-Hand Grand Champion pictured with her mustang Cisco and Josh FitzGerald.  She was a kind, sweet competitor as well as a loyal role model and friend to us all. After Sarah decided to no longer compete in the program she was just as committed by voluntarily training 3 different raffle horses and donating all of the expenses. 


She cared deeply for her horses and treated everyone she met so well. Her smile is noticed by hundreds when they see her pictures on our banners and brochures. Sarah was blessed with the MOST supportive and outstanding family.  Her parents Dan and Andrea Watson are incredible people and are a major donor to this scholarship.  


Sarah’s life was tragically ended much too early in a motorcycle accident in 2018.  We wanted to honor Sarah and everything she gave to our program by creating this college scholarship in her memory.  It is a wonderful way each year that we get to say thank you again to Sarah and help another fellow trainer chase after their life goals.
