Why are we raising funds?
Many of our riders are Special Olympic champions and depend on equine therapy as a modality to meet the educational, behavioral and physical goals specific to those with disabilities.

Our program is growing, and our large outdoor arena is in need of a cover. Currently, when it rains or snows we are forced to delay or cancel lessons.

This fundraiser is an effort to raise support to cover our large outdoor arena, ensuring that our riders never miss valuable therapy because of inclement weather.

Please come help us ‘Raise the Roof!’

About Bright Star Stables
Bright Star Stables is a nonprofit organization which was established in 2010, giving riders with disabilities a place to learn to become effective and competitive equestrians. Therapeutic lessons are conducted at a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) certified facility located in Rougemont, North Carolina.

Students of all ages come to us with diverse backgrounds and ability levels. For children and adults with disabilities, working with horses like ours can be a life-changing experience. In fact, we believe no other therapeutic recreational opportunity offers so many benefits in such a holistic way. Students will be taught equine care, riding, handling, and management to their best level of ability.

Some of the Bright Star students have competed in a variety of equestrian shows for riders with special needs, as well as open, able-bodied horse shows. Our lesson horses are retired show horses that have experience in all classes. Classes are offered in a variety of disciplines: English and Western, including pleasure, trail, and showmanship.
