Head Trainer, Lisa Blackmon's philosophy of training for herself carries over to her philosophy of training horse and rider.
"As a student of classical training, I feel training of the horse must come in stages that follow the German Scale of Progression. Showing and awards are only the results of a well-trained, happy and confident horse and rider team. All horses in Black Star's training program are treated as top athletes with attention to the horse's diet, health, soundness, conditioning and endurance building." -Lisa Blackmon
Black Star Sport Horses believes the success of an individual comes best from the support of a strong team. We are committed to being that strong team for our riders, horses and clients of all levels, experience and journeys.
