Riding Star Ranch is a great place to volunteer. We are all family up there the people make you feel right at home. It is great when we have people come out for trail rides they are so excited to ride and be with the horses it makes you feel good to see the people so happy.All the kids at the ranch are great we get things done as a team its so nice to work togeather. I would be up there 7 days a week if I could just being there with the horses makes my troubles go away. I love Riding Star Ranch.I wouldnt voluteer any were else. Robin

My experience at this ranch was wonderful, my husband and I rode the horses and loved the place. The people that ran the barn were very nice and the horses looked very well taken care of. The atmosphere was very pleasant and welcoming no matter what level of experience you have, there were several different activities going on and it seemed to have somthing for everyone. We went on a trail ride and the horses were very well mannered and I was completely omfortable riding mine, as was my husband who has very little experience. I think this place has a lot to offer and I definately reccomend this as a 'to do' in florida.

My daughter is currently 10 years old and has always been a horse lover. I am a single mom and have always taken her to watch the horses at open fields in Punta Gorda, Fl . Until January of 2011, we had come across a flyer for Riding Star Ranch. My daughter, Kaitlyn began lessons in February 2011. She is very dedicated to these horses. In addition, her grades have come up in school to straight A’s. She strives hard to achieve in school so she is able to be with the horses on the weekend. Moreover, riding at Riding Star Ranch, has given her a goal to become a veternarian and own her own horse one day. While at the ranch, she is learning about horses and how to take care of them more than I ever thought she would. Kaitlyn’s dream is to become a teenager and volunteer at Riding Star Ranch to help with the horses. Although, we do not have a lot of money and struggle through these rough economic times, I strive to keep her with the ranch because it sets her expectations high for herself with something she loves to do. Kaitlyn has recently brought to my attention, how she would like to do “horse gymnastics”! I hope in the near future after going through this program of learning about horses and how to ride, riding Star Ranch will be around so she can get that experience too. The Staff at Riding Star Ranch has became her new family along with the horses. If she was able to be there 7 days a week, she would be. She enjoys helping there when she can, and would do anything if had to do with the horses (including cleaning out the stalls). Riding Star Ranch has given Kaitlyn great motivation to do good in school and to learn about horses, it also gives her the chance to learn responsibility along with keeping her active.
Riding Star Ranch was a great dream for Kaitlyn and I that had become true reality in February of 2011.
Thank you for taking the time to hear how Kaitlyn’s dreams have come true. Thank you Riding Star Ranch!

Riding Star Ranch is my reason for visiting Florida twice a year.
The ranch and stables are impeccably clean and the staff is wonderful. They take great care to match your riding abilities with the proper horse.
I am so looking forward to my next trip and riding adventure.
