     To truly know the horse and communicate with it you must be able to understand

                     how and what it thinks…we must learn to speak horse.

At Morning Star Stable our Custom Training Program looks at each horses individual personality and designs a training program that is right for them.

Our goal is to train your horse to be a confident, well-mannered partner that is able to perform, as you desire.
Each horse and rider team is different and we cater to the needs of the team. Sometimes the horse needs most of the work, other times the rider needs to improve their skills and learn how to effectively communicate to their partner. Sometimes the team needs to be split up, the horse working with a more advanced rider and the rider working on a more advanced horse to both improve their confidence, balance, and proper use of aids.


Start your horse the right way or fix the problem horse with the help of loving, experienced horse professionals. We encourage you to audit our training sessions and to schedule additional lessons with your horse, in training.

 The After School Program was formally known as "Junior Equestrians." This program includes 2 multi-group riding lessons per week, supervised practice riding time, how to courses in: feeding, grooming, tacking up, horse care and stable management. The ASP was designed to keep those serious young equestrians riding on a regular basis through the busy school year. The group lessons continue to give your child hands on instruction where they can develop their skills and continue advancing as a rider. The practice ride time allows for your child to become an independent rider where they can use the knowledge they've learned in lessons and apply it in a variety of riding situations such as: trail riding, riding in open fields, riding on different terrain in different weather and footing conditions, and riding for the mere pleasure of it without thinking of earning points or qualifying for a show. The un-mounted how to courses help your child become a good all around horseperson and prepares them for proper care of a horse if they were to have their own at home. 

Bus drop off if child attends SAD 59. Must coordinate this with the school.

Experience the benefits of owning your own horse without the expense of buying one!

Leasing a horse means that it's not necessary to buy a horse, you do not have responsibility for the full care of a horse, and best of all you do not need to buy all the necessary equipment for a horse. A lease offers a great opportunity to decide if owning a horse is for you and also allows a rider the opportunity to advance and explore the different styles of riding before purchasing a horse to meet the riders level and goals. It also allows more time for practice which results in trail riding, showing, and off farm rides! Leasing is an excellent way to form a bond between a horse and rider.

MorningStar Stable is a small family run stable. Our mission is to provide a safe, family, friendly atmosphere where children and youth can can be kept happy and healthy, as opposed to walking the streets and / or being bored. Our young people are our future and we want to be part of mentoring the next generation to dream big dreams, and to have the skills necessary to accomplish those dreams! The hard work, responsibility, confidence, and joy that flourish when working with these spectacular animals are only a few of the important life skills that students at MorningStar Stable will develop.


We know that times are tough and not all those horse crazy kids out there can afford to have the wonderful experience of working with and riding horses. With this reality in mind we have developed our bartering program. There are many hours of labor that go into keeping this facility up and running, as well as a never ending, "to do" list that grows longer as we seek to expand to be able to reach more people. If you are a parent that wants their young person to have an opportunity to experience these wonderful animals, while being kept busy and developing important life skills or if you want to sponsor a young person but finances are getting in your way you might be able to help us. If you have materials and / or equipment available or skills in carpentry, wood working, welding, large equipment repair, logging, house cleaning, landscaping, etc., or are hard working and willing to paint, repair fences, mow lawns, put up hay, shovel shavings, etc. contact us and we can talk.

                                                                                                                           *** If you are involved in a bartering program no other discounts offered by MorningStar Stable will apply.
 

NEEDED ITEMS:

Gravel. Sand. Pressure Treated Lumber.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:

Manure Spreader. Arena Rake for 4-wheeler or small Kubota tractor.
