Depiction in the series

Season five

Sassy "I have a special surprise for you" S5E14
Sassy Saddles first appears in Canterlot Boutique as Rarity's manager for her new establishment in Canterlot. According to Rarity, Sassy previously worked in various Canterlot boutiques before Rarity hired her. As part of her managerial position, Sassy plans out a multi-point plan to bring the boutique a lot of business, from marketing to public relations, and she helps Rarity organize the boutique's grand opening.

As soon as Canterlot Carousel is open to the public, however, Sassy assumes an over-controlling share in Rarity's business. She changes the name of the signature dress in Rarity's new clothing line without her approval, makes it the only dress sold in the boutique, and takes more orders for the dress than Rarity can handle.

Sassy eventually becomes so swept up in the boutique's success that she starts to take all the credit for it. Rarity angrily confronts her and decides to close the boutique with a going-out-of-business sale, selling the dresses that she originally wanted to sell but Sassy refused to advertise.

When Sassy sees how popular Rarity's other dresses are, she finally understands Rarity's rules of time, love, and couture. Before Sassy can quit her job, Rarity allows her to stay on as Canterlot Carousel's manager, and Sassy promises to run the boutique in accordance with Rarity's ways.

In Rarity Investigates!, Sassy Saddles helps Rarity with her femme mystique chic line in Canterlot Carousel. Along with Rarity, Sassy rights the store after Rainbow Dash accidentally knocks everything over and chooses Rarity's outfit for the Wonderbolts' dinner that evening.
