RSR Equestrian Team

Presenting the
Riding Star Ranch
Equestrian Team!
Est. November 2010

     The Riding Star Ranch Equestrian Team was formed as a way for the students of Riding Star Ranch to expand their knowledge and test their riding abilities by going to local horse shows.

    In order to become a member of the team, students must pass through training with Miss Becky and earn her approval to show. After completing that task, she will decide what classes to enter the students in at the show.

     On the day of the show, the students will be responsible to know:
          ~ which classes they are entered in
          ~ how to properly care for and tack their horse
          ~ help their team members prepare for classes
          ~ assist in loading and unloading the trailer

The Riding Star Ranch Equestrian Team is proud to present

The Dawn Star Riders!

     This special group of girls are our younger riders, 10-years-old and under. They typically show in the short-stirrup and beginner classes so they can be introduced to the horse show life without too much pressure. These girls are just as special as the older riders because they will learn everything there is to know about showing, from caring for their horse between classes to riding in the arena to loading the trailer before and after the show.

     We hope to pair each younger rider up with an older rider like a buddy system in case there are any questions they need answered, as well as assist the older rider as they show. The older rider will act like a mentor to the younger riders during their classes as well.

The girls need your help!

We need sponsors for the team or individual riders, to help cover entry fees, travel costs, or to help us save up to buy a trailer to help us all get to the show at once!

Some of the riders need help getting equipment for themselves and their horses to progress their riding and get into the show ring. Others need help with updating their show equipment to working condition.

Any donation helps and all proceeds go to help the girls get out into the show world and help promote Riding Star Ranch.

Call (330) 428-5577 for more information or
email with any questions.

Team News!

February 2012
     Our girls are ready to show! Now that Riding Star Ranch has settled into their new home, the girls are anxious to get in the saddle and into the show ring. A whole new team has formed, each girl specializing in different disciplines and wonderful aspirations. We hope to attend some upcoming shows to start learning about what to expect, as well as prepare ourselves  and our horses mentally and physically.
     Our goal is to get a few of our girls into the April shows hosted by PGHA at Carmalita Park in Punta Gorda, FL. We have a lot of research to do and things to buy, so we hope to hold a few fundraisers throughout the month of March to help fund our show expenses. March 17th is a pending Yard and Tack Sale to help benefit the Equestrian Team for the April shows, so stay tuned to learn where it will be held!
