Laurie Jakubauskas

Farm Manager and Instructor

I started riding when I was 3 years old in Madison Tennessee, when my Dad decided to acquire a few horses, one an unbroke, Shetland pony mare. That is the pony that started my life with horses and taught me many lessons , most importantly to never give up. During High School, I trained ponies and horses and sold them to pay for my college education. At Lynchburg, in Virginia, while majoring in Business Administration, I rode on the intercollegiate team, trained young horses for a local trainer and eventually was asked to teach the Intercollegiate students my senior year. From 1996-2014, I was the consulting trainer for University of Delaware where they won the National Championships in 1996.

 

Throughout my equestrian career, I have ridden and coached nearly every discipline including hunters, jumpers, western, dressage, eventing and foxhunting. Competing successfully at the International level of showjumping has been a real highlight of my career, but being able to pair riders and horses together, and developing both into a successful team, has been hugely gratifying. My passion now is sharing the knowledge I have with others and helping riders and horses reach their personal goals.

Laura retired from riding after a battle with a long illness and is now an instructor at Emory and Henry Equine college.

Sara Daniel Haynes

Sara Haynes has over 30 years of experience in hunters, jumpers, and equitation with numerous accomplishments at the local, regional, and national levels as a rider, trainer, and coach of people and horses of all ages. 

Sara attended college at Clemson University in South Carolina where she majored in Political Science and Economics and rode on the school's IHSA team. It was during this time that Sara truly built a foundation as a rider for a professional equestrian career. Competing under the tutelage of Pam Baker at Hillcrest Farms, Sara rode the venerable Rumours Follow to many top hunter finishes on the national stage, including championships at Ocala, Upperville, Loudon, and Keswick Hunt Club. She was recognized six times as Best Amateur Rider at HITS Culpeper, also qualifying for indoors. 

Later, with guidance from to North Carolina professional Lee Cone and Windbrook Farm, Sara would develop amateur horses Follow Me and High Flight, going on to win many championships in the amateur hunters and equitation. During this time she would also break and train 15.2hh Country Grammar, with whom she would achieve many wins in the children's/adult jumpers. After many top finishes over the years in the GHJA, BRHJA, and PSJ medal finals, Sara culminated her amateur career in 2005 by taking the win in the PSJ and BRHJA Adult Medal Finals and became a professional equestrian the following year. 

In 2005, Sara built her training and show business, Teneriffe Enterprises, from the ground up. Under Sara's guidance her students won at all levels, claiming wins and top finishes in the IHJA medal finals as well as top year end ribbons in divisions from short stirrup through the children's jumpers. They were also successful nationally, qualifying and ribboning at national indoor finals, USEF Pony Finals
