Cassie Sanger

VREA's 1st rider select

Cassie Sanger Collection

'Royal'

This brilliant, vibrant blue is a hue fit for royalty, which is exactly how it came by its name. Royal was inspired by Cassie’s CCI4* horse, Fernhill Zoro, also known as “The King”, who is all heart and never stops trying for his rider. This lively color embodies the confidence and positivity of its namesake. Pair your Royal top with a neutral to lend it a more classic style, or with other bold colors
for a more daring look.

Cassie Sanger Collection

'FYRE'

Color lovers, we’ve got the perfect shade for you! Named after Cassie’s spirited Advanced level event horse, Redfield Fyre, this vibrant orange is an ideal hue to complement almost any neutral-hued breech option. Fyre is the perfect choice to add a pop of color to your outfit while still having a versatile piece of clothing that’s easy to style.

Cassie Sanger Collection

'Dream'

This soft, pale blue got its name from Cassie’s first Nations Cup team experience in Europe, which she describes as “a dream come true”. The cool neutral tones of Dream make it easy to wear and style for a variety of outfits both in and out of the barn. This fresh shade is perfect when you’re looking for something classic and subtle that’s not just your basic white.

About Cassie

Connecticut native Cassie Sanger has already made quite an impression on the sport of eventing in her Young Rider career. Cassie grew up riding with Darrah Alexander, who she credits with being pivotal in guiding her development as both a rider and a horsewoman by teaching her the value of hard work and dedication.

After spending some time on ponies as a child, Cassie’s first horse was Danger Mouse, an upper-level eventer that she leased from Caroline Pamukcu. Although Mouse had accrued a long list of accolades with Caroline, he was a quirky horse that wasn’t particularly easy to ride. Still, once Cassie figured him out Mouse’s experience proved to be invaluable, cruising up to CCI2* level and winning Reserve Champion at the 2021 American Eventing Championships in Kentucky. From there she acquired Redfield Fyre as a recent import to the U.S. and began cementing their partnership as they progressed up the levels. Wanting to add to her string, in early 2022 Cassie got Fernhill Zoro, a small horse with a big heart that she felt an instant connection with. By the end of the 2022 season Cassie and Zoro finished third at the prestigious CCI3*L at Maryland, which along with her successful season aboard Fyre helped her clinch the 2022 RevitaVet USEA Young Rider of the Year title.

In early 2023 she based with Leslie Law in Ocala, FL, participating in the U25 camp, moving up to the Advanced level, and tackling her first CC4*S. Impressing the selectors with her proficiency in all three phases as well as her cool competitive nature, Cassie was selected to her first team experience and invited to compete overseas as part of the U.S. Eventing European Development tour. Traveling to Strzegom in the summer of 2023 as a member of the U.S. team at the FEI Eventing Nations Cup Poland CCIO4*-NC-S was an experience that Cassie described as a dream come true. The team, which also included Jenny Caras, Andrew McConnon, and Caroline Pamukcu, brought home second place, with Cassie delivering a solid performance in her first appearance abroad.

In the meantime Cassie’s family relocated to Delaware, which prompted Cassie to move her horses to the farm of current coach Caitlin Silliman, near Unionville, Pennsylvania. Recently named to the 2024 U25 Emerging Athlete Program, this talented, ambitious young rider already has an incredibly impressive resume, and the continuation of her journey looks just as promising.
