Sometimes it’s the people we meet that change our view of the world!
Moving to the other side of the globe, alone, was not easy, and I was often asked the question “you’re here, living alone, all by yourself…why?”
Anyone who knows horses, stopped when I said, “My horse is here”, the non horse variety continued with…”And?” lol
Having my horses here made it easier, as it gave me an escape. When I’m on the horse, I don’t know where I am, what country, what culture, how hot or cold it is, I just know I’m with my horse, and that is a kind of home for me.”
When I leave the stable, I found it was the people I met, slowly, that made the other side of the world, seem not so far away.
Then there are the people you meet, that change you for the better, or perhaps make you learn something you didn’t know about yourself.
I found that my once “I am independent, and I don’t need anyone”, attitude, could actually find quite a lot of comfort in allowing myself to lean on someone else.
For a period, I was without a trainer, which was difficult, but when people asked who trained me, I told them the answer was obvious.
The person, to teach me the most about myself, is my horse.
My mum used to tell me that some people are connected to horses, and that she used to watch Nuno Oliveira, who was physically not exactly the model athlete, but when he got on a horse, it was magic.
I don’t assume to ever have that kind of talent, but I can sure strive for it everyday, by listening to what my horse is telling me, and trying my best to let him show me what he is made of!
To anyone who likes my classical articles, I have been told on many occasions now to put all my pieces together, with added extras, to create a book, “Classical Training From The Ground Up”
Please, if anyone knows a publisher who may be willing to support my dream, I would be so grateful, or even if anyone may be able to help in any way at all 🙂
Thanks so much Sarah Warne

Kickstarting Warney’s Whip!
What can I whip up to entertain readers?
I am a writer, it is my passion, and while my mind is full of the junk the world piles on us there are two ways for me to free myself from the chaos…
One is writing
The other is riding my horse
So this blog will be a mix, of writing about my horsey endeavors, to writing about the world.
Main sections will be…
Warney’s Whip: Articles on my training, and interviews with the world’s top riders/trainers/judges!
Warney’s Wisdom: What I’ve learnt in my travels about people, animals, people that act like animals, etc
Warney’s Wit?: well, at least I think I’m funny!
Determined to make you laugh, cry , scratch your head (hopefully the top one), but most of all i’ll make you think….
About your horse training, about your life, about how nuts I must be, about how nuts you must be, and hopefully leave you thinking….
I can’t wait to see what she blog’s next!
It won’t all be puppies and fairy floss! Having lived for more than ten years with depression I understand all too well the feeling of wanting to punch someones face in when they tell you to “just cheer up”!
If you haven’t been through something like that yourself, then perhaps my blog can help you better understand what NOT to do and say!
My first emotional story is my tale of despair, and will make you wonder about the power of the mind, and also the power of grief, loss and survival!
Anyone who tells you there are steps to grieving, are kidding themselves. There are no steps, only a never ending journey that we just get used to, but never get over.
Coming up….Interview with Rider of Fuego, and the truth behind how he ended up training with Jan Bemelmans???
Anky: dropping the reins to get back in the arena!
Training FLY CHANGES on a young horse!
Thought of the day…. You know it’s going to be a good one when you put your socks on the wrong feet and your shoes on inside out….
Anyway, off to my unicorn!
