North Star re-opened in Delaplane with strict Covid sanitation protocols in place.

Thanks to your support, all horses received the highest quality care and stayed in light training while lessons were closed. We were thrilled to offer respite visits for our families during quarantine.


We would love your continued financial support in the efforts of our equine partners and in the spirit of service to our families. Please consider donating!

Our Why

North Star Stables was founded on the dream that people of all abilities can co-exist in a recreational and academic setting. And that families, especially caretakers of people with special needs, should have a respite from the harsh realities of the world. The setting for that dream is a high-caliber riding academy founded in the spirit of classical riding principles for the well-being of the horse. Our riders, their families, and our equine team members receive the highest levels of care and empathy because we believe that "choose kindness" is a philosophy to live by. North Star operates under the highest safety standards in order to protect our riders, as well as humanely possible, from the unavoidable unknowns in the sport.
