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.
