SAS Sport Horses

horse1Thienel & Lusk, LLC, provides legal guidance for a wide range of business clients, among them, people involved in equestrian enterprises. Attorney Rebekah Damen Lusk is attuned to the business concerns of people who raise, train, and board horses, because she owns a horse boarding facility. One of her clients – SAS Sport Horses – is the subject of this month’s Client Spotlight feature.

Her clients come to her with other training needs, too, and she occasionally travels to other locations – including client farms – to deliver the personalized training clients need.

sas-horse-ridingSolomon founded SAS Sport Horses in 2009, initially retraining off-the-track thoroughbreds. The business gradually expanded to train all types of horses for skilled competition. She has worked with horses that have no training background, as well as horses that are learning advanced-level skills.

Solomon has worked with some of the most widely recognized names in the equestrian community, including Boyd and Silva Martin, William Micklem, and Linda Zang. She also clinics with Julio Mendoza, of North Carolina-based Mendoza Dressage, and Olympic competitor Stephen S. Bradley.

SAS Sport Horses began working with Thienel & Lusk in 2016.

“Rebekah took immediate interest in my needs,” Solomon said. “Her intimate understanding of the equestrian world makes her perfect for equine legal needs.”
