About Sara Jensen

Although Sara did not grow up in a farming family, she knew her place in life was in the agriculture industry. Her first step, go to Oklahoma State University and major in Agricultural Communications where her passion went from a spark to wildfire. Next, she met a super cute farm boy in an Animal Science class who had gorgeous curls and lime green eyes. It just so happened that Sara would marry that boy from class three years later and live in a small, farming community southwest of Oklahoma City. Her husband, Jared, currently works on the family farm where he raises wheat and manages a cow/calf operation. Sara, a budding photographer and freelance writer, is the Assistant Editor for the NRHA Reiner at the National Reining Horse Association where she writes and edits material for the international monthly magazine dedicated to the sport of Reining. While they don’t have any children yet, their dog “Sadie” keeps them on their toes at home.
