The Shooting Star Trick Riders
Sarah Rouse learned to trick ride from Sara Sevits while in college at Truman State University.  She grew up teaching horse skills at a girl scout camp near St. Louis.  In college, she was actively involved with the Truman Equestrian Team, competing in both western and english classes.  After college, she worked at
Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge, TN for several years.  She currently is performing with Sara Sevits in the Shooting Star Trick Riders and teaching horsemanship skills at Rodeo Bible Camps.  She lives in Unionville, MO with her husband Jason, two daughers, and two twin sons.

Sarah’s horse is a sorrel gelding named Toby, known for his smooth gait and steady spirit.  Purchased from the girl scout camp where Sarah worked, Toby has proven to be a superbly reliable trick riding mount! 

Sara Sevits has been trick riding since the age of eight years old. She joined a club in Kansas City called the Rodeo Kids, where she performed drill team riding and trick riding in local shows all throughout her childhood.
Sara later spent much time with Linda Scholtz, a 2 time NFR trick rider.  Sara attended and later taught at rodeo Bible camps, sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys. 

After riding with the Truman Equestrian team in college, competing in western, english, jumping and reining classes, Sara worked briefly at the Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge, TN.  She later returned to Missouri to marry Jeremy Sevits. 

Sara taught high school science for several years, but currently is a stay-at-home mom with her daughter.  She is the camp director for the Chariton Hills Rodeo Bible Camp.  She raises Pembroke Welsh Corgis and enjoys spending time with her husband! 

Sara currently trick rides on Jag, a gray American Quarter Horse gelding.
