Sally Dorothy Ann Clark (née Dalrymple, born 11 April 1958) is a New Zealand equestrian who won a silver medal at the Olympic Games. She was born in Palmerston North.[1]

Clark's international eventing career began in 1987 as part of the New Zealand Trans-Tasman Trophy team. She was short-listed for the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul but her horse Sky Command died. Clark had to wait 8 years to attend the Olympic Games and finished second to team-mate Blyth Tait in the individual Three Day Event. She won Gold with the New Zealand team the following year at the World Equestrian Games in Rome.[2]

In 1999 she appeared on a postage stamp issued in Senegal.[3]
