Sarah Foster

I met a lot of great people at this year's BreyerFest, but no one impressed me more than seventeen year old Sarah Foster.
Sarah was this year's winner of the BreyerFest Live Sportsmanship Trophy
In September 2016, Sarah was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, an aggressive and fatal type of brain cancer. Despite that, she made the long trek from her home in Orlando, Florida to attend BreyerFest. She showed at BreyerFest Live and attended our big room sales opening night on Thursday. She was a beautiful, kind, strong and brave girl.

Sarah passed away earlier today. She will be deeply missed.

  2. This first horse she bought from me she haggled like a pro to get it...I adored her immediately. She was a beautiful, spirited young woman and the universe is poorer without her.

  3. We met her and her mom at the artisan event at breyerfest. We were toward the front if the line Thurs night. We held their places in line behind us while Sarah rested in her room and then we allowed them to go in before us. So very sad to know she passed away and so young.
