Rising Star Equestrian Center, Inc. has been owned and operated by Kathleen Haas Ogonowski since 1995. In 1997, Kathy bought the equestrian facility Rising Star now calls home.
In addition to Kathy, RSEC is proud to have trainer/managers Bridgit Douglas, Sheryl Miller & Tina Geoghan and instructors Alexandra Wright and Allyson Shogren on staff. Together this dynamic team strives to provide a quality program for horses, competitive riders and weekend warriors alike. RSEC offers boarding, training, showing, leasing and sales, lessons, farm animal husbandry and riding fitness programs. We teach students of all ages and ability levels. Rising Star has a fleet of very sweet and talented school horses and ponies available for lessons and lease. We pride ourselves in developing dedicated, conscientious and successful horsemen. Over the years, riding students of Rising Star have qualified and placed in local, regional and national finals through the high level of training they have received at our facility. Many students realized their own life's passion and became professional riders and trainers themselves!
