BUILDING ON 25 YEARS OF ACHIEVEMENT
News Around the Barn:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
With a fairly difficult start to 2020, I am astounded at how well the horse industry here in New England was able to adapt and thrive.
Rising Star Equestrian Center celebrated its 25th anniversary this year and we want to thank all of our clients for continuing to support us - especially during these unprecedented times. Because of all of your efforts we have been continuing to operate safely! While we are keeping our existing preventative measures in place since Covid, we have added two hospital grade HEPA filters in our heated grooming stall and observation areas to help keep us safer as we button up those areas.
Our summer and fall seasons were actually pretty good...We were able to continue showing with great results!! Our riders rode and placed successfully all summer long and had one of the best Finals season we have ever had....Liz Russell, Allison Joyce, Lindsey Bihuniak, Stella Patenaude-Arnone, Gen Loring, Nora Jackson and Celia Geoughan all produced ribbon winning efforts at the MHJ, NEEC and MHC Finals....pretty impressive for our small but mighty team!!
Did I mention Allison Joyce? Rising Star is happy to announce that she is going professional and will be the newest addition to our staff in 2021. We also want to welcome Tom Yetter who joined our coaching team this fall and has been a fan favorite with both staff and clients. Having both of these great people join our Rising Star team will really enhance our program going forward and we are proud to have them come aboard!
We also want to congratulate our IEA Teams for their successes this fall. Because of Covid our season started early and finished before we had to move things indoors because of the cold weather. It took coaches Bridgit, Tina and Karen to get our 42 riders to their shows. (A special thank you to our Region President Geralyn Szczurko for organizing this season). We have several individuals and our Upper School Team qualified for Zones! Go RSET!!
We want to congratulate Julia Cahill on her purchase of MTM Nik and Stella Patenaude-Arnone of her purchase of Floor! We wish Floyd and Pumba the best of luck and much happiness in their new homes and look forward to seeing them out at the shows.
