Thinking of buying, but not sure about the expenses and the committment?
Five Star offers a First Time Owner Program to help clients enter into horse ownership by establishing a partnership with the riding school. We are willing to lease your horse for up to 2 years in order to offset your costs. We offer many lease options to help with the expenses of owning a horse. Most of the horses in the lease program have been selected for their owners and then leased by Five Star to other clients.

Mustang Pony: Leo was originally from a herd in Wyoming. He came out of the wild as a baby and at 10 was adopted by his loving owner Abbie, after being rescued from some people who were up to no good. Leo lived with Abbie for 10 years until she decided that Five Star Equestrian would provide him with a good home. Leo is very intelligent, like most Mustangs. He is also very sweet and gentle and communicates well with people. He can be a bit lazy at times, but takes care of his riders, stopping if he thinks they may be in trouble. He's a really good boy and we are happy he has become a part of our family.
