I started taking lessons with Sabrina in 2014 on one of her horses..  Sabrina's coaching helped me get enough confidence to ride bareback, compete in shows, and I even won my first blue ribbons with one of her horses. When it came time for my own horse, she helped me find Leo, and train with him so that we trusted each other. Leo went from spooking at birds to being able to trot along next to me while I rode a bike because of the amazing start in training we got while at Sunnyluck Performance Horses.

Sabrina is a great horsewoman! She is very knowledgeable and has tons of experience. I sent my horse to her for three months for foundation training and to get some really good buttons on him. She did so well with him that he won his first western dressage test at a schooling show. I would have definitely been at her barn tons more if I had been closer. Don’t hesitate to work with her. I promise you won’t regret it.

While riding with Sabrina my riding, confidence, and general understanding of training improved exponentially! I'm grateful for all the skills I learned and the opportunity to ride so many fantastic horses. Sabrina's horses are great, and they set a high bar for future horses! The horses she trains are quiet, soft, and have great minds. I wish she wasn't states away!

Sunnyluck Performance horses is a great barn to be involved with. Ive been riding with Sabrina since 2014 and she has given me so many opportunities and has taught me so many things. Every lesson I feel accomplished and learn something new. She gives you the chance to love her horses as if they were your own. Want to show? She will help you get ready for the show ring. Come and have some fun with all of us at SPH.

Excellent fun loving environment, Sabrina is an awesome teacher willing and makes lessons and learning loads of fun! Missing her after a year of her leaving but I know she's doing great and helping those in Washington now.

I had just been given an older ex college rodeo horse, and was looking for someone to both help me rehabilitate her and help me with my western riding lessons. One of my friends mentioned that a new trainer had moved in very close to me, so I checked out Sunnyluck Performance Horses. To say that I am pleased is an understatement. Sabrina Duncan is an outstanding trainer.  I am pleased and so am my horses!

Sabrina Duncan has been such a wonderful part of my life and will continue to impact my personal training program. I attended one clinic in 2010 of Sabrina's and not only learned a lot, but had fun and received individual attention with five other people present. She does not discriminate between breeds or looks, she see's the talent in each and every horse that comes onto her property. I have my own training program at home and without her help, my program would not be where it is today. She taught me the importance of elevated and balanced shoulders as well as stressing to me the importance of moving their shoulders to get a natural headset. I apply this into my program and get such amazing results. Thanks, Sabrina! `Alex Schoen, Three Peak Ranch Performance Horses.

Sabrina Duncan does a wonderful job of helping us become better at forming a partnership with the horse. Her philosophy of horsemanship allows the horse to find the right answer without fear of making a mistake which helps forge a true partnership. Sabrina also gives her riders the room to figure out the right way to ask her wonderfully trained horses which I believe helps the rider build confidence and also learn more than just the mechanics. Now that I have my own horse Sabrina's help with getting to know and build a good trusting bond with clear communication using training without resistance has been invaluable. My beautiful mare has come out of her shell and feels comfortable sharing her opinions and my confidence builds with every session. I can not thank you enough Sabrina for all that you are teaching me.

I’m not sure where to even begin in this review of Sabrina and Sunnyluck Farms/Performance Horses. When I started working with Sabrina, I had hardly any knowledge of reining and came to her with big dreams and a very green horse that I had started myself. Sabrina not only took me under her wing as a student but also as a friend. She can work wonders on even the most stubborn horse. The horse I brought to her was one with a complete lack of motivation and a hatred for work that ran pretty deep. The reining fundamentals that Sabrina uses to train turned my stubborn mare into a beautiful, collected mover with great flexibility. Sabrina also worked with me and increased my horsemanship and knowledge of training ten-fold. I am forever grateful for the time that she dedicated to me and my horse, and I would love to work with her again if given the opportunity! For anyone who is close and has the chance to work with her and her amazing horses…GO FOR IT! It’s the chance of a lifetime and the time you spend at her barn will be invaluable.

I brought my green broke apha mare to Sabrina for finishing and couldn't have been more pleased. The way Sabrina is able to teach and communicate with the horses is second to none. Within a mere 3 days there were already positive changes. I am a competitive show rider and in our very first western dressage show we placed 1st out of 7 riders. That was only 3 weeks after arriving at Sabrina's. My mare is so happy and loves to work thanks to Sabrina's wonderful training. She's easily the most fair trainer I've had the pleasure to work with.


Karen Moody Heap

I am a former pleasure show rider without a horse who went to Sabrina for lessons to learn to rein. Her horses are awesome as she is a great trainer and now I lease one of them so I can ride more often. The people who ride here are friendly and caring toward animals. She also has a beautiful breeding stallion and some pretty goals from him

I've been taking lessons from Sabrina since 2014 and have learned so much from her! She is an excellent instructor; always patient but keeps me challenged. Her lesson horses are absolutely amazing - they all have great personalities and are well-trained! I highly recommend Sunnyluck Performance Horses to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their horsemanship.
I am beyond blessed to be able to train with an amazing group of people and to train under such an awesome instructor.

Kristine Brown

I had my young mare in training with Sabrina for a month back in June and what a great trainer and teacher she is. My mare learned so much from her in the short 30 days she was there and i am so happy with the way she has turned out, she really taught her to use her body and mind and do this while moving forward.I also really liked that she knew my horses bloodlines and they way that line learned so it wasn't a battle to teach her things. I highly recommend Sabrina and Sunnyluck Performance Horses to anyone who wants to learn and work with someone so knowledgeable and understanding.

The atmosphere at Sunnyluck is nothing I have ever been around. The smiles, the good morning are you ready to ride. Its like family! Its amazing. Very positive place. I'm very greatful for Sabrina at sunnyluck. She's a beautiful, wonderful person. She has heIped me threw so much. All the horses there are very well mannered, happy horses


Steven Taylor

Amazing, caring trainer.
Not just a horse whisperer, Sabrina is a rider whisper as well, and is capable of getting the best out of both.

Katie Wall

I've been taking lessons and just put my gelding in training with Sabrina. She's had him for 2 weeks now and I could not be happier with his progress! She's taking great care of my boy and he's making huge strides not only with her but with me as well. SPH is a fun, supportive environment and I am so glad I found you guys! Thanks so much for everything! 


Karan Gust

My 10 yo daughter was getting riding lessons with another barn nearby and we were so frustrated with her callousness and egotistic manner that we took a break for a couple months. Then I looked online for another trainer and we fell in love with Sabrina. She is kind and encouraging, she knows how to take care of her horses. Now my daughter knows how to clean stalls, paint posts, water horses, bathe horses, braided manes and tails, and the list goes on. We adore Sabrina and dare and coconut and puzzles and the three foals and...


Brittney Kemper

I've been an owner of a homegrown Sunnyluck  horse for about 5 years now, and I must say this horse is as great as the day I bought her! Once Sabrina teaches a horse something it sticks! I wouldnt trade my Sunnyluck horse for anything. She is a kind and sweet mare I can trust anyone with. Originally I took lessons with Sabrina, I was a nervous rider, she handled the situation with kindness getting me back and comfortable in the saddle in no time.

Hannah McKenzie

Sabrina is amazing! I really look up to her as a trainer and mentor. I've worked with some trainers who lose their patience easily, or don't explain things well, but Sabrina makes everything so easy to understand, and is so encouraging. She really makes sure she understands your level of riding before asking you to do something you're not capable of. You can tell she has a ton of knowledge under her belt, and she truly loves what she does. Her horses are so responsive to cues, and SO MUCH FUN to ride! Sabrina is a very genuine and honest person and I recommend her 1000%!


Denise Weber

Sabrina not only helped me solidify my love for reining horses, but she also helped me immensely with my three year old mare. She is an excellent teacher and it is quickly apparent how extensive her equine knowledge is. I wish Sabrina didn't have to leave Colorado, but I understand why she did. If you have a chance to work with Sabrina I highly recommend it.


I can't say enough great things about Sabrina Duncan!! I bought an amazing 14 year old gelding (Classic Hollywood Sox) from her last February and haven't had a day of regret! Sabrina owned Hollywood for most of his life and the benefit of being raised by an amazing trainer shows. He has every "button" you could want, is versatile, safe, and respectful...perfect for my 8 yr old daughter. He is a barn and 4-h favorite for sure! Additionally, Sabrina kept in touch with us on a regular basis to make sure the partnership was successful. I enjoyed her help so much that I drove from Colorado Springs to Ft Collins (3 hours) to begin reining lessons with her. I have worked with multiple trainers over the years but Sabrina is by far the best; she is patient and encouraging and I will greatly miss training with her now that she has moved to WA.

Kaylee Hurni

Sabrina Duncan is one of the best trainers. In my time with her when she worked in Fort Collins she brought my relationship with my mare to the next level as well as did a phenomenal job with her while she was in training at Sunnyluck Performance Horses. Sabrina is the kindest most caring trainer and knows whats she is doing. She is a skilled trainer that gets results!


Willow King

I worked with Sabrina for almost two years as an intern, and I learned more in those two years than I have ever learned anywhere else. She not only gave me confidence with young and green horses, but she also improved my skill as a rider and got me completely hooked on reining. Sabrina develops relationships with each horse that comes into training and each horse leaves with a better respect for their rider and a fantastic work ethic. I'm proud to call Sabrina my teacher and my friend, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an honest, talented, and caring trainer.
