Lauren LoPiccolo first got her start in pony club at the age of nine. Lauren worked with Sarah Ballou, Grand Prix Jumper, at Emigrant Springs Ranch in Grass Valley, CA. She competed five years on the Hunter/Jumper Circuit including the Spruce Meadows International Horse Show in Calgary, Canada at the age of 17. Lauren then went on to compete for the Intercollegiate Equestrian Team at the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. While working towards her Agricultural Business Degree, Lauren began competing more heavily in Three Day Eventing under the direction of Gina Miles, a Silver Medallist in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Upon graduating from college, Lauren received the highest rating in Pony Club, the A-Rating. Lauren continues to be heavily involved in Pony Club as an examiner for ratings, lessons, and teaching at camps. She has continued her coaching education by completing the ICP training/workshops and looks forward to receiving the certification. On top of coaching and training, Lauren is riding and competing her own horse to one day achieve her goal to compete at the Rolex 4 Star Three Day event in Lexington, Kentucky!
Lauren has over 10 years of teaching experience as well as expertise in training and selling horses. She recently moved to Big Sky Equestrian Center. She specializes in training and coaching for Three Day Eventing, Dressage, and Hunter/Jumpers. All levels of horses and riders welcome!
“I feel it is very important that both horse and rider develop confidence through a upbeat and positive environment in order to perform to the best of their ability.”

S.R. Dressage has clients around the world and throughout the United States. Sabine teaches riders from the training level through Grand Prix Dressage. Her emphasis on Classical Dressage, personality, and ability to truly teach the rider makes her a wonderful instructor. Besides Dressage, Sabine also trains many of her clients in Show Jumping. When Sabine isn’t at home training, riding, or instructing, she also travels to conduct clinics for equestrians of all levels. She has been featured at many top clinics working alongside international trainers.
Sabine’s large network of horse facilities and trainers around the world has made a niche for her in finding spectacular horses to bring back to the United States. Sabine knows what type of horses will work for each rider and can find a suitable horse whether it is here in the United States, or in Europe. Once she finds a suitable horse for a rider she is able to prepare each horse to work with that rider. Many horses in Europe are used to a style of riding that is different from the style of riding in the United States. Sabine can make the transition for both horse and rider seamless as they begin their partnership together. Sabine also enjoys beginning young horses herself and can be seen at many horse shows riding alongside her clients.
We are saddened to be losing Meagan as a trainer here at Big Sky, but so excited for her on the purchase of her own facility in Auburn! It only makes sense for her to run her business out of her new home! We wish her the best of luck! Please contact her directly at
