Meet Our Team - Sara Roth

Meet Our Store Manager - Sara Roth

I may be one of the newest recruits to The Farm House… but I already love being part of the family and feel like I’ve been here years.
Like many others, horses were with me from the start, and I was lucky enough to have a mom and grandma who shared the same passion with me. I grew up doing a little bit of everything… from western pleasure and dressage to hunters and jumpers. I then competed in IHSA while I attended school at Maryville College.

I started out in the industry managing barns and then transitioned to managing tack shops. Before coming to The Farm House, I managed a mobile unit and traveled to some of the biggest horse shows in the country. It was an honor to outfit top competitors at HITS, Split Rock, WEC, and my personal favorite, LGCT Miami! What more could you ask for- horses, gorgeous weather, and the fact that after closing for the night, the beach was literally a few feet away!

I love everything about tack shops, the sweet smell of leather, the great conversation, and most of all- getting to help other equestrians. My favorite days are when someone comes in looking for a new show coat. I equivocate it to shopping for a wedding dress. We have to find just the right color, fit, and feeling… and when we finally find the right one, the customer’s eyes just light up and they know. The perfect coat!

While I loved life on the road and seeing new places, I’m beyond excited to plant some roots here at The Farm House and go on adventures with my two Arab crosses, Kadar and Chance! These two are such characters and always keep me smiling. I’ve had Kardar since he was born and my greatest accomplishment is that I helped cultivate him into such a well-rounded guy. He is currently living his best life as a therapy pony and I’m so proud of him!

When asked about my favorite products, I have to mention Quicksilver (both my ponies are grey) because it has become a running joke around the shop. There may have been a day where I cleaned out my tack trunk and there were 4 unopened bottles of Quicksilver just hanging out (where are my grey owners at?? You know my pain!). You will also always find me wearing my Kask helmet and have Bit Butter somewhere in my grooming tote. I love how well ventilated the Kasks are and I may be slightly addicted to how yummy bit butter smells.

When not at The Farm House or adventuring with my horses, I enjoy going to farmers' markets with my Papillons, Sebastian, and Verseis!
