This is a fun day put on in memorial of an avid horse lover, Roger Peters, for the riders to show off everything they've learned at STARS.  This event consists of various patterns for the riders to ride through as well as a BBQ lunch afterwards.  This event is open to the public!  Contact us with any questions.

This non-riding horse class is for adults 50 and over who have always wanted to learn about horses. This half-day class will teach you how horses communicate with each other, and how to safely interact and engage in activities that encourage bonding between horse and human.  Click here to read more...

Attention anyone that enjoys golfing, we will once again have our annual Par for the Horse golf tournament.  We will be holding this event at Whispering Creek Golf Course.  The cost is $300 for a four person team.  This price includes a meal and carts.  Please contact us for more information.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will be holding a sibling horse camp.  This camp is sure to be just as fun and exciting as our other camps.  Since this is a new event, we do not have ALL of the details figured out, but we will be sure to post more information as we figure everything out!  We are always looking for things to add and ways to grow, so we couldn't possibly be more excited to watch this come together!

If you are interested in getting someone involved in one of our therapeutic riding classes, please come to the STARS Riding Facility on either March 13th or March 14th at 6 PM.  At this registration, we will give you more information on the programs we offer, give you all necessary paperwork, and give you any other important information.  Please contact us with any other questions.
