Canterbury Farm's Trainers & Staff
During her multiple working student positions she was able to compete in both the hunters and jumpers and bring along young horses, while attending school at Arizona State University. During her collegiate career, Sarah spent time during the summers working in the Midwest with Nancy Whitehead of Roc USA soaking up all the knowledge she could. Much of her time was spent helping on the ground, and assisting in breaking out young horses. In December of 2017, Sarah decided to finish her Bachelor’s Degree online at Arizona State from home and began her professional career for the Franklin’s.
Since beginning her work at Canterbury, she has received numerous opportunities to work with all different levels of horses in the show ring and at home. For the month of March in 2019, Sarah was able to join Canterbury in Florida to compete at HITS Ocala and did well in preparing horses for their junior and amateur clients. She continues to produce solid rounds in both the hunter and jumper ring at local shows and out of state shows, and hopes to maintain her career as a young professional.
Marcia is a horse lover, hands-on owner, and is great with kids. Before becoming an owner of Canterbury Farm, Marcia was a school teacher for 20 years in a Northbrook School District. Together with the rest of her family, she prides herself on creating a warm family environment for all of the horses and riders that train at the farm.
