PROGRAMS

Our programs are geared toward educating the public on the reality and responsibility of horse ownership, and to help our community make better choices for America's at-risk horses.

Education with our Spokes Ponies

Army, Navy and Pixie are the community Spokes-Ponies at Rising Starr.  They spreads the word and educate all ages on the reality and responsibility of horse ownership and how you can give America's at risk horses a second chance.  They are available at your venue, or you can come out to the farm. ( No riding, this is strictly education)  Contact the Team at (203)762-6046 or (203) 257-8345 or via email at Risingstarr100@gmail.com for more information

VOLUNTEER EDUCATION

Volunteers are vital to RSHR.  We need a wide variety of helpers at the rescue of all ages.

Volunteer opportunities include care of the horses and farm to reading to some of our shy or traumatized horses.  We have something for everyone.  Don't worry we will teach you! Riding is not a volunteer activity.

VETERAN OUTREACH

Through our community outreach, we offer all our regular programs to veterans and their immediate family at no cost to them. A riding lesson or a trail ride is a very relaxing and beautiful way to spend a day. Having a life coaching session or yoga with horses can change your outlook on life. RSHR wants to share the compassion horses have for humans. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.

Resilient Riding - with StandFast Alliance. StandFast Alliance identified a need for resiliency training to help first responders, military personnel and families optimize performance and deal with occupational stress. Through our educational workshops and peer coaching programs we seek to make resiliency training accessible to this community.

LIFE COACHING

Jenn T Peterson is a Certified Equus Coach trained by the Koelle Institute for Equus Coaching and a Shamanic Reiki Master Teacher with 15+ years as a senior executive in advertising. Through her powerful combination of personal and business development skills, clients are achieving their goals of calming their anxiety, finding love, having healthier relationships and thriving in their careers and businesses.

Jenn’s coaching draws on the intuitive nature of horses. You'll receive immediate biofeedback from the horse. The horse intuitively is able to uncover what needs to heal and shine a light on your strengths. Jenn’s method helps you calm down, gain clarity, increase confidence, find courage, self-trust, self-love, and self-worth.

When you’re not sure how to identify what is holding you back in your life or your business, let Jenn show you how with the assistance of the horse.
