Sarah Warne is a young journalist currently riding and training with a top Portuguese dressage rider. She went to Portugal to find the perfect Lusitano for her mother, and has since made many contacts with great breeders and riders.

Sarah has seen so many horses and can help interested prospective purchasers get in touch with the best breeders and have a look at some videos of quality horses for sale. And at good prices too, as Sarah lives in Portugal and knows the people more intimately, she is not quoted "foreigner prices".
